Notes & Reviews:

'Bad Boys' is a line up of some of the most unscrupulous, cynical, devious, roguish musical villains of the opera stage. Bryn Terfel calls them the "demonic misfits and malcontents of this wonderful music." Internationally acclaimed star Bryn Terfel, a gentle man in real life, recruits a gang of "bad boy" characters from opera and musicals to electrify us with tunes from the sinister side of the bass clef. Thoroughly convincing as villains you would not want to meet alone in the dark, Bryn Terfel wields a full, wide ranging bass-baritone ever in service to dramatic instincts rare in any era. No singer morphs from Don Giovanni to "Mack the Knife" to Sweeney Todd with Terfel's devilish ease - Bad Boys is a delightful box of mixed musical bonbons.
