Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Fachs: Hufflepuff

What about Hufflepuff? Have you ever wondered where Harry’s most loyal and dedicated classmates would find their operatic fit? These are the voices you may not hear in the classroom, but are present in the practice room. They never tire of devoting hard work and don’t tend to seek recognition as a reward. Here is a list of some of our favorite Hufflepuff characters and their voice types:

“You might belong in Hufflepuff, Where they are just and loyal, Those patient Hufflepuffs are true And unafraid of toil;” -The Sorting Hat, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone



Cedric Diggory: Lyric Tenor

Cedric is everyone’s favorite good guy and his humble heroism is deserving of a lyric tenor classification. Let’s be honest. If this weren’t Harry’s story, Cedric would have been the romantic hero of the series. His lyric tenor would pair perfectly with Cho’s lyric coloratura, making them the classic romantic pairing.

Nymphadora Tonks: Dramatic Mezzo

“Don’t call me Nymphadora!” Tonks is the perfect dramatic mezzo with her brassy, Gryffindor-like courage. Ultimately, she’s loyal and doesn’t seek the limelight, though she does seek to make others smile. Despite her clumsiness, Tonks shows her unparalleled strength and determination to make sure no one sees the Hufflepuff house as weak. She’s a character and a voice who commands attention, intentionally or not.

Pomona Sprout: Zwischen Soprano

The “mother” type for our favorite Herbology professor. She’s the ultimate nurturer, raising magical plants and guiding students to be the best they can be. She may not be flashy, but is always there with exactly what is needed, whether it’s mandrakes or venomous tentacula. The power and un-classifiable nature of a zwischen voice also reminds viewers of Pomona’s tremendous quiet strength, shown through her ability to remain calm and collected in the worst of times.

Newt Scamander: Lyric Baritone

Though he’s not present in the Harry Potter series, Newt is the star of a text used by Harry and his classmates. Newt is light and smooth enough that you could almost expect him to be a tenor, just like you’d almost expect him to be the complete hero in his own tale (if his rescue of NYC hadn’t had to happen as a result of his endangering it to begin with). Like many baritones, Newt is just persuasive enough to accomplish his goals.

Teddy Lupin: Speaking Role (Child)

Though Teddy, the son of Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks, doesn’t appear in the series until the war, he’s important because he mirrors young Harry and places Harry into Sirius’s shoes. Should Teddy make an appearance in an operatic production, he would be an excellent role for a young actor just beginning his career.
