Evita is in København
At last the 20th March has arrived: the date on our Evita tickets!
We decided to go by train, because the Det Ny Teater is very close to Vesterport station, and parking space is very scarce in the cycle capital of the world.
All dressed-up we boarded at our local station: Emdrup.

But we had another booking as well:

And then we entered Det Ny Teater
We had seats on a balcony, and saw how everyone of the more than a 1000 seats filled up and the atmosphere of expectation thicken.
åh ja, in Danish:
Tim Rice og Andrew Lloyd Webbers blændende og sofistikerede partitur fortælles den betagende historie om ikoniske Eva Peron.
I'm first and foremost an audience-member that appreciate the design aspects of a production. And this theater's machinery works so gracefully unnoticed.
The set is extremely efficient, and the complexity of the design and operation that allows for an energetic tempo, looks simple and does not take anything away from the actors, but rather adds value throughout the show.
The lighting design is ingenious and innovative. I almost gave a solo-standing ovation for one magnificent, but very subtle effect.
The gardrobe is the vehicle that transports the audience to the Latin style of Argentina in the 1940s.
And the ovation affirmed the professional – in every sense of the word - acting & singing.
