    Hello!

    I’m looking for an actual harp part for “Evita”. Does anyone have more information about whether this exists and how to get my hands on one?

    Thanks!

    I’m working with a theatre. They are doing Evita in the spring. We will be recording the score with a full orchestra for use in the production. I will be playing harp. I find it hard to believe a harp part doesn’t exist at all. If not, we will make one from the synthesizer parts.

    Hi Julianna,

    In the original orchestration a harp part does exist. There is a lot of exposed harp in “Another Suitcase”, and the second act opens up with just harp and Eva in “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina”. No doubt that more recent productions have eliminated the harp part in favor of a synthesizer, but if you can find the original orchestration, you’ll find a nicely written harp part.

    Harpist Laura Sherman played Evita. Check with her at http://www.wickedharp.com.
