DECEMBER 5, 2018 - Extended MARCH 3, 2019

With more than 20 major awards to its credit, the original Broadway and West End production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's iconic musical EVITA comes to Arts Centre Melbourne, directed by legendary Broadway director Hal Prince and starring Tina Arena.

EVITA charts the story of Eva Perón, wife of Argentine dictator Juan Perón, from her humble beginnings through to the extraordinary wealth, power and status which ultimately led her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’ by the Argentine people.

Featuring some of the best loved songs in musical theatre, including 'Don’t Cry For Me Argentina', 'On This Night of a Thousand Stars', 'Oh What A Circus', 'You Must Love Me', and 'Another Suitcase in Another Hall', this smash hit show truly promises to be the theatrical event of the year!

Presented by Opera Australia and John Frost
in association with David Ian Productions.

Please note that the role of Eva Perón will be played by Tina Arena, and at certain performances by Jemma Rix.

Below are the performance dates where Jemma Rix is scheduled to perform the role of Eva Perón in Melbourne:

Wednesday 7:30pm performances on 12 and 19 December 2018, Sunday 30 December 2018 at 1pm.

The Producers of EVITA cannot guarantee the appearance of any particular artist, which is always subject to illness and leave arrangements.

Suitability: Ages 10+

December 10, 2018 issue of The Herald Sun Digital Edition.

This is very fine revival, with an outstanding performance by Tina Arena that shows how fascinating this strange Cinderella story, with its heady mix of the salacious and the saintly — remains today.
