Unfortunately, most peoples experience of Evita is the rubbish 1996 film version starring Madonna and Antonio Banderas, so the less said about that debacle the better. Evita is simply something that MUST be enjoyed in its natural environment - the theatre, but this cast recording of the new London production is the next best thing to actually being there, and is leagues ahead of the film version that came before it.

The thing that instantly hits you about this disc is the astounding quality of the music, which is crisp and rich. Also, the score has been radically overhauled and updated from the original London and Broadway productions - most notably on "Requiem for Evita" and "Buenos Aires". It is more dynamic and expressive than ever before, and is also more authentically Latin-American. Musically, this is an aural treat.

While the music is fantastic throughout, the cast is more of a mixed bag. There is little to say that hasn't already been said by other reviewers. Elena Roger's voice is totally unique, and she makes an extremely charismatic Eva. It's not what I would call a classic voice, but it has a raw, yet rich quality. In one sentence it will be silky smooth, yet in the very next it will jar through you like an electric drill. In a role like Evita this is no bad thing, and she is equal parts singer and actress, bringing real pathos to the role. However, for me, the definitive Eva is Elaine Paige (check out the Original London Cast Recording).

When I saw Evita at the Adelphi in June, to be honest I was not too impressed with Matt Rawle as Che. However, on this recording he is far more confident in the role, and brings more emotion into what he is singing.

I really enjoyed listening to this cast recording. As a big fan of the musical Evita, I was excited about the revival and quickly got the cd. The orchestrations are refreshing and more authentic sounding. I think they are vastly improved.

Elena Roger is amazing as Eva Peron. Her genuine Argentine accent adds to her performance. While not as harsh as others who have player her (Paige, Lupone), Roger definitely gives the part some oomf and attitude! 9/10

Matt Rawle is a great choice for Che. Although not my favorite in the part, he definitely leaves his mark on Che. His Che, in my opinion, is slightly less outspoken than others who have played him. He does have a wonderful voice. 8/10

Philip Quast has an amazing voice, I just wish he had a bigger part than Peron. He has such a rich voice. He is definitely one of the highlights of the album. 10/10.

Gary Milner really hams it up as Magaldi in "On This Night of a Thousand Stars." His voice is pleasant to listen to. 9/10.

Lorna Want is very sympathetic as Peron's Mistress. Her voice is very pure and innocent. 10/10

The ensemble is amazing, especially in Requiem.

I'd say the highlights of this album are "Goodnight and Thank You," "I'd Be Surprisingly Good For You," "Another Suitcase in Another Hall," "Don't Cry For Me Argentina," "Rainbow High," and "You Must Love Me."

A note: this CD is not the whole show but only the highlights.

I highly recommend buying this CD and adding it to your collection, you will not be disappointed!!

Slightly over produced. I welcome the new vocals with genuine heritage after Elaine's which, truthfully, were never ideal . . But Che ?? Come on Andrew, if you're going to be somewhat faithful, lacks studio presence. It's always going to be bought as it's a masterpiece but quite honestly, I'll always listen to the original (that I've paid for a few times in different formats) as this has nothing truly refreshing to offer. I thought the Madonna / Banderos version was refreshing . . This one isn't

I have loved the whole Evita score since it was first released in the 70s as a double LP with Julie Covington and I must have played it a million times after putting it onto 2 tapes. This recording is excellent and my only beef is that being a single not a double CD I noticed straight away that several songs were left off the recording. Elena Roger though still shines in the role and I think her accent makes her role more realistic. As Eva rises from the gutter Elena's accent is strong, but as she ages and becomes more refined and sophisticated the accent recedes and on the later songs you hardly notice it at all especially on the lovely Oscar winning song You Must Love Me.

... this is only a highlights recording. But before we get to this fact, one has to say a few words about the musical itself.

Over the years Andrew Lloyd Webber has made many musicals, some more successful and appealing to the public than the others. Most people will, however, agree that "Evita" remains one of his most satisfying works to this date. Numerous reasons confirm this statement. Just like in its predecessor "Jesus Christ Superstar", "Evita" is almost entirely sung-through; the lyrics are witty and appropriate; the subject matter is again a personality larger-than-life who rises from obscurity and dies at the peak of its fame, thus becoming a legend; the score is captivating and appealing to the listener, at home or in the theatre. The subject matter is quite well know, but let us repeat the essentials for the ones who are unacquainted with it: We follow the life story of Eva Duarte Peron, wife of post-World war two president of Argentina, Juan Peron. However, the musical is very loosely based on the actual life of the real Evita. The story follows Evita from the day of her death in July 1952, and then we have flashbacks until that moment, covering her coming to Buenos Aires, alleged love affairs, meeting Peron, being the first lady and dying of cancer at 33.

This CD is the cast recording of the newly directed 2006 London production that opened in June in London's Adelphi Theatre. This is the first production that did not use Hal Prince's renowned direction, but instead it has Michael Grandage, one of the best contemporary British theatrical directors. The cast who delivers the glorious score is for the most part, well picked.
