A fully-staged production of the GRAMMY-nominated magic realism opera Corpus Evita. Raw ambition, black magic in the presidential palace, and the ghosts of Perón and Evita intertwine in this tale, told by someone who witnessed those tumultuous times first hand, set to a ravishing, propulsive score by Argentinean composer Carlos Franzetti. The story is about Perón's third wife and running mate in the 1973 elections, Isabel. She took over from him when he died in office in 1974, and tried to fashion herself after Evita, with the aid of a close confidant rumored to be a warlock. It was a populist experiment gone awry. In 1976 the military coup that ousted her opened the gates of hell. The country is still grappling today with that legacy.
