The inspirational and colourful memoir of Michael Volpe, the general manager of Opera Holland Park. The son of Italian immigrants, he and his brothers were raised by his mother on a council estate in West London before he attended Woolverstone Hall, a prestigious state boarding school designed to give bright inner-city boys the opportunity of a public school education.
Set against a backdrop of nuns, hit men, ice cream vans, rugby, gangsters, strict school masters and music, Noisy at the Wrong Times is the vivid, funny and often moving story of a boy who was given a chance - though whether he took it or not is another question.
