Alfie Boe

One of the U.K.'s most technically gifted classical crossover talents, award-winning tenor Alfie Boe grew up in Blackpool, England, listening to his father's opera records, including performances by Richard Tauber and Puccini's La Boheme. As a young adult, Boe sang while he was painting and polishing cars in a local automobile factory; he was overheard by a client who suggested Boe should audition for London's D'Oyly Carte Opera Company. Boe tried out for the company with Tauber's Dein Ist Mein Ganzes Herz and won a role in the chorus, touring and performing Gilbert & Sullivan works. When the tour finished, Boe won a scholarship to the Royal College of Music, attended the National Opera Studio, and then joined the Royal Opera House's Villar Young Artists Program. He was participating in the program when director Baz Lurhmann discovered him and cast him as one of the leads in Lurhmann's Broadway production of La Boheme, for which Boe won a Tony Award. He signed to the Classic FM Presents label in 2006 and issued his debut album, Classic FM Presents Alfie Boe, that year; it peaked at number three on the U.K. classical chart. Late in 2006, Boe moved to EMI Classics and the following spring his second album, Onward, arrived. Boe explored his love of folk music with La Passione, a collection of Italian folk songs that was released in 2007. Performances in Kismet, Richard Strauss' Elektra, La Traviata, and other operas ensured that his roots as a stage performer were well balanced with his recording career. In 2010, Boe took on the role as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables at the O2 Arena, London to commemorate the show’s 25th anniversary. He also continued this role throughout 2011 with performances as Valjean at the Queen Theatre in London. During the latter part of the year, he performed at the Last Night of the Proms and began his nationwide concert tour entitled “Alfie Boe ‘Bring Him Home UK Concert Tour’. 2012 was packed with more concert performances, including the Diamond Jubilee Concert for Elizabeth II which saw him sing with American soprano Renee Fleming. He also released the studio album Storyteller in December 2012. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

My favorite Val Jean.
Have seen him in concert 3 times and am headed to a 4th soon. He is one of the most gifted singers of our time. He has such a unique way of connecting with the audience and touching the soul. He is as kind in person as he is brilliant on stage....
He is so amazing!

I missed the concert this year because of Hurricane Sandy, he cancelled show in Pittsburgh, I think his voice is just wonderful. I listen to the Les Miserable 25th anniversary soundtrack just about every day.
I went to a concert of Boe's last night and he has been with me all day. I have told friends and feel this man's manner and voice speaks to me in a unique way. Everything from Elvis to Pucinni..... . D o e s he know what an inspiring voice, energy and variety he possesses. I'm not a young admiring chick. I am 78 years old and I dance to him.
