One can only wonder just how much the BBC paid Bryn Terfel to sing - briefly - in the family festive offering Billionaire Boy. I hope he gets back to doing proper opera, full-time, soon.
However much Bryn was paid, it was likely rather less than Amazon handed over to the likes of Lang-Lang or Dudamel to appear in series two of the entertaining-even-if-inaccurate Mozart in the Jungle. It probably works mostly because of well-chosen, powerful excerpts from great music as much as anything. Apart from anything, they weren't making music, just cameos. The mind boggles.
