Steven Humes

— Bass

“As Ramfis, the high priest, Steven Humes can chill blood, and does, just by invoking his victim's name in his commanding bass.”
Harriet Howard Heithaus - December 20, 2018 - Naples Daily News – Ramfis in ‘Aida’ at Opera Naples

“As Hunding Steven Humes stood with an impressive, one might almost say authoritative, bass on stage. With profound depth he took the space from the first note itself, and it was clear that his presence may not bode well even without knowledge of the plot.”
Isabella Steppan - September 23, 2014 - Bachtrack - Hunding in 'Die Walküre' at Musikverein Graz

“When Fafner, in ‘human’ form, appeared on stage having been stabbed by Nothung he looked like the Incredible Hulk - though not as green! I cannot immediately remember such a uniformly good cast for any Siegfried I have seen since those early ENO days. ...a sterling effort from Steven Humes’ suitably cavernous Fafner.”
Jim Pritchard - February 2, 2014 - Seen and Heard International - Fafner in 'Siegfried' at Grand Théâtre de Génève

“...and the Commendatore, for once formidably sung by Steven Humes.”
Christian Merlin - April 26, 2013 - Le Figaro - Commendatore in 'Don Giovanni' at Théâtre des Champs-Elysées
