Canadian tenor ADAM FISHER is rapidly gaining attention for his charismatic stage presence in a wide range of repertoire. Critics hailed his debut as Pedrillo in Opera Atelier’s production of Mozart’s Abduction from the Seraglio, and his performance in City Opera Vancouver’s world premiere 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 and was later invited to the Music Academy of the West, leading the cast as Tom Rakewell in Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress. He is a frequent guest artist with Toronto’s Voicebox: Opera in Concert and Toronto Operetta Theatre, where he charmed audiences as Raoul in La vie parisienne and Count Gustav in Lehár’s Land of Smiles. He celebrated a Viennese New Year with Victoria Symphony Orchestra in an evening of operetta favorites.
Oratorio and concert performances include Handel’s Messiah with National Arts Centre Orchestra and Toronto’s Aradia Ensemble, Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings with Ottawa’s Thirteen Strings, and Mendelssohn’s Elijah with Vancouver Bach Choir. He is 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 Arts Festival to Lieutenant Cable in South Pacific with Pacific Opera Victoria.
Upcoming performances for this multitalented singer include Rolf in The Sound of Music with Opera on the Avalon and Father Alexander in the world premiere of Oksana G with Tapestry New Opera.
