What a treat. Over the weekend l was lucky enough to see an excellent production of Evita.
Tina Arena was superb in the title role as was Kurt Kansley as Che. Paulo Szot was in fine voice along with the rest of the cast. The orchestra, under the baton of Guy Simpson, performed the well known score with aplomb. The staging was good and, all in all, it was a great performance.
We were sitting in the boondocks,
still had a good view of the stage. I even managed to sneak a peak at someone’s program.
Apparently scalpers are buying up tickets and then selling them on at a much higher price. I don’t like scalpers and urge all of you to buy tickets through reputable sources.
Thanks to my dear friend Suzanne for suggesting the show; we both loved it. I don’t see many big name shows, choosing with care and never regretting my choice.
Evita is currently running at The Arts Centre, Melbourne for the next few months.
Do l recommend you see it, yes l do.
