Madalena Alberto returns to the coveted title role of EVITA, for which she received critical acclaim in the 2014 West End revival at the Dominion Theatre, on 6 December 2017 in Manchester.

Following the smash hit run in the West End, Bill Kenwright’s production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s masterpiece is set to thrill audiences again across the UK and beyond. Portuguese-born Madalena will be taking her unique interpretation around the world in countries such as Luxembourg, Dubai, Croatia, Bulgaria and Italy, as well as major cities in the UK, such as Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow.

Regarding her come back Madalena says: ‘I'm very excited to have the chance to revisit this amazing part. There are only a few roles like this in musical theatre. And I’m amazed at how three years can make a difference as I feel that I’ve grown so much, and have a slightly different view on Eva now. Even the score and words keep surprising me with their brilliance and storytelling. I can’t wait to go back to it with more maturity and a fresh heart.’

Gian Marco Schiaretti returns to play the role of Che, he made his UK debut in the touring production of Evita and later played it at the Phoenix Theatre. His other credits include the title role in Disney’s production of Tarzan in Stuttgart and prior to this, he played Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet across Italy.

Kevin Stephen-Jones will play the role at certain venues.
