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.

Mikelangelo makes a little history, baby, every time each song comes around. The Adelaide Show

Written by Mikelangelo
Musical direction by Mikelangelo and Dave Evans
