Let yourself be seduced by the magnificent musical bang of power and love

EVITA tells the captivating story of the Argentine Eva Perón (1919-1952), who, as the Cinderella of South America, rises from the poor lower class and becomes the celebrated First Lady of the country, married to president, Juan Perón. Born into poverty and with an acting carrier as her starting point, she became an influential politician, activist and philanthropist.
