Alfie Boe – Franz LehÍr: Love was a Dream CD

 

Alfie studied at the Royal College of Music, the National Opera Studio and was a member or the Vilar Young Artists Programme at the Royal Opera House, London. He has performed Rodolfo at Glyndebourne, English National Opera and in Baz Luhrmann’s production of La Boheme on Broadway, for which he won a Tony Award. Other operatic roles include Alfredo, Tamino, Don Ottavio, Ferrando, Lysander, The Italian Tenor, the title role in Albert Herring, Caliph in Kismet and Camille du Rosillon inThe Merry Widow at opera houses including ENO, WNO, Glyndebourne, Opera National du Rhin, Strasbourg and La Monnaie, Brussels.

It is therefore fitting that he is returning to his operetta heritage by exploring his love of LehÍr for his fourth solo recording. In September 2006 Alfie released his eponymous first album for Classic FM which inspired such comments as, “Alfie Boe is a stunning discovery who could be the best tenor of his generation” (Observer). Then followed two albums with EMI Classics, Onward and La Passione – a collection of Neapolitan songs and arias for which he was nominated for Best Album and Best Male at the 2008 Classical BRIT Awards.
