After 10 years in the UK and two London West End seasons, Evita is captivating audiences across the world as it continues on an International and UK tour in 2018. Having already visited Luxembourg and the United Arab Emirates, the story of an ordinary woman’s meteoric rise to power at a time of extraordinary political unrest is about to embark on a tour of the UK and Italy, opening at Torquay Princess Theatre on the 13 March.

Returning to the role of Eva Perón is Madalena Alberto, a role she received critical-acclaim for at London’s Dominion Theatre in 2014. Considered as one of the West End’s prominent leading ladies, Madalena is renowned for some of the most coveted roles in musical theatre, including Fantine in Les Miserábles (25th Anniversary Tour, The Barbican, 02 Arena), Grizabella in Cats (London Palladium) and the title role in Piaf (Leicester Curve). Her most recent credits include The Ghost of Christmas Past in A Christmas Carol (Lyceum Theatre), Polly in Pollyanna (Tristan Bates Theatre) and a guest lead in BBC’s Holby City. Alongside her acting career, Madalena is a songwriter and performs solo concerts regularly.
