Louis Hurst is a young bass baritone studying with Stuart MacIntyre and has been selected to participate in the 2015/2016 ENO Opera Works Programme. He studied at RNCM which was made possible by the generous support of Michael Oglesby, the Drapers Guild and the Musician’s Benevolent Fund. His love of music developed during his time at Manchester Grammar School where he sang as a treble chorister. Louis has had the privilege to work with such renowned conductors as Mark Elder, Richard Hickox, Martyn Brabbins, Stephen Wilkinson and Nicholas Kraemer, amongst others. His opera roles have been eclectic and unusual, from a Lion to a Greek King and even God.
