In case you've been on Mars, Evita is the 20-year-old mega hit Andrew Lloyd-Webber/Tim Rice musical based on the life of Argentinian icon Eva Peron, who rose from nothing to model/starlet to powerful and revered legend by ruthless bed-hopping and self-reinvention. In contrast, Antonio Banderas just has to show up to tango away with a scene. His seemingly effortless Che is sexy, surly, sneering and tuneful.
There is not an instant Madonna, is on screen when she is not palpitating with intense empathy for Eva and the determination to be electrifying. And he certainly earns his salary with a virtually ubiquitous presence here a waiter or cleaner, there a reporter or streetfighter to provide narration. Juan Peron, but fascist dictators have never deserved good songs.
Sensational puppetry puts Elephants back in the ring as never seen before along with a huge cast of the most unique, amazing and dangerous circus acts from all four corners of the world, from strong men to contortionists, acrobats to musicians, high wire and much more!

Discover the golden age of circus this summer as CIRCUS 1903 sets to captivate audiences of all ages. Based on the 2001 Box Office movie hit starring Reese Witherspoon; it's the internationally-acclaimed romantic comedy you've been waiting for!
Madonna knocks herself out and deserves cheers for the emotional range and humanity with which she sings in Alan Parker's spectacular film.
But whether you think the movie is great or grisly, rests in large part on your palate for Andrew Lloyd Webber's music.
Divided into two parts, the first, titled Retrospective, is all about the greatest hits, while on the second, titled Reimagine, Tina herself barely appears.
Instead, she invited an eclectic collective of peers including Jimmy Barnes, Dannii Minogue, Jessica Mauboy and the Veronicas, and some of her favourite newcomers to reinterpret a selection of highlights from her career.
To celebrate the 40-year anniversary, Tina recently released a new musical collection titled Greatest Hits and Interpretations.
With more than 20 major awards to its credit, the original Broadway and West End production of TIM RICE and ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER'S iconic musical EVITA comes to Singapore in February 2018, directed by legendary Broadway director HAL PRINCE.
EVITA charts the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, from her humble beginnings through to the extraordinary wealth, power and status which ultimately led her to be heralded as the 'spiritual leader of the nation' by the Argentine people.
