The Prince of Wales has paid tribute to the Welsh National Opera on its 70th anniversary.
A special concert was staged at Buckingham Palace on Thursday.
Since its inception in 1946, WNO has provided a stage to some of the world's biggest opera stars.
Two of them - Bryn Terfel and Rebecca Evans - were at the palace to perform alongside the orchestra and chorus of WNO.
They sang for the 300 invited guests, which included many of the sponsors and benefactors who help to fund the organisation.

Welsh National Opera provided the “wings” to start the careers of some of the world’s best-known singers.

That’s according to Bryn Terfel, the Welsh bass-baritone who began his own career at WNO and is now one of opera’s biggest stars.

He was speaking at a glamorous evening at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the company’s 70th anniversary.

Terfel, who performed at the palace in between commitments in Munich, was joined by soprano Rebecca Evans to entertain WNO’s patron the Prince of Wales and 300 guests.
He told me about the opportunities WNO had given him when he joined the company in the 1980s.
