"...Henk Opperman – one of the most captivating dancers I have had the privilege of watching – takes the lead as Elvis and is well supported by an excellent troupe of fantastic dancers. Following on from (mine and others’) rave reviews of his work as Freddy Mercury in Queen at the Ballet, Opperman once again thrills with his expressive dancing and cheeky attitude."
