Sting to perform at Bryn Terfel celebration concert in London on October 20th...

June 02, 2015

One of the world's most sought after voices, Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel, will celebrate his 50th birthday with a special one-off concert at the Royal Albert Hall.

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 thrilled to be celebrating my 50th birthday at the Royal Albert Hall, a venue that has held such rich memories for me throughout my career. This special concert will be a celebration of my favourite music, from Mozart to Sondheim, from Wagner to Rodgers & Hammerstein – and hopefully with a few surprises in between. Please join me and help me celebrate my birthday in style!' - Bryn Terfel

Sting will be among the special guests joining Bryn Terfel on stage for a one-off concert at the Royal Albert Hall to celebrate the opera star’s 50th birthday. The former Police frontman is one of several performers from the worlds of opera, classical, musical theatre, traditional music and rock who will share the stage with Terfel as he marks his milestone with a programme from Wagner arias to Welsh hymns and show tunes. Also joining him are sopranos Danielle de Niese and Rebecca Evans, harpists Catrin Finch and Hannah Stone, musical theatre star Daniel Evans, and trumpet soloist Alison Balsom, who headlined the Hall with a solo recital last October.

Tickets for the 20 October show are available from the Royal Albert Hall.

Hearing the songs from “The Last Ship” a few months after it closed was like meeting up with old friends. The title song is so catchy you can’t get it out of your head. Same for the great stomping “What Have You Got?” (not the real title, but that’s what I call it). The lush ballads are just gorgeous - from “What Say You Meg” to “The Night the Pugilist Learned How to Dance.”
