Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Tim Rice’s much-beloved 1978 West End musical is coming to Shanghai this September. Evita follows the life of Eva Peron. It's a story about an Argentine girl who charmed and worked her way up from poverty and eventually married the country’s leader General Juan Peron.
Evita was conceived as a sung-through dramatic piece and 'Don’t Cry For Me Argentina' proved to be the most popular single from a show for many years. However, it was 18 months after the release of the record before Evita arrived on stage. The production was directed by Hal Prince and was an artistic and popular success.
You can see Evita at SAIC Shanghai Cultural Square from September 6-15.
