BALKAN ELVIS – Aloha from Dubrovnik by Blue Leaf


In this brand-new show, festival favourite and alternative cabaret legend Mikelangelo gives the King an almighty resurrection, bringing him back to life in a way you’ve never seen before! Balkan Elvis – Aloha from Dubrovnik reimagines how Elvis’s life would have played out if he had been born in Communist Eastern Europe in the 1970s. With rock’n’roll illegal in the Eastern Bloc, the Balkan Elvis finds himself preparing for the biggest show of his life, a live telecast concert from the walled city of Dubrovnik during the Balkan War – what could possibly go wrong?! Balkan Elvis is an intimate and engaging evening of musical storytelling with one of modern cabaret’s great talents, written by Michael Simic and directed by Sam Strong.

Combining original script and songs by Michael Simic, along with reinterpretations of Elvis classics, Aloha from Dubrovnik is a two hander, featuring Mikelangelo on vocals and guitar, and Dave Evans on piano accordion and vocals. The show follows on from the success of the Balkan Elvis production Eastern Bloc Rock, which toured Australia in 2018.
