Vancouver tenor Adam Fisher begins his busy 2013 season as Pedrillo in Opera Atelier's acclaimed production of Mozart's The Abduction from the Seraglio.
A graduate of the University of British Columbia, Adam joined the Emerging Artists Program with Calgary Opera in 2010, singing the roles of Ferrando in Così fan tutte, Wilhelm in Burry's The Brothers Grimm, and several roles in the world première of Bramwell Tovey's The Inventor.
Adam's professional singing career began with over 180 shows throughout British Columbia with Vancouver Opera's school tours, in which he played the roles of Al in The Barber of Barkerville and Jackson in Jack Pine. In 2012, Adam was invited to the prestigious Music Academy of the West by celebrated mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne, where he led the cast as Tom Rakewell in Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress.
Adam returned to Calgary as Tamino in Cowtown Opera's fresh version of Mozart's The Magic Flute and joined this innovative company as Alfred in their 2012 production of Die Fledermaus.
Mr. Fisher recently starred in Best of Broadway, a concert of favourite Rodgers and Hammerstein songs with Chorus Niagara, and he was a guest artist with Vancouver's popular Music in the Morning for I Got Rhythm: The Songs of George Gershwin.
In Toronto, Adam sang Nicias in Voicebox/Opera in Concert's performance of Massenet's Thaïs and charmed audiences as Raoul in La vie Parisienne with Toronto Operetta Theatre.
Debuts in the 2013/14 season for this charismatic young tenor Include Britten's haunting Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings with Ottawa's Thirteen Strings Chamber Orchestra, Lieutenant Cable in South Pacific with Pacific Opera Victoria and the Victoria Symphony, and Alfred in Edmonton Opera's delightful Die Fledermaus.
Adam Fisher made a sympathetic Tom Rakewell, with an expressive, affecting voice that gave added poignancy to the character's inexorable descent into ruin and madness.
