Classical Broadway - Hadleigh Adams

July 23, 2017
2:00 pm
Firehouse Arts Center

New-Zealand born baritone Hadleigh Adams has been praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for his "poignant," "expressive" voice, and "beautiful tone with both flexibility and power." In a coup for this summer's concert series at the Firehouse Arts Center in Pleasanton, the internationally acclaimed baritone and soloist will present "Classical Broadway," celebrating the songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim, and much more. Selections will include "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, "Bring Him Home" from Les Miserables, and many more. Adams will also sing contemporary classics from the songbooks of Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber. The Firehouse concert follows close on the heels of Hadleigh's hit June performances with Festival Opera at Lesher Center in Walnut Creek. As an esteemed alumnus of San Francisco Opera's Adler Fellowship, Mr. Adams performed in over 75 mainstage performances during his 2-year tenure with the company. With a demanding concert schedule on the opera stage, Adams has in just the past year performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony & Chorus, Pittsburgh Opera, West Edge Opera, Opera Cincinnati, and the San Francisco Opera. Last season he received critical acclaim for his New York debut with the role of Zoroastro in Handel's "Orlando." Recent previous engagements include London's Royal National Theatre and Sydney Opera House. In addition to his operatic repertoire, Adams has a very serious passion for musical theatre. The Firehouse program is Hadleigh's indulgent dip into the treasured songs from classic Broadway shows that are traditionally performed by the Leading Man.
