Most widely held works by Bryn Terfel
Salome by Richard Strauss( )

49 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance presents the great Leonie Rysanek in one of her most memorable roles--the teenage Judean princess Salome. Obsessed with the prophet Jochanaan, the Biblical John the Baptist (Norman Bailey), she skillfully manipulates her lecherous stepfather Herod (Ragnar Ulfung) until he has no choice but to have the holy man killed for spurning the princess's advances. The legendary Astrid Varnay is Salome's mother, Herodias. Highlights of the score include the Dance of the Seven Veils and Salome's final monologue, one of the supreme dramatic achievements in all of opera
Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

43 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gerald Finley is the amoral but charismatic Don Giovanni, a man who is fascinated by every woman and whose seductions are legendary. He's also a murderer and a rapist, and this time he has finally gone too far. The ebullient Bryn Terfel is Giovanni's sidekick and servant, Leporello, who keeps the Don's book of conquests up to date and aids him in his shenanigans. Marina Rebeka and Ellie Dehn also star as Donna Anna and Donna Elvira, women Giovanni has crossed and who now want vengeance. Matthew Polenzani is the understanding Don Ottavio, and Isabel Leonard is Zerlina, the peasant girl who keeps slipping out of the Don's grasp at the last minute. It's up to James Morris as the Commendatore to bring Don Giovanni to justice from beyond the grave. Andrew Davis conducts

Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

This great comedy demands a magnificent cast and a superb conductor, who can bring out all the sparkling colors of Verdi's last score, while allowing the singers to project the nuances of their characters. James Levine not only meets the challenge, he also conveys his affection for this unique masterpiece. Bryn Terfel is Shakespeare's fat knight, determined to woo both Alice Ford (Marina Mescheriakova) and Meg Page (Susanne Mentzer) even though they are both already married. But he's no match for the scheming Stephanie Blythe (Dame Quickly). With Dwayne Croft as the outraged Ford
