Born in London, bass, Tristan Hambleton studied at St John’s College Cambridge, Heidelberg Universität and then at the Royal Academy of Music, London. Whilst at RAM, he was awarded the inaugural ABRSM scholarship, a Countess of Munster Trust Scholarship and the D’oyly Carte Trust Scholarship.
In recent years Tristan has established a career as a Recitalist and Concert singer appearing with orchestras such as The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, The Hallé and The London Mozart Players at such venues as The Sheldonian, Wigmore Hall, Cadogan Hall, Bridgewater Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
In Wagner’s bicentenary year Tristan was asked by Sir Mark Elder to sing the role of Hermann Ortel in the Halle's concert performance of Die Meistersinger Act III at the Bridgewater Hall and has since been invited back to sing the Bass solos in the Mozart Requiem at the Bridgewater with the orchestra.
In scenes taken from the operas he has played many roles including Achilla in Giulio Cesare, Guglielmo & Don Alfonso in Così fan tutte, Masetto & Leporello in Don Giovanni, Publio in La clemenza di Tito, Don Magnifico in Cenerentola, Nick Shadow in The Rake’s Progress and Superintendent Budd in Albert Herring.
