EVITA

evita at the barbican

The Barbican Centre's 2020 theatre and dance programme includes  the transfer of Regent's Park Open Air Theatre's 2019 sell-out production of Evita playing an eight week season there from 27th  June to 22nd August. 

The musical, reinvented by director Jamie Lloyd, was seen by over 75,000 people in Regent's Park earlier this year and became the theatre's highest grossing production ever.

Lloyd will direct the transfer and be joined by the full creative team from the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre production – design by Soutra Gilmour, choreography by Fabian Aloise, musical supervision by Alan Williams, lighting design by Jon Clark, sound design by Nick Lidster, fight direction by Kate Waters and casting by Will Burton.Evita tells the life story of the extraordinary Eva Peron (second wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron - played by Madonna and Antonio Banderas in the film of the same name) following her acting career, rise to power, charity work, feminist involvement and eventual death. She gained enormous wealth and power during her ultimate rise to sainthood.

It features some of the biggest hit songs ever written, including Don't Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night Of A Thousand Stars, Another Suitcase In Another Hall, I'd Be Surprisingly Good For You, High Flying Adored and Oh What A Circus. Casting information to follow shortly.
