Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel, one of the world's most sought after voices, celebrates his 50th birthday with a special one-off concert. He will mark this milestone with a programme from Wagner arias to Welsh hymns and show tunes.
The Grammy Award-winning singer first became known for his portrayals of Mozart's Figaro and Verdi's Falstaff, while in recent years he has been acclaimed for his performances of the Wagner roles of Wotan, Hans Sachs and Der Fliegende Höllander. His recordings have earned him two Grammy Awards and four Classical Brit Awards, and he is also the recipient of The Queen's Medal for Music.
'I'm so pleased to be able to announce such an exciting line-up for my birthday concert in October. This show is all about the music that means the most to me, and the chance to perform it alongside so many talented friends is a wonderful opportunity. Sting is one of the outstanding songwriters and musicians of his generation, and we have something extra-special planned for this unique, once-in-a-lifetime show.' Bryn Terfel
