David Hidden | Baritone

A Sydney local, David Hidden has been singing professionally for many years. After a brief hiatus he is excited to return to the concert platform for his first performance with River City Voices.


Graduating from the Sydney Conservatorium in 2011 his career started with Opera Australia’s touring arm, OzOpera. David greatly enjoys outreach and education projects. He ran workshops (WotOpera, Opera Express) and performed in education programs (Musica Viva, Sound Baroque) until 2016.


David has had a long relationship with Pinchgut opera performing a variety of small roles – notably in Apollo e Dafne (2021), and with Cantiallation, most recently in the concert version of Theodora this year. David regularly performs with Opera Australia in the extra chorus.


David has performed with a wide variety of small opera companies around Australia. Major operatic roles include, Aeneas (Dido and Aeneas), Guglielmo (Così fan Tutte), Dr Dulcamara (L'elisir d'amore), and Tonio (I Pagliacci). Highlights include Barry Kosky’s Saul for Adelaide Festival (2017) and the Weill’s Mahagonny Songspiel in the Spiegeltent



A versatile performer, David seeks out new and interesting pieces to perform and develop. In 2021 he performed in Blush Opera’s scathing satire Chop Chef, pre-recording three roles and appearing in the live show via projector. In 2020 David starred in the premiere of a new chamber opera by Ian Whitney, David Davis.


On the concert platform David has sung with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Vladimir Ashkenazy, with Bryn Terfel and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, with the Australia Ensemble, Sydney University Graduate Choir, Penrith Symphony, Willoughby Symphony and the Canberra Symphony. David has also appeared in concert and on stage with The Song Company.
