Hailed as a modern masterpiece, Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award-winning musical Evita is now back in the nation's capital with a new Broadway touring production. Following the unforgettable true story of former Argentine first lady Eva Perón, Evita showcases its namesake lead's meteoric rise from the slums to the presidential mansion, where she became a champion of the poor and one of the most powerful women in the modern world. Caroline Bowman (Kinky Boots, Wicked, Spamalot) plays Eva, whose greed, outsized ambition and fragile health also made her story a tragic one. Featuring songs like "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" and "High Flying, Adored," this Evita production is directed by Michael Grandage (Red) and choreographed by Rob Ashford (Thoroughly Modern Millie), both Tony-winning artists.

Not perfect, but I'd like to see it retained in the repertoire. Beautifully sung overall, richly designed (the KC is said to sell knick-knacks modeled on the exotic, vibrantly colored decor and costumes), with some truly lovely music. If you're not into complete suspension of disbelief, don't go. But if you want a wholly "operatic" experience -- with all that implies -- from a rarely heard piece, this is the place to go.
Join Washington National Opera for Georges Bizet’s exotic feast for the eyes and ears. The prayers of the virgin priestess Leïla (Norah Amsellem) protect the fishermen of ancient Ceylon until Chief Zurga (Trevor Scheunemann) jealously condemns her and Nadir (Charles Castronovo) to death. When Zurga realizes that Leïla is the woman who once saved his life, he makes the ultimate sacrifice for their freedom and happiness. Acclaimed Italian conductor Giuseppe Grazioli makes his WNO debut.
