ONE of the world’s best-known tenors will perform on a number of cruises setting sail from Southampton.
Singing sensation Alfie Boe, who has two platinum-selling albums to his name, will perform on the Azura during a four-night cruise break in May.
It is one of four short cruise breaks departing from and returning to Southampton which have been announced by P&O Cruises.
Boe first shot to fame in Baz Luhrmann’s La Boheme on Broadway, which he won a Tony for.
Subsequent roles included Jean Valjean in the 25th anniversary performance of Les Miserables at London’s O2 Arena and a performance at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace.
He will perform on the family-friendly cruise break to Belgium and Guernsey which will depart on May 26.
Prices start at £329 a person, with tickets on sale now. Prices start at £279 for a three-night cruise break to Belgium on Aurora, which leaves Southampton on October 11.
And two four-night breaks to Amsterdam and Belgium will be on board the Oriana on November 6 and December 13.
Prices start at £299 and £349 respectively.

“He’s a big name British act who has performed to huge crowds at the O2 Arena, Royal Albert Hall and Buckingham Palace.
“This will be a very special and intimate performance, which passengers of all ages can enjoy, for no extra charge other than the price of the cruise.
“These short break cruises are a great alternative to a hotel/city break and perfect for those who have never cruised before.
“Explore a city with a day of sightseeing and shopping, then enjoy everything the ship has to offer – from fine dining, pampering in the spa, cocktails in the bars, dancing in the clubs, or a flutter in the casino.”
