Oxford Operatic Society brings Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s iconic musical Evita to Oxford Playhouse, charting the rags-to-riches story of Eva Peron.

Set in Argentina between 1934-1952, this Tony Award-winning musical follows the young and ambitious Eva Duarte on her journey from poverty to the wife of military leader-turned-president Juan Peron – becoming the First Lady of Argentina and the most powerful woman in Latin America, before her untimely death from cancer aged 33.

Evita features a chart-topping score from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice including Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, Oh What a Circus, Buenos AiresAnother Suitcase in Another Hall and the Oscar-winning You Must Love Me.


They’ve got rhythm, they’ve got music, they are OXOPS; who could ask for anything more?
