With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, the compelling true story of Eva Perón comes to vivid life through stunning showstoppers like "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina," "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" and "High Flying, Adored." Evita follows the path of the small-town peasant girl as she uses her considerable smarts and charisma to rise from the slums of Argentina to President Juan Perón's side as first lady, becoming one of South America's most powerful women. Though she was much beloved by her people as the voice of the poor, her inevitable downfall came through her unwavering ambition and a devastating illness, making her one of history's most tragic and dramatic figures. This stunning Broadway production and its national tour is directed by Tony winner Michael Grandage (Red), and choreographed by eight-time Tony nominee (and winner for Thoroughly Modern Millie) Rob Ashford.

STG presents Music Matters LIVE! featuring Vicci Martinez, Alan White, Leroy Bell, Howard Leese, Star Anna and the Laughing Dogs, The Synergia Northwest Orchestra and more TBA on Saturday, May 12, 2012 at The Paramount Theatre in Seattle.
Music Matters LIVE! blends classical, contemporary, professional and student musicians into one evening of performances that unifies cultures and musical genres. The event raises funds to provide extended learning, enrichment and performance opportunities to Northwest area music students while raising awareness of the new "Music Matters" specialty license plate.
Highlights of the evening will be performances of the Synergia Northwest Orchestra with Pacific Northwest rock recording artists including Vicci Martinez, Yes's Alan White, Leroy Bell and His Only Friends, Howard Leese, Star Anna and the Laughing Dogs, Dora Oliveira's Samba Reggae Revolution and very special guests. The event will be hosted by Meeghan Black. A musical addition this year will be selections from the original scores of the rock classic Madman Across The Water donated especially for this event on behalf of Sir Elton John.
The orchestra was formed for the debut Synergia Northwest benefit in 2010 and is comprised of some of the area's finest professional classical musicians and selected players from Washington State All-State groups and regional youth and public school orchestras. The concert was launched at Tacoma's historic Temple Ballroom in the Landmark Convention Center, and in 2011, it made its Seattle debut at The Moore Theater.
