John as Che

Spektrum, Oslo, Norway
November 1997
Role: Che

Probably the most famous of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's stable of musicals, Evita details the rise to power of Juan Perón as President of Argentina, told from the perspective of his second wife, Eva. "Evita" as she was affectionately known by her husband's subjects, played a significant role in Perón's success, having risen from poverty to become the most powerful woman in Argentina by the time she was 27.

The musical begins in July 1952 at the time of Eva Perón's death from cancer at the age of 33. The story of her life is told in flashback, with Ché acting as both narrator and observer.
