Krystian Adam


The Polish tenor Krystian Adam studied at the Warsaw Academy of Music and the Conservatorio “Giuseppe Verdi” in Milan. In 2007 he made his debut in the world premiere of Fabio Vacchi’s Teneke at La Scala in Milan. Other credits include Mozart’s Figaro and Cilea’s Adriana Lecouvreur at the Royal Opera House in London and Mozart’s Idomeneo at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice; Riccardo Chailly engaged him for performances of Puccini’s La fanciulla del West, and Claudio Abbado invited him to appear in concerts with the Orchestra Mozart. Adam is also intensively devoted to the music of the 17th and 18th centuries and has worked in historically informed practice with such conductors as Giovanni Antonini, Jean-Christophe Spinosi, Teodor Currentzis, Rinaldo Alessandrini, Václav Luks, and Raphael Pichon. He has collaborated with Sir John Eliot Gardiner in touring performances of Monteverdi’s Vespers and L’Orfeo
