Hadleigh Adams is a New Zealand-born baritone now resident in the United States. He has a demanding concert schedule on the opera stage having recently performed at London’s Royal National Theatre, the Sydney Opera House, and for two years he was a principal young artist at the San Francisco Opera taking the stage in over 75 performances. In addition to his operatic repertoire, Hadleigh has a passion for musical theatre. This program is Hadleigh’s indulgence into treasured songs from classic Broadway shows traditionally performed by Leading Men, with selections including “The Impossible Dream” from The Man of La Mancha, “Some Enchanted Evening” from South Pacific, “I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face” from My Fair Lady, and “Bring Him Home” from Les Miserables. Contemporary classics from the songbooks of Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber will also be featured, and don’t be surprised if Hadleigh throws in a favorite operatic aria or two.
