EVITA

October 16 - November 17

Lyrics by Tim Rice, Music by Andrew Lloyd Weber

EvitaArgentina's controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate 15-yearold, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she became a starlet at 22, the president's mistress at 24, First Lady at 27, and dead at 33. Eva Peron—saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military—left a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Told through haunting chorales fused with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, Evita creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.
