One of the most popular musicals of the modern era, Evita is the story of Argentina's controversial First Lady, Eva Perón. The play opens with her awe-inspiring funeral - attended by seven million devoted followers - and takes the audience back through the previous ten years, explaining how a B-movie actress became the object of such passionate and zealous devotion. This semi-staged concert version of the full musical score takes us from Eva’s humble beginnings in rural Argentina in the 1930s, through her impoverished years and eventual success as an actress in Buenos Aires, to her eventual place by the side of president Juan Perón as the beloved yet politically polarizing figure of “Evita.” The original Broadway production of Evita was the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
