Legendary musical Evita will be arriving at Dubai Opera for a whopping 16-night stint in January and February 2018.
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 10 million copies in the UK alone. It also hit number one in eight countries around the world, as the show itself won more than 20 major awards. The film adaptation of Evita won an Oscar for its portrayal of the stage show, featuring Madonna and Antonio Banderas.
