Evita Kansas City TicketsEvita is the brainchild of legendary musical impresario Andrew Lloyd Webber. It is based on the true story of Argentine political leader and first lady Eva Peron. The biographical musical covers PeronÕs life, political career and charity work up until her death in 1952. The idea for the musical grew out of a rock opera concept album that Webber and Rice composed in 1976. The two musicians deployed an eclectic range of musical styles from classical to rock to traditional Argentinian rhythms to honor the music of the region. The musical proved to be a hit with audiences, and it has birthed multiple revivals as well as local productions over the years. You can catch a live performance of the Evita tour at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, Missouri.
