      Our sell-out production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita transfers to the Barbican for 8 weeks from 27 June 2020.

      “A TERRIFIC, RADICAL REVIVAL - MUSCULAR, EXPRESSIVE AND EXPLOSIVE”
      (Evening Standard)

      From a life of poverty to spiritual leader of the nation, Eva Perón was loved, hated, derided and venerated. Dividing the Argentinian people with her patriotic speeches, her ambition, glamour and magnetism established ‘Evita’ as the world’s first major political celebrity.

      Featuring a chart-topping score including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, Oh What A Circus, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, and the Oscar-winning You Must Love Me, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's iconic musical is reinvented by director Jamie Lloyd. His transformative production was seen by over 75,000 people at the Open Air Theatre in 2019, becoming our highest grossing production ever.

      “Thrilling…sexy, full-bloodied and furious”

      Daily Telegraph

      “Revelatory…Fabian Aloise's choreography gives us knife-sharp tangos and punchy athleticism. Stunning”

      Daily Mail

      “A turbocharged, transformative revival”

      Evening Standard

      “Muscular, expressive and explosive”

      The i

      “Following a triumphant resurrection of Jesus Christ Superstar, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre works its magic on another of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s 1970s rock operas.”

      The Arts Desk

      “A diva dictator for 2019. Jamie Lloyd’s innovative, stripped-down, super-sleek, contemporary take excavates the biting satire and locates the furious spirit of Eva Perón”

      Daily Express

      “Mischievously subversive”

      BroadwayWorld

      “Groundbreaking”

      WhatsOnStage

      “Jamie Lloyd’s radical staging strips away all the glamour; what he is left with is the hard sinew and bone of Andrew Lloyd Webber's full-blooded music – arguably his best score – and Tim Rice's sharp, politically astute lyrics.”
