What Elvis needs is an opera

But just try to find the emotional equivalent of that in the Elvis songbook. Conveying the ruined grandeur of the poor boy from Mississippi who changed the world then lost his soul and died on the lav is a tough call for something as cheerful sounding as "Elvis: The Musical". This guy, you begin to suspect, requires nothing less than an original operatic score to himself.

In the absence of that, maybe, just maybe, This is Elvis: Viva Las Vegas! has the answer. This new musical, which is currently touring the country before - demand permitting - transferring to the West End in the summer, looks closely at the only remotely happy phase of Elvis's later career.
