…in Korean! This was his one off appearance in Seoul, Korea and he sang a varied programme of classical, opera and musical theatre – and one song in Korean. I understand the song is traditional but I have no idea what they are singing about! The audience, soprano and conductor all seem very impressed though and his pronunciation seems, to my untutored ear) in time with the soprano:
The second song is one of my favourites from Alfie’s operatic repertoire, Brindisi from La Traviata. Alfie looks as if he is enjoying this rare venture into operatic waters although I think he may have wanted to dance at one point and the dress had other ideas!

I’ve seen this clip before . It is a beautiful song ( wish I knew the words) . Alfie can sing everything it seems with such emotion you can almost imagine a love song between two who are kept apart by some circumstance beyond their control. He just gives me goosebumps and I don’t know what he is saying. (Sigh).
What a gem.
Korea, Opera, crinoline ladies do not normally fall into my focus but when mounded together with Alfie’s voice resonating all around it suddenly becomes the perfect cocktail.
I so enjoyed that and thank you for ousting it for us all to enjoy.
