“One of the definitive musicals of all time”: Evita

Leicester’s Curve is to stage a new production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Evita at Christmas 2023.

Curve’s chief executive Chris Stafford and artistic director Nikolai Foster said, “Evita stands as one of the definitive musicals of all time and we’re beyond excited to be presenting a new production of the masterpiece later this year. Eva Perón has now acquired legend status; her profoundly moving story is fascinating and remains intensely relevant to the world in which we live today.

“We’ve always tried to offer our audiences here in Leicester bold and visually arresting productions of great musicals. Evita promises to continue this tradition as we aim high and try to match the original ambition Tim and Andrew had when they first created this extraordinary piece of musical theatre.”

Evita will run from Monday 27 November until Saturday 13 January 2024.

The musical Come From Away will open its UK and Ireland tour in a Curve co-production at the theatre from 1 to 9 March 2024.

Curve has also revealed details of its annual co-production with De Montfort University which gives performing arts students the opportunity to work with professional teams at the theatre. Students will perform Jim Cartwright’s Road from Thursday 18 until Saturday 20 May 2023.
