In our latest Whatsonstage.com Radio programme, the star of Evita, Argentinian actress Elena Roger, talks to Roger Foss about recording the new cast CD, learning to sing in English and her favourite moment in the show.

Following its return to the West End on 21 June 2006 - exactly 28 years after the original production – Michael Grandage's critically acclaimed revival at the Adelphi Theatre of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's classic musical is now available as a cast recording.

Based on the life and times of Eva Peron, the second wife of Argentinian dictator Juan Peron, Evita chronicles the life of Argentina's most powerful and complex figures, set against a backdrop of social and political turmoil, until her death in 1952.

Produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Nigel Wright, with executive production by Tim Rice, the new CD contains all 18 songs from the show, which also features the Oscar-winning "You Must Love Me" originally written for the 1996 film version starring Madonna, and is performed by the West End cast that, in addition to Roger, includes Philip Quast as Juan Peron and Matt Rawle as Che.
