"Bizet nearly killed me" is the striking opening sentence of this engaging autobiography written by English tenor, Alfie Boe, beginning just one of the many amusing and sometimes, moving, stories of Alfie's life so far, told as he traces his journey from his humble beginnings in Fleetwood, England, to fame on the world singing stage. Alfie's story is, like any life, a story of ups and downs, although many will be surprised at just how grim some aspects of Alfie's journey have been. From being bossed around by the toffs at the Royal Opera House, to sleeping on a li-lo in a corridor in New York, life has not always been a bed of roses for England's favourite tenor. Amusing also, are the stories from behind the scenes of performances gone wrong, relationships established and challenges overcome.
Alfie has bravely shared some of the most poignant episodes of his life, from the loss of his father, to falling in love, the birth of his children and to finally establishing himself as a singing sensation admired throughout the world. One of the book's major achievements, however, is that Alfie's voice, even filtered through ghost writer, Alex Godfrey, remains authentically his, in tone, syntax and semantics. Reading this book makes you feel as if you have just had a visit from Alfie Boe. Sit down, have a cuppa, and enjoy it.
