ELVIS — Das Musical
His look, his voice, his legendary swing of the hips—with a billion records sold, Elvis Presley is considered the most successful solo artist of all time. The world's most successful solo artist died at only 42 years old but continues to shape all generations with his music like no other. "ELVIS—DAS Musical" is a biography about the "King of Rock'n'Roll" peppered with all his big hits and revives the legend. The 2.5-hour live spectacle presents Elvis Presley's entire musical repertoire—from gospel to blues to unrestrained rock'n'roll—and impressively reviews his life in selected highlights. Emotional, rousing, and with powerful voices, the audience goes on a unique journey through time and can experience the idol of a whole generation live again at different stations in his life. Elaborate choreographies, musical scenes, and original film sequences lead through the most important stations in Elvis' life.
First-class singers, actors, showgirls and the seven-member "Las Vegas Showband" create an unforgettable musical experience. "ELVIS—Das Musical" has Grahame Patrick, the world's "best Elvis actor since Elvis" in the starring role, and of course the big hits are interpreted live—from "Love me Tender" to "Jailhouse Rock" and "Suspicious Minds."
The show spectacle gets its uniqueness not only from the outstanding protagonists but also from the involvement of real eyewitnesses and companions who were and are active in an advisory capacity for the musical. Ed Enoch, leader of the legendary "The Stamps Quartet," was on stage with Elvis at over 1,000 concerts from 1971 to 1977 and has supported producer Bernhard Kurz ("Stars in Concert") and tour organizer Oliver Forster (COFO) since the beginning of the musical with his insider knowledge. Also included is original film and photo material from Elvis' former tour manager and concert photographer, Ed Bonja.
