This dynamic musical masterpiece chronicles the life of Argentina’s Eva Peron, from her dirt-poor childhood existence to First Lady at twenty-seven. She was dead at thirty-three. 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 woman herself. Songs include Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, What’s New Buenos Aires, High Flying Adored, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall.
