A Migrant’s Son
Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre
Created by Adelaide’s own Michaela Burger (Exposing Edith), this world premiere explores Greek settlement in South Australia through the tale of a poor migrant’s son.
Beginning his working life at the age of seven making deliveries for the family bakery, his journey sees him down the opal mines in Coober Pedy as a teenager, before eventually opening his own chain of discount supermarkets in Adelaide, all brought to life through original compositions featuring modern arrangements of traditional instruments.
