Eva Perón won international acclaim and adoration from her own people as a champion of the poor, while glamor, power and greed made her the world’s first major political celebrity. Evita tells Eva’s passionate and tragic story through Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most dazzling and beloved score, including “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina.”
