On my radar: Bryn Terfel

Welsh opera star Bryn Terfel picks his cultural highlights of the moment, from Rhys Ifans to operatic Tudors

Bryn Terfel is a Welsh bass-baritone opera singer. Born in Pant Glas, Caernarfonshire, Terfel attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, graduating in 1989 with the Kathleen Ferrier Memorial award. He has since performed leading roles in Mozart, Puccini and Wagner at some of the most famous opera houses in the world. In 1996 he won the Royal Philharmonic Society award for singer of the year and he became the second recipient of the Queen's medal for music in 2006. His new album Homeward Bound, recorded in Salt Lake City with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, is out now.

Actor: Rhys Ifans

I was at Guildhall with him and he has done some magnificent work since he left. He stole the show in Notting Hill and as Howard Marks in Mr Nice (left). Now he's in the latest Spider-Man movies.
