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.
An astonishing voice, packed with knockout power and an ability to wrench emotion out of lyrics. Libel Music, NZ
