Having first met ten years ago performing together in Kismet at the London Coliseum, the stars became lifelong friends. That same year, Michael Ball made history as the first musical theatre star to be given a solo concert at the Royal Albert Hall's BBC Proms, and asked Alfie Boe to join him to perform at the classical music festival.  Their instant camaraderie and professional mutual admiration made for the perfect pairing and, to the delight of their hundreds of thousands of fans across the globe, came to fruition when they released Together.  The album’s success is a testament to the popularity and talent of the UK’s finest voices.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear two of the greatest voices in the world share the success of their smash-hit album, Together.

BIOGRAPHIES

Michael Ball has won critical and public acclaim over the last 25 years with his dynamic, award-winning lead roles in the West End and on Broadway. He is a double Olivier Award winner, multi-platinum recording artist, top-selling live concert performer, and a hugely popular radio and TV presenter who’s made box-office history. Michael’s many West End credits include originating the role of Marius (Les Miserables), Giorgio (Stephen Sondheim’s Passion), Raoul (The Phantom of the Opera), Alex (Aspects of Love, West End and Broadway), Caractacus Potts (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), Count Fosco (Woman In White, West End and Broadway), Edna Turnblad (Hairspray, West End and on tour) for which he won the 2008 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor In A Musical, and Sweeney Todd (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Chichester and West End).

Alfie Boe’s exceptional voice has made him Britain’s most popular and biggest-selling tenor. The Tony Award winner has conquered the world’s greatest opera stages and arenas, led the cast of Les Misérables for nearly a year, stole the show at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace, and performed at the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle. Boe is a fan of both classical music and classic rock – in 2015 he collaborated with one of his heroes,Pete Townshend, on Classic Quadrophenia – the orchestral version of The Who’s seminal album. He was chosen by Townshend to perform the lead role of young mod Jimmy, thrilling audiences at the Royal Albert Hall in London and in Vienna, with more dates to come. Always striving to bring good music to different audiences, Boe has performed three sold-out tours for hundreds of thousands of fans across the UK, and has notched up four Top 10 albums, selling in excess of 1.5 million copies in the UK.
