Adam is one of the first recipients of a Career Development Award by the Bryn Terfel Foundation. He graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London in 2012, immediately embarking on a freelance career, performing the role of Marcello in La Boheme for the London Opera Players. In the 2012 Wexford Festival he performed the role of Earl of Dunmow in The Dinner Engagement and subsequently performed the role of Gulliver in the world premiere of Orlando Gough’s community opera, Imago for Glyndebourne Opera. He has excellent acting skills and possesses a sumptuous baritone voice, which makes him also well suited to musical theatre roles.

Adam Gilbert studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, where he graduated with a BMus in Classical Singing under the vocal tuition of Adrian Thompson and guidance of Kathryn Harries. He has now embarked on his freelance singing career and is one of the first recipients of a Career Development Award from the Bryn Terfel Foundation. He is also kindly supported by the Elizabeth Evans Trust.


Adam is a very dynamic and versatile young artist. His operatic roles include The Earl of Dunmow in Berkeley’s A Dinner Engagement and 2nd Bargee in A Village Romeo and Juliet for Wexford Festival Opera,  Marcello in La Boheme for the London Opera Players and Papageno in Die Zauberflöte and Count in Le nozze di Figaro for Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He has also performed the role of Filch in Surrey Opera’s production of The Beggars Opera which toured the UK. He performed with Welsh National Youth Opera for three seasons and understudied the role of Pirelli in their acclaimed production of Sweeney Todd.


His concert repertoire includes Stainer’s Crucifixion, Handel’s Messiah and Orff’s Carmina Burana. He regularly performs as soloist with choirs and has toured the UK performing ‘An Evening of Song’ with a quartet from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.


Recent engagements include the role of Gulliver in the world premiere of Orlando Gough’s community opera, Imago for Glyndebourne Festival Opera. Future plans include Perichaud in La Rondine for Iford Arts Festival and Dancaire in Carmen for Mid Wales Opera.
