By Francisco Salazar

Bryn Terfel will continue the Metropolitan Opera’s “Met Stars Live in Concert” series on Dec. 12, 2020.

The event, which will begin at 1:00 p.m. ET, will feature the superstar live from the historic Brecon Cathedral in his native Wales.

The program will feature traditional holiday favorites such as “Silent Night,” “O Holy Night,” and “O Come All Ye Faithful.” The program will also include variations on “O Tannenbaum” for harp, Lerner and Loewe’s “Little Prince,” and “O du, mein holder Abendstern” from Wagner’s “Tannhäuser.” Terfel will be joined by two rising Welsh singers, soprano Natalya Romaniw and tenor Trystan Llŷr Griffiths, as well as by harpist Hannah Stone, pianist Jeff Howard, and the Welsh traditional folk group Calan.

The recital will be streamed live via the Met website and will then be available on-demand for 14 days.

Terfel’s performance will be followed by the Met Stars Live in Concert New Year’s Eve Gala featuring sopranos Angel Blue and Pretty Yende and tenors Javier Camarena and Matthew Polenzani. The series will also feature Sondra Radvanovsky, Piotr Beczała, Anna Netrebko, and Sonya Yoncheva.
