Hadleigh Adams to peform biographical recital in San Francisco

Hadleigh Adams at Pinchgut Opera in Castor & Pollux and Bajazet
Kiwi barihunk Hadleigh Adams has written a 90-minute show that combines songs and arias he has sung throughout his life, along with anecdotes (both PG and R rated) to illustrate why he chose this most absurd of careers and why he knows he'll never leave. Adams traces his journey from small town New Zealand to the San Francisco Opera, the oh-so-garish lights of San Francisco's Castro District, and the thrilling and frightening experience of starting a major international career.  

We saw a private performance of the program and it's an absolute "must see" for any fan of opera.

Adams is going to perform the show publicly at San Francisco's Martuni's bar on Wednesday, March 4th at 7 pm.

Tickets are $10 each and support the Merola Opera Program, from which he graduated before becoming a San Francisco Opera Adler Fellow and beginning his international career. Seating is very limited. To order tickets, call Merola at (415) 565-6427, visit or click here for tickets.

Adams has become a fan favorite in the Bay Area, where he has been acclaimed for his roles in San Francisco Opera's Les Contes d'Hoffmann, Dolores Claiborne, Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Madama Butterfly, and Schaunard in last winter's La Bohème. He will perform in Vivaldi's Bajazet this summer with Pinchgut Opera in Australia.
