I know that my fellow fans of musicals might put me in their black books for liking this new recording of Evita. One can tell that there has been a mixed reaction to this new recording and the Broadway revival that inspired it. However, this is still a marvellous cast recording of the complete musical and it is very well put together.

The controversy in this recording, at least among American fans, seems to be around Elena Roger's performance in the eponymous lead role. Yes I know that people have complained that she is no LuPone or Madonna. However, as someone from Singapore who has willingly given her a chance and who is not conditioned by LuPone and co, I'm pleased with Elena Roger's portrayal. I know that the part of Eva is strenuous and requires a belting alto who can shriek out the high notes and yet seduce softly with her voice the next minute. Elena Roger's portrayal is very convincing and suits the part well. She does strain on the top notes but it's all right. I know for sure that she sounds much more seasoned in playing the role of Eva than she did on the 2006 London recording. She does sound very conniving and scheming in her solos and occasional hissy fits, and I liked her rendition of Don't cry for me Argentina, as it had the spirit of an insincere political address. It's also lovely to hear You must love me in the stage musical, after the Waltz for Eva and Che and before Juan Peron sings She is a diamond. I might say that perhaps Elena Roger is closer to Julie Covington in the way she interpreted the role on the 1976 concept album.

I thought Ricky Martin fitted the role of Che quite well. This new production conceives the role differently from the original Harold Prince staging of the late 1970s.

I love this show. I love Elena Roger and I love Ricky Martin. I thought this recording of the Broadway revival was way over produced and unfortunately I don't "get" Ricky Martin doing the role of Che. His voice is great and I can't fault him, but having seen this version of the Evita revival in London a few years before... I have to stick to the original 2006 London revival (with Elena Roger)
