CCM’s Musical Theatre department kicks off its Mainstage Season with Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s rock opera Evita. This vivacious show runs from November 17 (preview) through November 21 in CCM’s Corbett Auditorium on the University of Cincinnati campus.

Winner of seven Tony Awards, Evita brings to life the dynamic, larger-than-life persona of Eva Perón, wife of former Argentine dictator, Juan Perón. Her huge political influence and widespread charity catapulted her into the hearts of the working class, but enraged the wealthy and the military of Argentina. This exuberant production creates a gripping theatrical experience and features the memorable songs “High Flying, Adored” and the legendary “Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina,” putting into music the unfortunately short life of the unofficial heroine of Argentina.
