Was Eva Perón a champion or an opportunist? The Evita musical allows scope for both interpretations as it traces the journey of her life from rags to riches and her marriage to aspiring Argentinian president, Juan Peron.

To the descamisados, “the shirtless ones”, she represented hope, living proof of the possibility of escaping to a better life. To the Argentinian elite, her cult of personality threatened the status quo. Eva’s death at 33 brought an outpouring of grief, fueling a legend which persists until today.

Eva’s turbulent story is brought to the stage by a stellar Rangi Ruru and Christ’s College company bringing energy and vitality to this legendary musical.
