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 Peron, “saint to the working-class” and the most beloved and hated woman in Argentina, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military, was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Told through a compelling score that includes What’s New Buenos Aires, A New Argentina, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, and the powerful Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina, EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.
