The misty Welsh mountains and a magnificent medieval cathedral are the backdrop to a special Christmas concert this year. World-famous baritone, Sir Bryn Terfel, is putting on a performance from Brecon Cathedral. The line-up includes classic Christmas carols and iconic folk tunes with a distinctly Welsh tone. The concert is being streamed online and is one of many star performances from operatic singers. It’s part of The Metropolitan Opera in New York’s first-ever series of pay-per-view recitals. The initiative is called ‘Met Stars Live in Concert’, a concept that came to life due to the current pandemic conditions forcing cultural sites around the globe to close.
