Evita is one of the most thrilling and popular musicals in the world and the winner of multiple Tony and Olivier awards. The story of Evita is about power, politics and Eva Peron, who rose from B-movie actress to the president’s office of Argentina. Featuring a hit score by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Opera North is the premier professional summer music festival of the Upper Valley of New Hampshire. Founded in 1982 and based in Lebanon, it is the only full-time professional opera company serving the tri-state region of New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. Throughout its history, Opera North has focused on bringing classic musical theatre – in a myriad of styles – to the region, working with noted international artists, designers and directors.

Each summer, Opera North produces three mainstage productions of classic operas and musical theatre, performed in repertory at Lebanon Opera House, as well as a series of concerts and special events at landmark locations in the Upper Valley.

Opera North’s Resident Artist program provides young professional artists with experience and education to further their careers, and through its Education & Outreach Program, Opera North takes free performances of music theatre to local elementary, middle and high school students, as well as public libraries around the area.
