Adam Gilbert is a very dynamic and versatile artist. His sumptuous baritone voice and excellent acting skills make him well suited to operatic and musical theatre roles.

Adam performed the role of Escamillo in an abbreviated Welsh language production of Carmen for Opera Cymru at the National Eisteddfod of Wales and recently performed the roles of Dancaire, Morales and Zuniga in a concert performance of Carmen with the Orchestra of the Welsh National Opera at the 2016 Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod. This season, Adam understudies the roles of Belcore in Scottish Opera’s touring production of The Elixir of Love and Marcello in La Bohème for Scottish Opera. He will also sing the baritone solos on Scottish Opera's 'Opera Highlights Tour'.

Adam Gilbert graduated with a B.Mus degree from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, where he studied Classical Singing under the vocal tuition of Adrian Thompson and guidance of Kathryn Harries. He is one of the first recipients of a Career Development Award from the Bryn Terfel Foundation and is also kindly supported by the Elizabeth Evans Trust. In 2015, Adam completed his training at the National Opera Studio in London, where his studies were generously supported by The Derek Butler Trust, The Winship Foundation, Help Musicians UK and a Chris Ball Bursary.

Adam is a very dynamic and versatile young artist, and in 2013, he created the role of Gulliver in the world premiere of Orlando Gough’s community opera, Imago for Glyndebourne Opera. Other engagements include The Earl of Dunmow in Berkeley’s A Dinner Engagement and 2nd Bargee in A Village Romeo and Juliet for Wexford Festival Opera, Frédéric in Lakmé as part of the Christine Collins Young Artists performance for Opera Holland Park, Dancaïre in Carmen for Mid Wales Opera, Perichaud, Crebillon and Maggiordomo in La Rondine for Iford Arts Festival, Marcello in La Bohème for the London Opera Players. He performed the roles of Papageno in Die Zauberflöte and Count in Le nozze di Figaro whilst at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London and also performed the role of Filch in Surrey Opera’s production of The Beggars Opera which toured the UK.

His concert repertoire includes Stainer’s Crucifixion, Handel’s Messiah and Orff’s Carmina Burana.  

Last season, Adam performed the role of Escamillo in an abbreviated Welsh language production of Carmen for Opra Cymru at the National Eisteddfod of Wales. Other roles include Major in a new production for Children, KidO and understudy Pish-Tush in The Mikado both for Scottish Opera and understudy James in the world-premiere of Stuart MacRae's The Devil Inside, a co-production by Scottish Opera and Music Theatre Wales. Recent concert performances include the roles of Dancaire, Morales and Zuniga in a concert performance of Carmen at this year’s Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod.  Future plans include understudy Belcore in The Elixir of Love and understudy Marcello in La Bohème for Scottish Opera. He will also be the baritone soloist in their “Opera Highlights Tour” next year.
