Evita Charts the rags-to-riches rise of the First Lady of Argentina, who won the love of her countrymen after marring military leader-turned-president Juan Peron. Set in Buenos Aires between 1934-1952, the musical follows Eva Duarte Peron on her journey from fatherless child to ambitious actress to the most powerful woman in Latin America-and, eventually, to a saint like figure after her death from cancer at age 33. The events in Evita's life are presented in rock-opera style and editorialized on by the show's narrator, Che. Winner of multiple Tony Awards in 19080, including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical.
