Bryn Terfel Helps Welsh National Opera Win Award

Bryn Terfel as Hans Sachs in WNO's Meistersinger
"A MAJOR Wagner production starring Bryn Terfel in the leading role has scooped an international arts award for Welsh National Opera. The Cardiff-based company has won the opera category of the South Bank Sky Arts Awards for Die Meistersinger Von Nurnberg. Directed by Richard Jones, it premiered at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay last summer, with Terfel singing Hans Sachs, the role which he has described as the 'pinnacle' of his career. Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg beat off competition from English National Opera’s A Dog’s Heart and Glyndebourne’s Billy Budd to win the latest award." [Source]
