From the geniuses behind Jesus Christ Superstar and Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Evita captures musical gold with its Grammy® Award-winning score. Evita combines Latin music, pop, jazz and musical theatre styles that have captivated audiences for more than 40 years.
Evita is based on the historical story of María Eva Duarte de Perón, a poor Argentinian girl who grows up to be the wife of the president of Argentina. As a young woman who longs for an acting career, fame, and fortune, Eva quickly learns that her feminine wiles hold power among a culture, and a political system, run by men. Once she makes it to Buenos Aires, Evita eventually seduces the rising political figure, Juan Perón, who becomes the President of Argentina.
As First Lady of Argentina, she aligns herself with the poor, winning herself, and Perón, popularity among Argentinians. Evita becomes a hero to the poor and the working class – and an enemy to the rich. A young and unknown revolutionary, Ché, narrates the rise and fall of the beloved matriarch of the Argentinian people. This blockbuster musical, made even more famous as a 1996 Hollywood film starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, shows both the righteous determination, and the ruthless power, of Argentina’s 20th century matriarch.
