Christopher used to write for Private Eye and has written for The Observer, Under The Influence, BBC Music Magazine, Opera and Choir & Organ as well as a fortnightly column for Sinfini and a monthly column for Opernwelt. 


He has published three books about the realities of life as a professional opera singer. First came “Who’s My Bottom?” in 2011, and ‘Scraping The Bottom’ was released in 2013. The third, “Bottom Feeder”, has just been published, and all three books are available in one volume: “The Bumper Book of Bottoms”. Another short book, ‘Lexibography’ has very little to do with opera. Find out more here.
