Emily Hindrichs received her Doctor of Musical Arts in Performance from the New England Conservatory of Music in 2009, and the Master of Arts in Musicology from the University of Exeter in 2002. She is editor of the Aldeburgh Les mamelles de Tirésias, which unites Benjamin Britten’s historic two-piano arrangement and the Pears-Cranko-Graham English libretto in a performance-ready edition. This edition was performed at Aldeburgh in October 2012, receiving its first showing since 1958. Following its US premier with Vespertine Opera Theater, further performances are scheduled at the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence in 2013 and the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in 2014.
With operatic roles ranging from her signature Queen of the Night to the twentieth-century heroines of Stravinsky and Strauss, and a passion for the art songs of Samuel Barber and Francis Poulenc, Hindrichs, an alumna of the Seattle Opera Young Artist Program, has been lauded for her intelligent and exciting performances at English National Opera, Oper Frankfurt, Seattle Opera, Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theatre, and Lincoln Center. The 2012-2013 season finds her making debuts at Chicago Opera Theater and the Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe, and in recital at the Aldeburgh Music Britten weekend.
