"Jerome A. Hines" was an United States/American operatic Bass (voice type)/bass who performed at the Metropolitan Opera from 1946 to 1987. Standing over two meters tall (6 feet, 6 inches), his stage presence and stentorian voice made him ideal for such roles as Sarastro in Die Zauberflöte/The Magic Flute, Mephistopheles in Faust (opera)/Faust, Ramfis in Aida, the Grand Inquisitor in Don Carlos, the title role of Boris Godunov (opera)/Boris Godunov and King Mark in Tristan und Isolde.

Hines also made contributions to higher mathematics.
