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

EVITA is a masterly composed musical, which has gone from strength to strength, for decades.

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. Loved by the people but also a powerful seducer, due to her marriage and talent for self promotion.

Music and text to EVITA, which includes the iconic Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, is created by the kings of musical, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. They also created Jesus Christ Superstar and have received a number of awards, throughout the years. The succesfull musical was made into film with Madonna and Antonio Banderas as the leading roles.

As Evita you get Sarah Viktoria Bjerregaard, who is former Reumert nominated and known from the film, Lykke-Per, by Bille August. As Juan Perón, you can experience the singer, Bjørn Fjæstad, who has participated in several theatre concerts at Aarhus Theatre, latest Lazarus.

The music is played by a live orchestra, under the leadership of Martin Konge. In addition, dancers from Holstebro Dance Company will perform.
