Alfie Boe - Storyteller at the Royal Albert Hall

Episode 1 of 1

The UK platinum-selling superstar and Tony-Award winner Alfie Boe brings his second television concert special to PBS, Alfie Boe - Storyteller at The Royal Albert Hall. Coming off his success in England with three Top Ten albums, two sold-out tours and over a million albums sold, Alfie Boe is poised to continue winning over US fans with Storyteller. The Huffington Post raved that Alfie and PBS are "a match made in heaven." Storyteller reinforces that sentiment and showcases Boe's ability to cross genres effortlessly in front of an audience spanning all ages. The concert features a full 19-piece band, and casts a wide net of selections from Alfie's repertoire, including tracks from the new album, Classical arias, and of course, his signature song "Bring Him Home", from his acclaimed turn as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables. Alfie Boe's story is what dreams are made of. Coming from humble beginnings as a working-class mechanic where he was discovered, he went on to become an acclaimed Broadway actor cast by the legendary, award-winning director Baz Luhrmann in his 2002 production of Puccini's La Boheme for which he won a Tony Award. He then was able to realize his dream as a recording artist, with three studio albums under his belt, collaborations with an array of A-list artists including Robert Plant, Queen, Alice Cooper, Renee Fleming and Nick Jonas among others, and his own autobiography published in the UK, "Alfie - My Story." Boe has already completed two successful U.S. tours, with additional dates in the works for early 2014. All-Music Guide describes Alfie as "one of the U.K.'s most technically gifted talents." Alfie Boe now comes to London's iconic Royal Albert Hall with his Storyteller Tour. Directed by Matt Askem, the special includes Roy Orbison's "It's Over," "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore," Elvis Presley's "It's Only Love" and "If I Can Dream," The Rolling Stones "Shine a Light" from the album Exile on Main Street and of course "Bring Him Home."
