About Evita

With more than 20 major awards to its credit, the original Broadway and West End production of TIM RICE and ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER’S iconic musical Evita, directed by legendary Broadway director Hal Prince and starring Tina Arena, is now playing at the State Theatre, Arts Centre Melbourne.

EVITA charts the story of Eva Peron, wife of Argentine dictator Juan Peron, from her humble beginnings through to the extraordinary wealth, power and status which ultimately led her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’ by the Argentine people.

Featuring some of the best loved songs in musical theatre, including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, Oh What A Circus, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall, this smash hit show truly promises to be THE THEATRICAL EVENT OF THE YEAR!

Please note that the role of Eva Perón will be played by Tina Arena, and at certain performances by Jemma Rix. To view the current schedule of Jemma Rix performances, please visit the Cast Schedule page at
