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
Quotes & Highlights
- "Although immensely complex, the work is gripping at first sight, and reveals the quality of a company whose every member shares in the overwhelming total effect." --The Independent
You'll see why with their ballet, Nijinksy, which celebrates the life and legend of one of the most exceptional artists of all time.
Vaslav Nijinsky, the "God of the Dance," set a new standard technically as well as expressively, and achieved unparalleled fame and popularity.
As a choreographer, he created ballets that both mesmerized and shocked audiences.
Ultimately, though, his story was one of tragedy, as his genius gave way to schizophrenia, and his world disintegrated into madness.
Dance magazine hails Nijinsky as "the most ambitious project in the ballet world in recent years."
Hamburg's Orange County Performing Arts Center debut will mark a rare U.S. appearance and West Coast premiere for the company.
