Evita

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's seven-time Tony Award-winning musical EVITA charts the rags-to-riches rise of the First Lady of Argentina, who won the love of her countrymen after marrying military leader-turned-president, Juan Peron. Set in Buenos Aires between 1934 and 1952, the musical follows Eva Duarte Perón on a passionate and tragic journey from her humble beginnings as a fatherless child through her fame as an ambitious actress and the most powerful woman in Latin America to a saint-like figure after her death from cancer at the age of 33.
