Adam Cromer, tenor
Possessing a “luxuriant tenor” voice, Adam Cromer delights audiences by delivering “splendid long held high notes” in the lyric spinto repertoire. Adam is a hard working, thoughtful performer who delivers power, generosity, and vulnerability on stage.
This spring you can find Adam in an exciting role debut as well as a returning favorite. He is off to Los Angeles to sing the role of Don José in Carmen with Pacific Opera Project. He then travels to Mississippi to sing Cavarodossi in Tosca with Natchez Festival of Music, a role for which he has been praised both for being vocally "at the top of his game" as well as "good-looking enough for Floria Tosca to kill for."
Last season Adam returned to Sarasota Opera, where he sang the role of Delmonte in Un giorno di regno and covered the role of Lennie in Of Mice and Men. He was a soloist for a concert of operatic works by Antonio Carlos Gomez receiving their North American debut, and in October he made his role debut as Pollione in Norma with Taconic Opera.
Recently, Adam’s portrayal of Rodolfo in La Bohème with the North Shore Music Festival was praised as "standing out among the cast...capable of power as well as subtlety." Other recent performances include the roles of Faust in Mefistofele with Taconic Opera, Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly with Opera Lancaster, and excerpts from the role of Luigi in Il Tabarro under the Brooklyn Bridge with Vertical Player Repertory.
A frequent performer of American Opera, Adam has appeared as Lennie in Carlisle Floyd's Of Mice and Men, Sam in Floyd's Susannah, Valere in Kirke Mechem's Tartuffe, and Arkady in Lee Hoiby's A Month in the Country. He has sung with opera companies throughout the US including Chautauqua Opera, Sarasota Opera, Utah Festival Opera, American Opera Projects, and Union Avenue Opera. Adam performs frequently in concerts and recitals with his many talented colleagues in the New York area.
Born in Nashville, Adam grew up singing gospel and country music, but fell in love with opera while in college. He majored in philosophy, but went on to receive a Masters in Music from Washington University. He followed his formal education with apprentice and training programs for young singers. Adam continues to learn and grow as a singer and a performer and is amazed by the power of music to bring people together and fill voids in our lives. He’s delighted to share in that each time he performs.
