Since leaving Oxford University, where he was a choral scholar at New College with a degree in music, Benjamin Hulett has worked with many of Britain's leading choirs and orchestras. He is much in demand as an interpreter of music across a wide range of genres and has been hailed by the national press as one of the most promising young tenors of today.
His recent concerts have included Das Paradies und die Peri with Sir Roger Norrington at the Edinburgh Festival, Haydn's Creation with both Pinnock and Haim, Missa Solemnis with Herreweghe and Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings with Christopher Hogwood, and he has also appeared with Sir Andrew Davis, Harry Bicket, Fabio Biondi and regularly on tour with Philippe Herreweghe. As a soloist with the Hamburgische Staatsoper his roles have included Flute (A Midsummer Night’s Dream), Jaquino (Fidelio), the Four Servants (Les Contes d’Hoffmann), Tamino (Die Zauberflöte), Ferrando (Cosi fan tutte) and Narraboth (Salome). He made his debuts with the Bavarian State Opera as Oronte, Opera North as Peter Quint (The Turn of the Screw), for the Salzburg Festival in Elektra, at the Theater an der Wien in the world premiere of Johannes Kalitzke's Die Besessenen, with the Deutsche Staatsoper, Berlin in Henze's Phaedra, and the Baden-Baden Festival in Salome.
Recent highlights include a return to the Baden-Baden Festival, his debut for the Salzburg Mozartwoche with the title role of J.C. Bach's Lucio Silla, and Tamino in a concert performance of Die Zauberflöte with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and Sir Simon Rattle. Forthcoming engagements include his debuts and subsequent returns to the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Welsh National Opera and Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Bernstein’s A Quiet Place under Nagano in Berlin, and his first full recital at Wigmore Hall.
