We could be even closer to Carmen Jenkins than we feared.
Claims serial career-immolator Alfie Boe in a new Scotsman interview:
"They’ve used microphones in opera houses. The Royal Opera has but they’ll never admit it, English National Opera have too, but they’ll never admit it either because they’re too proud and too stupid."
“I think I’ve probably shot myself in the foot for a while with the opera world as far as roles are concerned,” he says. “No big houses are going to employ me after what I said on radio. I might be wrong but I’m not seeing any sign of it. I’d love to work for them again but I have an opinion.”
Alfie may not understand the difference between having an opinion and sharing one, but I don't think he's dishonest. What are the chances of the opera houses owning up?
