«"Not to be outdone, Elliott Carlton Hines, the baritone soloist, made a strong showing in the more active "Gebt mir meinen Jesum wieder!", with Jeremy Rhizor, the leader of Orchestra II, fiddling virtuosically but with fluid grace. Mr. Hines, too, had other terrific moments, especially in the work's cuminating aria, "Mache dich, mein Herze, rein."»
James Oestreich, New York Times, March 2014 (2017)
«"Auch der Christus von Elliott Carlton Hines strahlt Charisma aus: stimmlich wie optisch. Sein gut geführter Bassbariton hat den Balsam und die Kraft, über den ein Heilsbringer verfügen sollte – und wenn er auch keine typische Alte-Musik-Stimme hat, gelingt ihm die Quadratur des Kreises zwischen Bach und italienischem Stimmfach."»
Christiane Keckeis, DrehPunktKultur, March 2017 (2017)
«"An den Rändern hat die Aufführung manche überraschenden Meriten. Auffallend beispielsweise die Präsenz und baritonale Geschmeidigkeit von Elliott Carlton Hines in den kleinen Partien des Soldaten Morales und des Schmugglers Dancaïro."»

Bio


Baritone Elliott Carlton Hines will join the Opernstudio of Staatsoper Stuttgart beginning the 2018/2019 season, where he will be seen in Der Freischütz, Don Pasquale, Boito's Mefistofele, Iphigénie en Tauride, Der Schauspieldirektor (Junge Oper im Nord), and Ariadne auf Naxos.

Born in 1990 and a native of Houston, Texas, Hines is a 2014 graduate of The Juilliard School, and was a member of the ensemble at the Salzburger Landestheater for the 2017/2018 season, where he was seen as Spalanzani in The Tales of Hoffmann and Il Conte in Le Nozze di Figaro. He made his debut with Birmingham Opera Company, under the direction of Graham Vick, in Giorgio Battistelli's world premiere of Wake.  Hines' spectrum of work at the Landestheater as a member of the "Internationales Opernstudio Gerard Mortier" from 2015 to 2017 included Morales/Dancaïre in Carmen, Masetto in Don Giovanni, and Il Poeta in Il Turco in Italia. In the 2016-17 season, Hines performed the roles of Schaunard in La Bohème (under Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla) in the Haus für Mozart, as well as Sparbüchsen Bill in Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny at the Landestheater (under Adrian Kelly).

In the summer of 2016, Hines premiered the role of Man One in David Blake and Keith Warner’s new opera, Icarus, at the Cantiere Internazionale d’Arte Montepulciano under Roland Boer. As a master's student at The Juilliard School, Hines performed the roles of Farasmane in Händel’s Radamisto and Pasek in Janacek’s Cunning Little Vixen. 

In addition to opera, Hines has also sung the bass solos in Bach’s St. Matthew Passion (under Gary Thor Wedow) and Christmas Oratorio (at the Oregon Bach Festival), as well as the role of Lucifero in Handel’s La Resurrezione (under William Christie). Hines was also a Lied Stipendiat at the Heidelberger Frühling in both 2015 and 2016.  

Hines received his B.M. in Voice from Oberlin Conservatory, and has also worked as a Young Artist with Opera Theater of Saint Louis, Da Camera of Houston, and at the Internationale Meistersinger Akademie (IMA).  He was a 2017 Finalist at the EquiVoci Musicali Competition 'Salvatore Licitra' in Milan.
