Ter­fel tickets sell out in less than an hour

Bangor Mail - - NEWS -

TICKETS to see opera su­per­star Bryn Ter­fel in his first ap­pear­ance at the the­atre named after him have sold out in less than an hour.

All 486 seats for Fe­bru­ary’s con­cert at Theatr Bryn Ter­fel at the Pon­tio Arts Cen­tre, Ban­gor, were snapped up after go­ing on sale last week.

Pon­tio staff have opened a wait­ing list in case any­one who bought a ticket can­not make the con­cert.

A spokes­woman said: “Peo­ple started gath­er­ing out­side the door at about 8am and were in good hu­mour wait­ing for the tickets to go on sale.

“Ev­ery­one who came along to Pon­tio to buy their tickets were able to do so and went away happy.”

Mem­bers of Sir Bryn’s of­fi­cial fan club, Y Ter­fe­li­aid, were among those w who got tickets.

One said: “I tried and failed to get a ticket for his last ap­pear­ance in Gwynedd – I was just a few min­utes too late get­ting to the ticket of­fice in Cric­ci­eth.

“I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to the con­cert even though it is four months away.”

The bass-bari­tone was due to ap­pear at Pon­tio at the Open­ing Gala in Oc­tob ber 2014,2014 but this per­for­mance was can­celled be­cause build­ing work on the the­atre was not com­plete.

Tickets for that show had sold out in just 15 min­utes.

Dur­ing the forth­com­ing con­cert, which will launch the Wales In­ter­na­tional Harp Festival IV, Sir Bryn and harpist Han­nah Stone will give the first per­for­mance of Osian El­lis’ Cy­cle of Welsh Folk Songs.

Past stu­dents from Canol­fan Gerdd Wil­liam Mathias, fi­nal­ists in the Urdd Bryn Ter­fel Schol­ar­ship, will be the sup­port­ing artists.

Sir Bryn will per­form at Theatr Bryn Ter­fel (be­low) in Fe­bru­ary
