Book Description

Dec 2002
Frank, entertaining autobiography of one of the best-known and respected of G&S operatic tenors, who, at 89, is still very much in demand. Peep behind the curtains into the life of one of the best-known and respected of operatic tenors. Meet the stars of Gilbert & Sullivan and the D'Oyly Carte, experience the backstage drama of a Royal Variety Performance, laugh at the stories and mishaps of a theatrical life. Many thousands of people know Thomas Round the tenor, and now you can get to know Thomas Round the man, in this frank and entertaining account. It soon becomes obvious that this most accomplished of performers is also the most modest of men, and it is impossible not to warm to him. Tom has had a very eventful 87 years. He is still in demand and remains passionate about his art, although he believes that, `At best he's only a monkey shav'd'!

Product Description


`I expect there are few people today who at the age of 87 can still dance the hornpipe and dominate a stage but the remarkable operatic tenor Thomas Round is one of them. `A Wand'ring Minstrel, I' is a thoroughly entertaining insight into the colourful and well-travelled life of one of the best-known and respected British songbirds.' Newark Advertiser

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful life! 9 Feb 2010
Tom Round writes a lovely down to earth account of his incredible life. He shows just how a young man with a vision to sing could fulfill his dream and entertain so many. To cap it all he remains active to this day, at the ripe age of 94, and retains his modest and unassuming persona, despite being regularly praised for his beautiful voice.
