Alfie Boe Impromptu "Nessun Dorma"

For a sample of Alfie Boe's glorious operatic tenor, here is a video posted by Matt Lucas. They portayed the roles of Jean Valjean and Thenardier in the recent 25th Anniversary Concert at the O2 arena. Good fun.

As an added treat is here is a clip of Boe performing "Che Gelida Manina" from the English National Opera's production of 'La Boheme'. This means the number is performed in English rather than in Italian and shows the skill of his performance when he metered his voice to one suited for musical theatre for the 'Les Mis' concert.

Jan 2011 Update: U.S. / American / NTSC DVD & Blu-Ray release of Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert Available.
