EVITA

Argentina’s controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the President’s mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Eva “saint to the working class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military” was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique to the 20th century. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the First Lady herself.
