Adam Fisher, TenorIn City Opera Vancouver’s Pauline –
"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."
– Robert Jordan, Opera Canada
Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings with Thirteen Strings –
"...beautifully sung by Fisher. His voice is ideal for this repertoire, smooth and flowing without becoming unctuous as the music sometimes invites."
– Richard Todd, Ottawa Citizen
Canadian tenor Adam Fisher 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 Abduction from the Seraglio and his performance in the world premiere of Margaret Atwood/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’s professional singing career began with Vancouver Opera's school tours as Al in Barber of Barkerville and Jackson in Jack Pine, performing over 180 shows throughout British Columbia. In 2012, Adam was invited to the prestigious Music Academy of the West, leading 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.
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 and in concert with Chorus Niagara in “Best of Broadway”. In 2014, Adam was a guest soloist with Grand River Chorus in Some Enchanted Evening, a programme of Rodgers and Hammerstein favourites with Brantford Symphony.
In Toronto, Adam charmed audiences as Raoul in La Vie Parisienne with Toronto Operetta Theatre and joined the cast of Calgary’s Candide at their 2014 Opera in the Village Festival.
Recent debuts for Mr. Fisher include Britten’s haunting Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings with Ottawa’s Thirteen Strings Chamber Orchestra and Alfred in Edmonton Opera’s delightful Die Fledermaus.
In 2014/15, Adam looks forward to Messiah with National Arts Centre Orchestra, Viennese New Year with Victoria Symphony, Normanno with Edmonton Opera’s Lucia di Lammermoor, and to his debut with Vancouver Bach Choir in his hometown, as tenor soloist in Mendelssohn’s Elijah.
