Adam Fisher, Tenor

Pacific Opera Victoria
Lysander in A Midsummer Night's Dream

April, 2016


Canadian tenor Adam Fisher debuted with Pacific Opera Victoria in 2013 as Lieutenant Joe Cable in South Pacific in Concert. He returns as Lysander in the 2016 production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Adam is rapidly gaining attention for his charismatic stage presence in a wide range of repertoire. Critics hailed his debut in 2013 as Pedrillo in Opera Atelier's production of Mozart's The Abduction from the Seraglio and his performance in the world première of Margaret Atwood and Tobin Stokes' opera Pauline drew critical acclaim.

A graduate of the University of British Columbia, Adam joined the Emerging Artists Program with Calgary Opera in 2010. Adam was invited to the prestigious Music Academy of the West, leading the cast as Tom Rakewell in Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress.

In Calgary, Adam starred 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.

Equally at home in the music of Broadway, Adam's versatility ranges from his powerful portrayal of the title role in Jesus Christ Superstar at Westben Festival, to Lieutenant Cable in South Pacific with Pacific Opera Victoria. Adam headlined with Chorus Niagara in “Best of Broadway” and won raves in "Some Enchanted Evening", a program of Rodgers and Hammerstein favourites with Brantford Symphony. Adam joined baritone Jason Howard for “Kings on Broadway” with Westben Festival in 2015.

Adam charmed audiences as Raoul in La Vie Parisienne and as Count Gustav in Lehar's Land of Smiles, both with Toronto Operetta Theatre.

In the 2014/15 season, Adam debuted in Messiah with the National Arts Centre Orchestra, sang in the Victoria Symphony's Viennese New Year, performed Normanno in Lucia di Lammermoor with Edmonton Opera, and was tenor soloist in Mendelssohn's Elijah with the Vancouver Bach Choir.

Adam's 2015/16 season includes Camille (The Merry Widow) with Edmonton Opera, Vladimir in Borodin's Prince Igor (Voicebox:Opera in Concert) and Edward in John Estacio's new opera Ours with Opera on the Avalon.


 

Adam Fisher deftly juggled the three roles of Pauline's doctor, manager and Charles Drayton, the real-life Johnson's fiancé, with utter conviction ... Fisher has a bright, flexible tenor, which he deploys with intelligence and sensitivity.

Adam Fisher, who dazzles as Pedrillo, is one of those rare young performers who can sing like Josh Groban, look like Ryan Reynolds and clown like Martin Short. That's my idea of a triple threat.
