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 and making its first national tour, this stunning production is directed by Tony nominee Michael Grandage and choreographed by Tony winner Rob Ashford. Learn More

Excellent dancers, but bad coreography.
The men will dance several American premieres created especially for them by Mauro Bigonzetti, Nacho
Duato, Marco Goecke, Edward Clug, Patrick De Bana, Jorma Elo and Marcelo Gomes.
The evening’s program includes KO’d, which is a special collaboration by three of the dancers. The piece
is choreographed by Gomes, set to music by Côté with costumes by Hallberg, Jazzy Five by Bigonzetti
will feature costumes by famed designer Igor Chapurin, and be performed by Hallberg, Gomes, Côté,
Vasiliev and Matvienko. Duato’s work is titled Kaburias and will be danced by Hallberg. Goecke
choreographed Tue, in which Côté is featured. Matvienko will perform Clug’s piece, Guilty, set to music by
Chopin. De Bana’s work, Labyrinth of Solitude is a solo for Vasiliev and Elo’s Still of King will star Gomes.
Gomes will conduct free preview talks before all performances of Kings of the Dance 2011. The preview
talks will give audiences a rare opportunity to hear from one of the dance world’s biggest stars about how
he created a new piece for the production and also to ask questions. Preview talks will be held one hour
prior to each performance. They are free to all ticket holders of Kings of the Dance 2011.
