Product Description


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 Wow Oct. 8 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This movie was definitely Madonna's best performance.
Even though this is the soundtrack, her singing is by far her best.
When listening to this soundtrack, one can almost visualize the storyline.
Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Madonna at Her Best! Nov. 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
I love this soundtrack and I am not a big Madonna fan, okay I am, but in this soudtrack she is outstanding. I only wish it had the entire movie on it, but that is unrealistic. I love this soundtrack so much and I think it is amazing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what you're used to... Jan. 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've watched the movie so many times over the years, so when I got the soundtrack I was a little disappointed. I understand that they had to re-record the songs for sound quality, but Madonna, Jonathan, and Antonio could have tried harder to make certain songs sound like they did on the screen. For a person who's heard the same thing over and over and expected the same thing on the soundtrack, it was very disconcerting. It pulls me out of being swept up in the marvelous orchestration and lyrics and gives me the "nails on the chalkboard" feeling.
I still recommend the soundtrack, but just be aware that it's not exactly what you're used to...

I am a big Madonna fan and all , but this album is just plain horrible all the songs are really horid and resemble "Phantom of the Opera" or some other Broadway musical--dont waste your money on this crap if you are a Madonna fan, buy it if you are a musical fan

3.0 out of 5 stars Madonna... y poco más Oct. 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
Francamente es una lastima que en esta grabacion, hecha a mayor gloria de MADONNA, que proporciona una 'Evita' muy bien cantada pero que peca de distante por momentos, se hayan descuidado algunos papeles, como el fundamental 'Che', que aqui esta a cargo de un ANTONIO BANDERAS muy bien el la vertiente psicologica del personaje, pero muy flojo en la parte meramente musical. Lo mismo puede decirse del 'Peron' de JONATHAN PRYCE, que es actor pero no cantante.
Cumple mucho mejor como 'Magaldi' un JIMMY NAIL, que sin tener la fuerza de un tanguero real sabe sacarle partido a su rol. De lujo la 'Amante de Peron' que nos brinda ANDREA CORR (la vocalista de "The Corrs", que aqui se luce con ganas.) Secundarios y coro cumplen con suficiencia, y algo mejor la orquesta.
Un disco que para los amantes de Madonna puede tener mucha calidad, pero para los amantes del musical es francamente de un nivel de correcta suficiencia, pero ¿es que acaso no se puede hacer nada mejor a dia de hoy con 'Evita' que una version solo correcta?

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm I Missing Something? Aug. 9 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Not sure if people here are completely honest. Madonna's vocal performance on this amazing EVITA score was not much to be desired. There were obvious vocal limitations, and Madonna improvised all the way through. The "music" in this soundtrack was good. Antonio Banderas is also another who was not vocally qualified for this incredible Andrew Llyod Webber musical production. Patti Lupone and Mandy Patikin were the true vessels of talent for the EVITA project.

3.0 out of 5 stars Madonna sounds amazing Aug. 6 2003
By LouBeOH
Format:Audio CD
Madonna sounds amazing. Her voice is expressive and has awesome power and range. She easily carries the soundtrack. The other leads, Antonio Banderas & Johnathan Pryce are excellent as well. The reason this CD gets only 3 stars is because as great as the vocals are and as nice as the production values are; it still sounds like a 70's bloated rock opera! On screen this is a good thing. The overwraught melodrama adds to the grandeur and scope of the film, but, doesn't work as stand alone music. The exception is the new ballad "you must love me" which is passionate and heartbreaking in it's simplicity. BTW: Don't get this if you're looking for the radio version of "don't cry for me Argentina". That's a remix and available on the cd-single; not here.
