Hadleigh Adams

Hadleigh Adams is a current PwC Dame Malvina Major Emerging Artist with the NBR New Zealand Opera Company ( He makes his professional debut this year in the NBR New Zealand Opera's productions of La Boheme, Hansel and Gretel, and Jenufa.

In 2008, Adams has a busy concert schedule. He'll be performing the Messiah with the Tudor Consort and Vector Wellington Orchestra, the World Premiere of David Hamilton's Breaking the Quiet with the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra, and Bach's Peasant Cantata with the Vector Wellington Orchestra.

A little birdie tells me that there might be some other surprises in store for his barihunk fans. We'll be happy to key an eye on him (and we love the new picture!).


  1. Lovely face, and your teaser is intruiging as ever. tell us more...

  2. G look. I'd like to see him in the brooding, baritone version of Werther.

  3. Nice face. Can he sing?

  4. I love the trend of singers looking better. Even the press photos are looking more like Hollywood starlets (and Hadleigh's looks great!). I don't know his vocal range, but I'd love to see him opposite a hunkentenor in Pearl Fishers. That kind of casting will bring more young people to the opera than anything else.
