Arts Centre Melbourne, Hamer Hall
When Bryn Terfel sings, everyone stops to listen.
Whether he's singing show tunes, Wagner or traditional Welsh songs, he sells out theatres. “A born communicator who loves words as much as music,” (The Times), Terfel’s on-stage charm is legendary.
Experience it for yourself when the honey-voiced bass-baritone comes to Australia this November.
The superstar Welshman performs some of his favourite songs across many genres, with the backing of a magnificent orchestra. Once you’ve heard his interpretations, they’ll be your favourites too.
Terfel is one of the world’s best-selling classical artists, with 15 best-selling solo albums. He's won two Grammy Awards, four Classic Brit awards and a Gramophone Award. He won the Queen's Medal for Music in 2006, and 11 years later, received his knighthood at Buckingham Palace.
