Every hour from noon to midnight, the Main Tent on O'Neill Plaza, Art Tent on Stokes Lawn, and the Irish Hall in Gasson Hall burst with music, theatre, dance, literature, film screenings, and art exhibitions. Surrounding these main performance venues are outdoor events as well, including collaborative sidewalk chalk masterpieces, Henna tattooing, and a BC artist craft sale.
Argentina's controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president's mistress at twenty-four, and First Lady at twenty-seven. With a score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, Evita creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.
