With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, the compelling true story of Eva Perón comes to vivid life through stunning showstoppers like "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina," "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" and "High Flying Adored." Evita follows the path of the small-town peasant girl as she uses her considerable smarts and charisma to rise from the slums of Argentina to President Juan Perón's side as first lady, becoming one of South America's most powerful women. Though she was much beloved by her people as the voice of the poor, her inevitable downfall came through her unwavering ambition and a devastating illness, making her one of history's most tragic and dramatic figures. Direct from Broadway, this stunning production is directed by Tony nominee Michael Grandage and choreographed by Tony winner Rob Ashford. Learn More

French musician Georges Bizet composed Spanish music for the famous opera and Italian choreographer Amedeo Amodio choreographed a contemporary ballet. The movement incorporates contemporary scenic and costume design, with classical ballet as well as theatrical and modern movement to tell the story of the brash beauty who fiercely guards her independence and the two men obsessed with possessing her. Cincinnati Ballet Orchestra performs the melodic score that is replete with familiar favorites.
Amodio’s world premiere of Carmen at Tulsa Ballet garnered high praise from dance critic James D. Watts, Jr. in the Tulsa World: “Few of these ballets (other versions of Carmen) distil the essence of this story into so dramatic a form as Amodio’s. In fact, this is one of the best – if not the best – presentations of this passionate, tragic story that I've ever seen.”
The performance is scheduled to run one hour and 40 minutes, with one intermission.
