Bryn Terfel was born in Pant Glas, Caernarfonshire, North Wales. He is a Welsh bass-baritone opera and concert singer. He was initially associated with the roles of Mozart, particularly Figaro and Don Giovanni, but has subsequently shifted his attention to heavier roles, especially those by Wagner. After winning numerous competitions for his singing, he moved to London in 1984 and entered the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where he studied under Rudolf Piernay. He graduated in 1989, winning both the Kathleen Ferrier Memorial Award and the Gold Medal. The same year he came second behind Dmitri Hvorostovsky in the Cardiff BBC Singer of the World Competition, but won the Lieder Prize. In 2009 Terfel sang Scarpia and the Dutchman for the Royal Opera House. In September 2011 Terfel joined Andrea Bocelli in his concert at the great lawn of Central Park, New York, performing for over 70,000 people. In December 2011, he opened the season in La Scala as Leporello in Don Giovanni.
