Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s extraordinary musical, EVITA, features some of the biggest hit songs ever written, including Don’t Cry for Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, Another Suitcase in Another Hall, and Oh What a Circus. The story follows the life of Argentina’s infamous Eva Peron. It begins in 1934 and follows the young girl from her small hometown to Buenos Aires, where she uses her feminine power to climb the ladder of success, first as a model, then as an actress, and finally as the wife of General Juan Peron. When Peron is elected president, Eva becomes the most powerful woman in South America. At the end of her life she questions whether or not she took the right path. Complete with a talented children’s chorus, this production has proven to be the crown on the LOOK Festival’s 2011 season.
