Where would opera be without its 'Bad Boys'? Scarpia, Iago, Mephistopheles, Satan himself? One of Wales' favourite sons, Bryn Terfyl, acclaimed Bass-Baritone, has just finished his tour in the UK and released his new Deutsche Grammophon album of this name, celebrating these infamous operatic characters.
The album includes the arias that made Grand Opera's villains notorious for their dastardly deeds like Mephistopheles'Golden Calf aria from Gounod's Faust and Sono Lo Spirito Che Nega from Boito's 'Mefistofele'.
So boys... why not take inspiration from Bryn's album and unleash your dark side with these more demonic, furious and dramatic arias?
It also includes other favourites like Kurt Weil's 'Mackie Messer's famous hit from 'The Threepenny Opera' (aka Bobby Darrin's 'Mack The Knife') and 'Udite, Udite, O Rustici' sung by Donnizetti's naughty Dottore Dulcamara in 'L'elisir D'Amore', which is coming soon to Your Accompanist...
