You're invited to join other alumni and friends and see Evita including a special talkback for Stanford alumni with Director Sammi Cannold '15 following the performance at the theater!

Fame, power, and illusion collide in a new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s rock-opera Evita. This acclaimed musical examines the rapid and controversial ascent of Eva Perón, the first lady of Argentina, until her untimely death at age 33.  Solea Pfeiffer (Almost Famous, Hamilton) plays Eva as she emerges as a populist hero ensconced within the elite circles of Buenos Aires society. In iconic ballads like “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” and “You Must Love Me,” Pfeiffer reveals the savvy artistry with which the eventual celebrity rose from her humble origins.
