EVITA brings to life the dynamic, larger-than-life persona of Eva Peron.
Beginning with a young and ambitious Eva, the production follows her meteoric rise to sainthood. The story tells of the enormous wealth and power she gained and the means by which she became the beloved Evita. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.
EVITA won an impressive seven Tony Awards including Best Book, Best Score and Best Musical of the year.
This new version of EVITA for schools is the 2006 London Production, including the song “You Must Love Me” (from the movie) with new musical arrangements for a 9 or 18 piece orchestra.
CASTING: 3m, 2f + Singing-dancing ensemble consisting of the people of Argentina.
