|The creation of new roles in 20th century operas and bringing new perspective to standard operatic heroines has been the hallmark of this artist’s career. Ruby Hinds garnered critical acclaim as a “graceful and seductive Venus” in her debut performance of Venus in Wagner’s Tannhauser for the Hawaii Opera Theatre in Honolulu. Ms. Hinds has been called an “Amneris of distinction” in Verdi’s Aida at the Redlands Bowl and characterized as a “powerful Adalgisa” in Kentucky Opera’s production of Bellini’s Norma.
Her newest project is her stunning one-woman multi-media show entitled See There in the Distance, which chronicles the life and accomplishments of legendary contralto Marian Anderson.Her most recent triumph as Marian Anderson in See There in the Distance took place at the Beverly Hills Playhouse for Camelot Artists.
Some of the foremost composers, directors, conductors and choreographers of the 20th century have been a part of Ms. Hinds’ career. She made her European debut in the world premier of Robert Wilson and Philip Glass’ CIVIL WARS for the Rome Opera.
She made her New York Philharmonic debut on the orchestra’s chamber series and two days later, her National Symphony debut at the Kennedy Center in Washington with Maestro Frühbeck de Burgos conducting. Ruby Hinds has also appeared at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center, New York and for the Spoleto Festival both in Charleston S.C. and in Spoleto, Italy.
