It is with great excitement that Étude Arts announces the general management of tenor Adam Smith effective immediately.
Praised for a voice possessing ‘incredible shimmer and blade,’ Adam Smith recently concluded his residency in the Ensemble at Opera Vlaanderen in Antwerp, where a broad range of roles included Tamino in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, the Indian in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Sadko, Steuermann in Wagner’s Der fliegender Holländer, Cassio in Verdi’s Otello, Walther in Wagner’s Tannhäuser, and Amon in Glass’ Akhnaten.
Adam Smith won First Prize, Audience Prize, Critics’ Prize, and the prize for The Best Tenor at the 2015 Ferruccio Tagliavini International Singing Competition in Austria. In the same year he won Third Prize in the Ada Sari International Singing Competition in Poland and, in 2016, he was a finalist in the International Moniuszko Vocal Competition.
Raised in Cheshire, England, Adam Smith studied the violin from the age of four and was graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music with a first class honours degree in music with additional degrees from the International Opera Course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and a Master of Music with Distinction.
