The crowning dramatic achievement of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, winner of eight Tony Awards, including best musical and best score, Evita is among the most passionate and memorable productions in musical theater history. Eva Perón used her beauty and charisma to rise from her poverty-stricken roots on the outskirts of Buenos Aires to become the powerful and controversial First Lady of Argentina at the age of 27. She won international acclaim and adoration as a champion of the poor, while glamour, power and greed made her the world’s first major political celebrity. With an electrifying score inspired by Latin, pop and jazz including the riveting anthem, “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” this iconic musical is set to dazzle with a spectacular new staging at Asolo Rep.
