EVITA
Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff

 

Following its smash hit run in London's West End, Bill Kenwright's production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Evita is set to thrill audiences once again across the UK. Telling the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, Evita follows Eva's journey from humble beginnings through to extraordinary wealth, power and iconic status which ultimately lead her to be heralded as the 'spiritual leader of the nation' by the Argentine people.

 

With more than 20 major awards to its credit and featuring some of the most iconic songs in musical theatre, including Don't Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall, this smash hit show truly promises to be the theatrical event of the year!

 

All the tickets for Evita have been sold out but we do have space on our coach for anyone who would like to send the afternoon in Cardiff for shopping.

When the local acapella group gathers in the village hall they have every reason to look forward to their weekly rehearsal. There’s Steven, 60, the Cambridge-educated choirmaster; Diane, his younger wife; Ben, who was once a professional tennis player married to Connie, who was once a model; and Bruno, a young history teacher, who cares for his mother.

 

They appear to be the friendliest bunch you could imagine. Whatever differences or problems they may have at home, they are happily bound together by their love of music. Two hours of laughter and harmonies fly by, until one day newcomer, Maggie, knocks on the door and everything changes…

 

Members £56.95 | Guests £59.95
