As Father Alexander in Oksana G. with Tapestry Opera – "Adam Fisher’s sweet, bright, and youthful tone was perfection in the role of kindhearted Father Alexander, who gets in way over his head in his efforts to restore Oksana’s faith in humanity and herself. He approached the role with unassuming candor and vulnerability, which was instrumental in making the story ring true." Keira Grant, MooneyOnTheatre.com
As Lieutenant Joe Cable in South Pacific with Calgary Opera in the Village – “….Adam Fisher, whose rich, well-projecting tenor made ‘Younger than Springtime’ a memorable moment in the show. And his dramatic projection of the handsome young American marine had the charm and elan the role requires." Kenneth Delong, Calgary Herald
