  3. Evita

Set in Argentina between 1934 and 1952, Evita charts the story of a young and ambitious Eva Peron’s meteoric rise to sainthood. As a young woman who longs for an acting career, fame, and fortune, Eva quickly learns that her feminine wiles hold power among a culture, and a political system, run by men. Once she makes it to Buenos Aires, Evita finds fame and influence in her powers of seduction, eventually seducing the rising political figure, Juan Perón, who becomes the President of Argentina. As First Lady, she aligns herself with the poor, winning herself, and Peron, popularity among Argentinians. Evita becomes a hero to the poor and the working class - and an enemy to the rich - until her untimely death of cancer at the tender age of 33. A young and unknown revolutionary, Che, narrates the rise and fall of the beloved matriarch of the Argentinian people.

With one of Lloyd Webber’s most-loved scores, combining Latin, jazz, pop and more traditional influences, Evita is a classic for the ages!
