1. A CINEMA IN BUENOS AIRES, 26 JULY 1952 

(An audience is watching a movie. Suddenly the film stops. The people in the cinema begin to protest but are silenced by an announcement) 

THE VOICE OF THE SECRETARY OF THE PRESS 

It is my sad duty to inform you that Eva Peron, spiritual leader of the nation, entered immortality at 8.25 this evening. 

2. REQUIEM FOR EVITA 

(EVA's funeral. CHE is the only non-participant. He moves through the mourners, apparently unseen.)

CROWD

Requiem aeternum 

dona Evita 

Requiem Evita 

Evita 

Evita 

3. OH WHAT A CIRCUS 

CHE 

Oh what a circus! 

Oh what a show! 

Argentina has gone to town 

Over the death of an actress called Eva Peron 

We've all gone crazy 

Mourning all day and mourning all night 

Falling over ourselves to get all 

Of the misery right 

Oh what an exit! That's how to go! 

When they're ringing your curtain down 

Demand to be buried like Eva Peron 

It's quite a sunset 

And good for the country in a roundabout way 

We've made the front page of all the world's papers today 

But who is this Santa Evita?

Why all this howling hysterical sorrow? 

What kind of goddess has lived among us? 

How will we ever get by without her? 

She had her moments--she had some style 

The best show in town was the crowd 

Outside the Casa Rosada crying, "Eva Peron" 

But that's all gone now 

As soon as the smoke from the funeral clears 

We're all going to see and how she did nothing for years! 

CROWD

Salve regina mater misericordiae 

Vita dulcedo et spes nostra 

Salve salve regina 

Ad te clamamus exules filii Eva

Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes 

O clemens o pia 

CHE

You let down your people Evita 

You were supposed to have been immortal 

That's all they wanted 

Not much to ask for 

But in the end you could not deliver 

Sing you fools! But you got it wrong 

Enjoy your prayers because you haven't got long 

Your queen is dead, your king is through 

She's not coming back to you 

Show business kept us all alive 

Since 17 October 1945 

But the star has gone, the glamour's worn thin 

That's a pretty bad state for a state to be in 

Instead of government we had a stage 

Instead of ideas a prima donna's rage 

Instead of help we were given a crowd 

She didn't say much but she said it loud 

Sing you fools? But you got it wrong 

Enjoy your prayers because you haven't got long 

Your queen is dead, your king is through 

She's not coming back to you 

CROWD 

Salve regina mater misericordiae 

Vita dulcedo et spes nostra 

Salve salve regina Peron 

Ad te clamamus exules filii Eva 

Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes 

O clemens o pia 

EVA 

Don't cry for me Argentina

For I am ordinary, unimportant 

And undeserving of such attention 

Unless we all are--I think we all are 

So share my glory, so share my coffin 

So share my glory, so share my coffin 

CHE 

It's our funeral too 

4. ON THIS NIGHT OF A THOUSAND STARS (Flashback to 1934 and to a nightclub in Junin, EVA's home town. EVA DUARTE is fifteen. The cabaret is nearly over. MAGALDI is singing with great gusto.) 

CHE

Now Eva Peron had every disadvantage you need if 

You're going to succeed. No money, no class, no father, 

No bright lights--there was nowhere she'd been at the age Of fifteen, as this tango singer found out. 

Agustin Magaldi--who has the distinction of being the First man to be of use to Eva Duarte. 

MAGALDI 

On this night of a thousand stars 

Let me take you to heaven's door 

Where the music of love's guitars 

Plays for evermore! 

In the glow of those twinkling lights 

We shall love through eternity 

On this night in a million nights 

Fly away with me! 

I never dreamed that a kiss could be as sweet as this 

--now I know that it can 

I used to wander alone without a love of my own

I was a desperate man 

But all my grief disappeared and all the sorrow I feared 

Wasn't there anymore 

On that magical day when you first came my way 

Mi Amor!

On this night... On this night... On this night of a thousand stars 

Let me take you to heaven's door 

Where the music of love's guitars

Plays for evermore! 

5.EVA AND MAGALDI / EVA BEWARE OF THE CITY (MAGALDI joins EVA and her family--mother, 3 sisters, brother--at their table. CHE is loitering nearby at the bar.) 

EVA 

To think that a man, as famous as you are, could love a Poor little nothing like me!

I want to be a part of B.A.--Buenos Aires--Big Apple! 

EVA and FAMILY 

She wants to be a part of B.A.--Buenos Aires--Big Apple! 

CHE

Just listen to that! They're onto you Magaldi! I'd get out

While you can 

EVA

It's happened at last--I'm starting to get started--I'm moving out with my man 

MAGALDI 

Now Eva don't get carried away- 

EVA

Monotony past--suburbia departed--who could ever be Fond of the back of beyond? 

MAGALDI 

Don't hear words that I didn't say 

EVA's FAMILY

What's that? You'd desert the girl you love? 

MAGALDI

The girl I love? What are you talking about? 

EVA's FAMILY

She really brightened up your out of town engagement,

She gave you all she had--she wasn't in your contract 

--you must be quite relieved that no-one's told the papers 

--so far- 

EVA

I want to be a part of B.A.--Buenos Aires--Big Apple! 

Would I have done what I did if I hadn't thought, if I Hadn't known, we would stay together? 

CHE

Seems to me there's no point in resisting, she's made up her mind, you've no choice. 

Why don't you be the man who discovered her? 

You'll never be remembered for your voice. 

MAGALDI

The city can be paradise for those who have the cash, the class and the connections--what you need to make a splash. 

The likes of you get swept up in the morning with the trash--if you were rich or middle class- 

EVA 

Screw the middle classes! I will never accept them!

My father's Other family were middle class and we were kept out of Sight, hidden from view, at his funeral! 

DESK CLERK

Do all your one night stands give you this trouble? 

MAGALDI 

Eva, beware of the city It's hungry and cold, can't be controlled, it is mad 

Those who are fools are swallowed up whole 

And those who are not become 

What they should not become

Changed--in short they go bad 

EVA 

Bad is good for me--I'm bored, so clean and so ignored 

I've only been predictable--respectable! 

Birds fly out of here so why oh why oh why the hell can't I I only want variety--of society! 

I want to be a part of B.A.--Buenos Aires--Big Apple!

EVA and FAMILY

She wants to be a part of B.A.--Buenos Aires--Big Apple! 

MAGALDI 

Five years from now I shall come back

And finally say, you have your way--come to town 

But you'll look at me with a foreigner's eyes 

The magical city a 

Younger girl's city, a Fantasy long since put down 

EVA 

All you've done to me--was that a young girl's fantasy? 

I played your city games alright--didn't I? 

I already know what cooks, how the dirty city feels and looks

I tasted it last night, didn't I? 

I'm going to be a part of B.A.--Buenos Aires--Big Apple! 

EVA and FAMILY

She's going to be a part of B.A.--Buenos Aires--Big Apple! 

MAGALDI 

Eva beware your ambition 

It's hungry and cold, can't be controlled, will run wild 

This in a man is danger enough

But you are a woman, not 

Even a woman, not 

Very much more than a child and whatever you say 

I'll not steal you away! 

6. BUENOS AIRES (EVA and MAGALDI arrive in Buenos Aires) 

EVA 

What's new Buenos Aires? 

I'm new--I want to say I'm just a little stuck on you 

You'll be on me too! 

I get out here Buenos Aires 

Stand back--you ought to know what'cha gonna get in me

Just a little touch of star quality! 

Fill me up with your heat, with your noise, with your dirt, overdo me 

Let me dance to your beat, make it loud. let it hurt, run it through me 

Don't hold back you are certain to impress

Tell the driver this is where I'm staying 

Hello Buenos Aires!

Get this--just look at me, dressed up somewhere to go 

We'll put on a show! 

Take me in at your flood, give me speed, give me lights, set me humming 

Shoot me up with your blood, wine me up with your nights, watch me coming 

All I want is a whole lot of excess 

Tell the singer this is where I'm playing 

Stand back Buenos Aires!

Because you ought to know what'cha gonna get in me 

Just a little touch of star quality! 

And if ever I go too far 

It's because of the things you are

Beautiful town--I love you 

And if I need a moment's rest 

Give your lover the very best 

Real eiderdown--and silence 

You're a tramp, you're a treat, you will shine to the death, you are shoddy

But you're flesh, you are meat, you shall have every breath in my body 

Put me down for a lifetime of success 

Give me credit--I'll find ways of paying 

Rio de la Plata! 

Florida!

Corrientes! 

Nueve de Julio! 

All I want to know! 

Stand back Buenos Aires! 

Because you oughta know what'cha gonna get in me 

Just a little touch of Just a little touch of 

Just a little touch of star quality! 

7. ANOTHER SUITCASE IN ANOTHER HALL 

EVA 

I don't expect my love affairs to last for long 

Never fool myself that my dreams will come true 

Being used to trouble I anticipate it 

But all the same I hate it--wouldn't you?

So what happens now? 

CHE 

Another suitcase in another hall 

EVA

So what happens now? 

CHE 

Take your picture off another wall 

EVA 

Where am I going to? 

CHE

You'll get by, you always have before 

EVA 

Where am I going to? 

Time and time again I've said that I don't care 

That I'm immune to gloom, that I'm hard through and through 

But every time it matters all my words desert me 

So anyone can hurt me--and they do

So what happens now? 

CHE 

Another suitcase in another hall 

EVA 

So what happens now? 

CHE 

Take your picture off another wall 

EVA 

Where am I going to? 

CHE You'll get by you always have before

EVA

Where am I going go? 

Call in three months time and I'll be fine I know 

Well maybe not that fine, but I'll survive anyhow 

I won't recall the names and places of each sad occasion 

But that's no consolation--here and now 

So what happens now? 

CHE

Another suitcase in another hall 

EVA 

So what happens now? 

CHE 

Take your picture off another wall 

EVA 

Where am I going to? 

CHE

You'll get by, you always have before 

EVA 

Where am I going to? 

CHE

Don't ask anymore
