    Bruce Dargavel was renowned as being the world's best bass baritone. He has performed in opera houses all over the world and his singing voice was used in the film 'The Tales of Hoffman'.

    Bruce was my grandfather. We are all very proud of his achievements from a young tinplate worker to the stage of Covent Garden. We are so lucky to still be able to hear his beautiful voice on his recordings. He was also a lovely grandpa!

    Just purchased a CD of the soundtrack of the film the tales of hoffmann featuring Bruce Dargavel. Has anyone any other recordings of this fine bass baritone? Is it possible to get a DVD of the film which can be played on region 2 DVD players?
