If you wondered where Bryn is; he is enjoying Malmö rehearsing before the European tour.
But does he need the west? Sunny and 24 - 27 in Malmö.

Google TRANSLATE:

The born seducer

World star Bryn Terfel has to wait an hour for the performance. Then he pulls the spectators off the seats in the Faust Opera - again.

Such a devil you like to meet. Looks like a lumberjack from the Welsh woods, has the mischief on his neck and fills the opera house with his powerful dark voice to the last corner. The 52-year-old farmer's son Bryn Terfel is valued as a charismatic bass baritone worldwide. Whether as Falstaff or Wotan, Don Giovanni or Boris Godunow: the gallery of his characters is long. He loves not only opera, but also musicals, song recitals, songs of his homeland. The music seems like a huge lake to him, he told the Saxon newspaper at his first Dresden guest performance in 2007. "You can catch a lot of different fish in it, with time you can tell which ones taste the best."

A special soft spot Bryn Terfel has for rogue roles, such as the nasty police chief Scarpia in Puccini's "Tosca". To play evil, he is visibly pleased. The audience could convince themselves of this on Friday in the Semperoper. In the concert performance of the dramatic legend "La Damnation de Faust" by Hector Berlioz, Terfel designs the Mephisto with verve and wit. The French-speaking opera is known in German as "Faust's damnation".

Great praise for the MDR Radio Choir. Whether in the farmer's dance, the soldier and student songs or in the choir of hell and heavenly spirits: He has grown to the challenges sovereign. Not self-evident, because only far after the break could the choir perform in full force. On the way to Dresden, the bus was in heavy thunderstorms and had to interrupt the journey. With taxis, the ladies and gentlemen traveled gradually. The performance started one hour late. The audience's appreciation goes to the choir, who saved this evening with his efforts.

In the play, which deals freely with Goethe's original, Mephisto wants to bring the gloomy fist into real life. Not without ulterior motive. In the end Faust should sell him the soul. Bryn Terfel pulls as cunning devil all registers, promises Faust the blue from heaven. At first he tries his luck, leads him into a drinking society, sings with mocking fervor: "Once upon a time there was a king who had a big flea." But he does not end up with the fledgling Doctor Faust. So Mephisto sets the sturgeon to sleep and pretends to him the picture of the young Margaret. The magic works, Faust wants the beautiful.

Terfel smiles diabolically, rubs his hands contentedly: "Soon he is mine!" The story goes on. Margaret and Faust sing about the dizziness of bliss. Gretchen's mother swallows the deadly sleeping draft, the daughter first goes into the dungeon, then into heaven and fist into hell. "The winner is me!" Proclaims Mephisto. The same applies to the great soloist Bryn Terfel. He is the center of power of the performance. The voice, sometime dark and rough as rock, sometimes whispering and tender as pollen. The audience pulls it from the seats, for minutes it applauds the world star from Wales. But not only he is in jubilation, he involves the entire ensemble.

Sophie Koch, the French mezzo-soprano, plays with metal silver sound Goethe's ballad of the "King in Thule". She is the deeply in love and transfigured Margarete, mastering the heights of this game. The American tenor Paul Groves tells with melancholy tones of his joys and torments, but it has not easy on the side of Koch and Terfel. The Swedish Malmö Symphony Orchestra conducted by the experienced French conductor Marc Soustrot explores the richness of Berlioz's romantic composition. Highlights: the sweeping Hungarian march and the spherical sounds of the finale.

Google Translate:
......
Sir Bryn Terfel takes the show

And then we had to look at the star of the evening. The Briton bas-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel was primarily outperformed as the publisher, but also wanted to loose the favorite roles without any problems. The Welshman perfectly perceived how much he drove dramatically into this orchestral object. Unless he was overwhelmed in his role, he had a magistral mafiistotish, and he did not know all the doctor Faust, but also to pay the public. .....

Terfel is so affectionate singer that he and all other soloists have added to a higher level. As before, Groves were the best sticks to dinner. That had to be done with a fantastic synergy between both zangers. The controversy between the unjust Fist and the depressed Méphisto was shocked by the duo. There are also Sophie Koch (Marguerite), who have the least of all sorts of surprises, her strongest performance before the story of Terfel in the trio "Allons il est trop tard". There, naturally, incredible shoes behind the duo Terfel-Groves.

...... And of course absolutely outstanding, the Welsh bass-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel acted in his parade role as Méphistophélès, but his facial expressions were already beyond the limits of the concert performance - you take off every sentence, and despite excellent diction of all soloists you did not need the French to be powerful ...
