Links for articles about Bryn in the Chinese press.

The journalist in ChinaDaily is not quite familiar with European geography or Wagner. The UBS Verbier Festival Orchestra is based in Switzerland, and Bryn singing "Overture to the Flying Dutchman" will certainly be a special experience.

Well that rather put Bryn in his place didn't it!!

BEIJING, Nov. 17 -- The world's best baritone is coming to town. He is not a household name, such as Pavarotti, Domingo or the diva Sarah Brightman. However, he is huge in today's operatic scene.

Obviously, he still has a way to go to make it to the dizzy heights of a career such as operatic diva Sarah Brightman.
Keep working on it, Bryn!

Razz Razz Thanks, Bjorg. I love to start the day laughing! By his expression, Bryn must have read the articles before he posed for that picture!

Thanks for the link Bjorg.
I do feel these Chinese sites lose something in translation as they are full of so many inaccuracies and rather comic little comments. I love being told that Jessie Norman and Kathleen Battle are not baritones ( mind you, come to that, neither is Bryn).

Hi, Bjorg,

Thanks again for all the articles that you send us. I had to chuckle a bit when they mentioned Bryn's thick moustache. Also they mentioned he is 36. Bryn would love that! LOL!
