The Elvis Years at Buxton Opera House
The story of the king…
Celebrating 10 years on the road this year, The Elvis Years at Buxton Opera House is an outstanding musical production which brings to the stage the incredible and compelling story of the ‘king of rock and roll’ – Elvis Presley.
With a top line-up of actor-musicians, multiple costume changes and nostalgic film footage, this glittering two-hour production charts the musical and emotional highs and lows of Elvis’ amazing journey from poor truck-driving teenager from Tupelo, Mississippi through the army, Hollywood and finally the legendary Las Vegas concerts.
Directed by top record producer David Mackay (Dusty Springfield, Cliff Richard, Bonnie Tyler, New Seekers), the lead role is perfectly portrayed by Mario Kombou (from West End production Jailhouse Rock), who is officially endorsed by Elvis Presley Enterprises and Elvis’ first cousin Donna Presley.
This feelgood show will instantly transport you back to the golden years of rock’n’roll, as you witness Elvis audition for the very first time at Sun Studios, then become part of the TV audience for the ’68 Comeback Special, and finally dance in the aisles at a Las Vegas concert as Mario recreates with incredible accuracy the charisma, stage presence and humour of the man himself – you may even get your hands on a scarf!
Taking in all the biggest hits including Always On My Mind, (recently voted the UKs all-time favourite Elvis song), That’s Alright Mama, All Shook Up, Blue Suede Shoes, Suspicious Minds, American Trilogy as well as Hollywood favourites Bossa Nova Baby and Viva Las Vegas, you will leave the building on cloud 9!!
