Peter Van Hulle

Snout: A Midsummer Night’s Dream / English National Opera

"Peter van Hulle also gave a memorable whisky-swilling performance as Tom Snout."

Daily Express


Kudryash: Katya Kabanova / Longborough Festival Opera

“Kudryash is a reassuring figure with his simple, scientific view of life; but he’s a mere child in the presence of these dark passions, unlit by electricity. Interestingly, the rational man knows folksongs and sings them sweetly…”

The Arts Desk


“…a warm portrayal by Peter van Hulle.”



Monostatos: The Magic Flute / Scottish Opera

"...further down, the cast sounded first-rate: Peter van Hulle, playing Monostatos as a dastardly Regency Sir Jasper..."

The Telegraph


Don Basilio: The Marriage of Figaro / English Touring Opera

“Peter van Hulle was a refreshingly straight Basilio.”



Goro: Madama Butterfly / Scottish Opera

“…as Goro, Peter van Hulle was excellent.”

The Observer


Charlie Despard: The Young Man with the Carnation / The Opera Group

“All four principals worked hard, but the central role of Charlie Despard was the only one with much meat on it. Peter Van Hulle responded with a a totally committed, boldly-sung account that made up for much of the nebulousness of the piece.”



Valzacchi: Der Rosenkavalier / Welsh National Opera

“Peter Van Hulle’s (Valzacchi) yellow-press journalist is suitably vile…”

The Critics’ Circle


“Peter Van Hulle was nicely insinuating as Valzacchi, his peppery tenor full of character.”



“Peter Van Hulle and Madeleine Shaw as the intriguers were a delightfully over the top couple.”

Opera Today


Eisenstein: Die Fledermaus / West Green Opera

“Peter Van Hulle is an excellent Eisenstein.”

Music OMH


“An energetic Eisenstein, Peter Van Hulle sings with definition and point.”


The Stage


Bardolph: Falstaff / City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

“A ruddy-nosed, bright-toned Bardolph from Peter Van Hulle…”



"Lukas Jakobski’s tall Pistola and Peter van Hulle’s shorter Bardolph roughed up to make a classic partnership."

The Guardian


Roderigo: Otello / English National Opera

“Through all the other top-notch attractions — Allan Clayton’s eloquent Cassio, the vigorous chorus, Peter Van Hulle’s foppish Roderigo, Pamela Helen Stephen’s proto-feminist Emilia — Verdi’s amazing orchestral finery keeps on glinting.”
