Some good seats are still available, but the‘Orchestra A’ section of the Confederation Centre has almost entirely been sold for the three performances of EVITA. It plays the Main Stage on March 26, 27 and 28.
This is the blockbuster musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice which most of us know from the Madonna movie and its signature hit “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina”. It’s the story of Eva Peron.
She pulled her way up through soap-opera and ‘B’ movies to political, social and spiritual power. She burned out at 33. Despite popular adoration, a military junta banned her name, and her preserved body disappeared for a decade and a half. The elite dismissed her as a cheap opportunist ... the masses revered her as a saint.
This is a come-to-life legend – pulsing with music and passionate dance, vibrant costume and the exotic setting of Buenos Aires. Astonishing woman ... magnificent show.
Tickets: $22 and $20 at the Confederation Centre Box Office 566-1267 1-800-565-0278 www.peipresents.com
