"A born communicator who loves words as much as music, he has reached out to audiences way beyond the rarefied temples of opera house and recital hall . . ." - The Times (London)
The RTÉ Concert Orchestra is delighted to welcome the sensational bass-baritone Bryn Terfel, for one powerful performance as part of the Signature Series 2013.
One of the most sought after international voices, Terfel has won two Grammy Awards, four Classical Brit Awards and Her Majesty the Queen's medal for Music.
With a masterfully rich, resonant voice and an ability to bring abundant personal charisma and enthusiasm to his performances (in roles as varied as Figaro and Wotan), he has left a trail of standing ovations from the Metropolitan Opera to Sydney Opera House.
Don't miss this operatic king accompanied by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.
