She rose from poverty to wealth, from obscurity to national symbol. The life of María Eva Duarte de Perón, adored first lady of Argentina, is full of drama and contrasts. And the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice musical about her life, “Evita,” captures the sweeping story of her journey, with the help of renowned tunes such as “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall” and “You Must Love Me.” Debuting in London in 1978 and on Broadway in 1979, “Evita” has weathered the years well, winning three Tony Awards and launching a 1996 movie starring Madonna. A recent successful Broadway revival has led to a national tour, and it will make a stop in Seattle (starring Caroline Bowman as Eva Perón, shown here). Tuesday-Jan. 5, Paramount Theatre, 911 Pine St.; tickets start at $25 (877-784-4849 or
