Legendary musical Evita will be arriving at Dubai Opera for a whopping 16-night stint in January and February. The classic Andrew Lloyd Webber show follows the story of Eva Peron, the first lady of Argentina, who dedicates her life to charity and becomes heralded as the spiritual leader of the country. Originally released in 1976, the show is famous for a number of massive songs, mainly Don’t Cry For Me Argentina – which sold more than ten million copies in the UK alone. It also hit No. 1 in eight countries, as the show itself won more than 20 major awards. The film adaptation of Evita, featuring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, won an Oscar for its portrayal of the stage show. www.dubaiopera.com.
