From car mechanic to internationally loved opera, musical, and
recording star: the story of Alfie Boe
Alfie Boe is the first official bad boy of opera: a musical superstar
celebrated not only in Britain but worldwide. This is the story of his life—the
ups and the downs, from finding fame to losing his father—and, essentially, of
his love affair with music.
Raised in Lancashire, the youngest of nine children and with a father who
played opera at home, Alfie’s story is not typical for a musical star. His dreams
of singing were ever going to be only dreams, until fate intervened in the form
of a stranger. He was training as a car mechanic when a customer overheard him
singing and told him about a London audition. Alfie tried out, got the part,
and has never looked back.
This is the tale of how Alfie went from car mechanic to the UK’s most
popular and well-known opera star, lauded by Baz Luhrman, Cameron Macintosh,
and Michael Parkinson as the best tenor we’ve produced in a generation.
Now, for the first
time, he has granted his millions of fans an intimate glimpse into the life of
the man they adore. Download and start listening now!
