Even the average operatic male – tenor, baritone, or bass, gets to play a knight at least once, onstage. Very few ever get to play one in real life. Now though, the legendary Welsh base-baritone, Bryn Terfel Jones, is just that – a knight. He’s also the king of the gods – Wotan. In 1989, he finished 2nd to our favorite baritone in the Cardiff Singer of the World contest. He also is passionate about – golf.
Sir Bryn does quite a bit of charitable work. He’s passionate about sports, and – golf. It is only appropriate that a man who comes from a land which produces singers should be one of the greatest operatic voices in the world.
