Ware Operatic Society are pleased to announce our 2021 musical will be Evita, the fabulous and emotional story of Eva Peron.
Audiences can look forward to the show's iconic songs, such as 'Oh! What A Circus', 'Don't Cry for Me Argentina', 'Another Suitcase in Another Hall', 'Rainbow High', 'Buenos Aires', and 'On This Night of a Thousand Stars'.
But what's it all about?
Evita is based on the historical story of Maria Eva Duarte de Peron, a poor Argentinian girl who grows up to be the wife of the President of Argentina, worshipped by the people.
A young woman who longs for fame and fortune, Eva quickly learns that her feminine wiles hold power among a culture and a political system run by men.
As Eva's ambitions grow, she finds fame and power.
In the role of First Lady of Argentina, she aligns herself with the poor, winning herself and Peron (the President of Argentina) popularity among Argentinians. She becomes a hero to the poor and the working classes, but an enemy to the rich.
This blockbuster musical, made even more famous as a 1996 Hollywood film starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, shows both the righteous determination and the ruthless power of Argentina’s 20th Century matriarch.
