Emily Hindrichs

"Handel wrote the opera for three of the greatest singers of his time, and a set that requires singers to advance to the footlights if they are to be seen at all gives every chance for vocal display. Here, Karlsruhe has done several things very right...As his faithful Constanza, ensemble member Emily Hindrichs makes a fine match, with just the translucent, otherworldly sweetness the part demands."

Emily Hindrichs studied at the University of Southern Mississippi, the University of Exeter and the New England Conservatory and completed her musical education as a member of Seattle Opera Young Artists Program. The American soprano is winner of the Sullivan Foundation Award, the second prize winner of the Washington International Competition and first prize winner of the Les Azuriales Opera Competition.

From 2013 to 2015 she was ensemble member of the Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe, where she performed roles such as Oscar (Un ballo in maschera), Le Feu (L'enfant er les sortilèges), the title role in Strawinsky’s Le RossignolCostanza (Riccardo Primo) and Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier). With her signature role Königin der Nacht she already was guest at Oper Frankfurt, Aalto-Musiktheater Essen, English National Opera, Seattle Opera, Chicago Opera Theatre, and New Orleans Opera. Her repertoire also include roles like Micaela (Carmen), Anne Trulove (The Rake’s Progress) and Konstanze (Die Entführung aus dem Serail), but also less famous parts, like Trio Soprano in Bernstein's 'Trouble in Tahiti'. With the beginning of season 2015/16, she is a member of the ensemble of the Oper Köln, where she is singing amongst others Musetta, Olympia (Les contes d'Hoffmann), Nannetta (Falstaff), Teresa (Benvenuto Cellini), Lucia di Lammermoor and Adela in the world premiere of 'Tree of Codes'. Last season, she made her debuts as Cunégonde (Candide), as Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro) and in the world premiere of Johannes Maria Staud's 'Die Antilope'. With her debuts as Marie (Die Soldaten) and Elisetta (Il Matrimonio segreto) in 2017/18 she can enlarge her already various repertoire.

As a popular concert and recital artist, she sang with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, with the International Bachakademie Stuttgart under Helmuth Rilling, with the American Symphony Orchestra in the Carnegie Hall and with the Seattle Symphony. In autumn 2013 she made her London concert debut at the Barbican Centre, singing Reinhold Glière’s 'Concerto for Coloratura Soprano'.
