EVITA is back at Bradford Alhambra after 10 years of touring and visiting the West End.

The famous musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber can be seen from Tuesday to Saturday, April 24 to 28.

Telling the story of Eva Perón, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Perón, Evita follows Eva’s journey, which led her to be hailed as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’ by the Argentine people.

With more than 20 major awards to its credit, the musical was transformed into an Oscar-winning film starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas,

The show features of the best-loved 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.

Returning to the role of Eva Perón is Madalena Alberto, a role she received critical-acclaim for at London’s Dominion Theatre in 2014.

Considered as one of the West End’s prominent leading ladies, Madalena is renowned for some of the most coveted roles in musical theatre, including Fantine in Les Miserábles, Grizabella in Cats and the title role in Piaf.

Her most recent credits include The Ghost of Christmas Past in A Christmas Carol, Polly in Pollyanna and a guest lead in BBC’s Holby City.

Alongside her acting career, Madalena is a songwriter and performs solo concerts regularly.

Fresh from the recent West End production in July 2017, leading Italian performer Gian Marco Schiaretti will continue in the role of Che, a character who reflects the voice of the Argentine people.

The character is linked to Eva by destiny, and brings balance to the story of Eva’s rise to fame.
