Under the guidance of conductor Lojze Krajnčan and in cooperation with theatre actor, singer, TV host and excellent imitator Klemen Slakonja, who graduated in theatre acting from the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television in Ljubljana and has been a member of the SNT Drama Ljubljana ensemble since 2010, Big Band RTV Slovenija has created a musical comedy of surprises called Music In Theatre – Theatre In Music.
We’ll hear some of Klemen Slakonja‘s biggest hits, parodies of popular songs that are featured on his YouTube channel – hits in which he mockingly imitates important world leaders and politicians (“Ruf mich Angela”, “Golden Dump (The Trump Hump)” and “Putin, Putout”) and Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek (“The Perverted Dance”).
In addition, Slakonja, as one of the most musically talented Slovenian actors, will also shine in vocally more demanding roles, for example the aria “Torna A Surriento”, last year’s winning Eurovision song “Amar Pelos Dois”, as Jan Plestenjak …
Big Band RTV Slovenija will be conducted by Lojze Krajnčan, the instigator of the project and the author of all orchestral cover versions. The evening will be spiced up by Klemen’s humour and theatrical approach.
Tickets on sale online and at Eventim sales outlets.
