Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Evita was finally filmed in 1996, 20 years after its initial incarnation as a studio-bound rock opera. In between, of course, it was one of the most successful and long-running musicals on either side of the Atlantic. Given such a long history, the film might easily have been a stale anticlimax, fatally holed by our overfamiliarity with songs such as the ubiquitous "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina." On the contrary, it was an impressive and immensely satisfying production. The numbers, augmented by a new song for Eva ("You Must Love Me"), sound fresh and the singing is excellent. Coming from Jonathan Pryce (Peron) and Jimmy Nail (Magaldi), this is hardly a surprise. The real revelation is Antonio Banderas as Che, a kind of one-man Greek chorus commenting on Eva's rise and the price she must pay. His warm tenor dispels memories of previous, rougher interpretations from such singers as David Essex and Colm Wilkinson. Ultimately, though, the star is Madonna. She is totally immersed in the role of Eva from start to finish, her singing ranging from girlish delicacy to a hard-edged stridence as the dictator's wife achieves her goals. Rarely has a film so successfully given a stage show such a new lease on life. --Piers Ford

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Bad Webber Doesn't Do More Movies. December 1, 1999
Format:Audio CD
When I first popped this double CD into my player, I was engrossed. I found myself listening to it over and over again. The movie based on Webber's Broadway Play far surpasses the original broadway score. The melodies and instrumentation are hauntingly beautiful and make the listener feel the haughty emotion and dirty sleaze of the rags-to-riches life of Eva Duarte de Peron. What can I say about Madonna? She is one of the all time divas of popular music and this cross-over has proven a good move. She breathes new life into the character which benefits from Madonna's power of presence. Madonna's powerful vocals are only enhanced by Antonio Banderas' Latin style. Who knew that this hulking "Desperado" could sing! Banderas has definately made a name for himself with his appearance in this movie, and immaculate singing and interpretation of the humerous chorusman, Che. The arrangement of the music just shows what a genius Andrew Lloyd Webber truly is. The CD features everything from classical Spanish guitar to a lamenting Ave Maria-esque dirge featuring a 100-strong choir. I recommend this set to anyone, whether you're a fan of musical theatre, film score, Madonna (actress or pop star), classical music or if you just like a CD who's music will live a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A WELL-MADE ADAPTATION OF THE STAGE VERSION August 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
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.

And yet the road to the movie version of Evita was a rocky one: It took 20 years of negotiations with different studious, directors (Francis Ford Coppola was in the game at one point), and actresses (both Meryl Streep and Michelle Pfeiffer were considered) to make it happen. When it was finally in the bag, Alan Parker took the director's seat and Oliver Stone helped with the adaptation. Before the movie came about, we had 3 major recordings of Evita: the 1976 concept with Julie Covington, the 1978 London cast highlights album starring Elaine Paige and the 1979 Broadway cast full album with a Tony-winning Patti LuPone; all three of them excellent in their own right. This 2-disc movie soundtrack can join them as another fine recording of the material. The story of Evita is widely known, but for those who are new to this let's repeat the essentials: 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Madonna finally gets a chance to SING! March 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
There are two types of reviewers for this album: those that have seen the stage show and those that have only seen the movie. I belong to the latter, thus I can only judge it from that standpoint.
Therefore, I can only say that The Material Girl does an extremely good job in bringing the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber to the screen. It is obviously that that singer worked hard; she shows a maturity that is far removed from her early "Like a Virgin" days.
A healthy release at two discs, "Evita" will have one "crying for Argentina" and wishing that Madonna could find another vehicle such as this one.

Format:Audio CD
Listening to Madonna's "Evita" Complete Motion Picture Music Soundtrack evokes the same feeling that one gets when watching the movie: "Can this really be...MADONNA?"! Well, it is she, in all her expected self-absorbed glory, but with a twist. The girl can sing; she really can. I confess that I'm no great fan of the New Queen of Pop -- oh, I admire her spunk, her business acumen, her cultural iconoclasm, her in-your-face sexuality, and her identity-of-the-month publicity personas -- she's so easily dismissed as just another Cindy Lauper with better "people." But, dammit, when you listen to this "Evita," you come away thinking, "Wow, she really can sing." And sing she does. And she can sing good stuff, too. Andrew Lloyd Webber is as close to American classical legend as one gets, post World War II, and he doesn't write commercial jingles; he writes music. Madonna appreciates this fact, and she treats his music with a reverence and style (without pretension) that I would have never expected. I will not comment further on the quality of the Evita musical score in general (it is an accepted great work of American musical artistry), but I will say that Madonna's renditions of it are exquisite -- she gives us a passion, a caring, a personal experience, a love for the music she's performing that is nothing short of captivating.
Madonna's treatment of "Evita" is not for Madonna's traditional (or perhaps I really mean stereotypical) fans; it is for fans of good music. That those two worlds collide in this CD is testament to the talent that Her Majesty would be well served to demonstrate more often.
Good job Material Girl: I didn't think you could do it, but you did.
