INTERVIEW: Tina Arena talks Evita and her return to musical theatre

Tina Arena is returning to musical theatre after ten years, taking on the role of Eva Peron in Opera Australia and John Frost’s production of Evita. The production is a re-creation of the original 1978 West End staging, directed by Broadway legend Hal Prince.

We spoke to Arena about the challenges of stepping into such a huge vocal and dramatic role, and finding the darkness of her fascinating character.

Evita is at the Joan Sutherland Theatre, Sydney Opera House, from September 2018

  1. I do hope this show will come to Melbourne. Any dates? I saw the production here about 30 years(?) ago. It was brilliant.
