Evita features music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice and is one of their most successful musicals, as evidenced by its well-known signature anthem: "Don't Cry For Me, Argentina".
The musical is based on the life of Argentine political leader Eva Peron who became the spiritual leader of the nation, rising from nothing to become one of the most famous political figures in the country’s history. It follows Eva’s early life, rise to power, charity work, and eventual death.
More than just a modern-day Cinderella story, Evita is a powerful musical about ambition, politics, class, and an overwhelming need for acceptance and love.
