I have only heard little snippets of her singing as Eva, but those snippets were great. I have the OLC of Les Miserables in which she sings Fantine, and I enjoy that too. Which do you think she performed better in?

Eva... definately Eva. I could explain, but it would take me forever in my current state of mind.

Personally, I prefer Patti LuPone as Eva, though I do enjoy her Fantine as well. My reasoning is because her Eva is really sharp and strong whereas her Fantine sounds a wee bit slurred to me. But I like the little trill she does on "When the tigers come a-a-t night" in IDAD. But her Evita rocks my socks.

Eva . . . she doesn't sound warm enough at times in her Fantine, but her Eva is pretty perfect.

I started this topic as a "biased" survey for Math class...I'll put it on the Les Miz forum now and try it.

She's not my favourite performer in either role but I think her work is good in both shows. I think her work on Les Miserables is slightly better than her work in Evita, even though the latter role is obviously more complex and difficult.
