With more than 20 major awards to its credit, the original Broadway and West End production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s iconic musical, Evita, is now playing at Arts Centre Melbourne, starring Tina Arena as Eva Peron.
Tina Arena recently celebrated her 40-year anniversary as a recording career. She is the only Australian artist to earn a gold or platinum certification for original album releases, in every decade since the 1970s right through to today. In fact, every album in her career has gone gold, platinum or multi-platinum. Theatre has been a constant presence for Tina, having starred in productions in Australia and internationally. Her theatrical work includes Cabaret, Nine, Dynamite and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. Now ten years after Tina wowed critics on the West End as Roxie Hart in Chicago, she is back with her most challenging theatrical project to date, Evita.
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, the iconic hit show promises to be the theatrical event of the year.
