Mikelangelo as the Balkan Elvis
Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre


What if the king of Rock and Roll had been born in Eastern Europe and played piano accordion? Mikelangelo brings his alter ego Johnny Presley – the Balkan Elvis – in this wild and wonderful quest for fame, fortune and love behind the Iron Curtain.

Living under Eastern Bloc communist rule, our charming and misguided chancer holds up a skewed mirror to the American Elvis. Reimagining Elvis’ hits as lilting waltzes and barnstorming Balkan wedding polkas, Elvis hasn’t been this much outrageous fun since 1956 – funny, moving and dead sexy.
