“Adrian Dwyer tackled the stratospheric tenor role - a veritable Matterhorn in itself – with heroic stamina”
Australian tenor Adrian Dwyer has sung in many of the world's greatest opera houses and concert halls, gaining international recognition for his “gorgeously honey-toned” and “thrilling” voice and vivid dramatic portrayals. Born into a musical family, he studied at the Victorian College of the Arts and the Australian National Academy of Music, winning a full scholarship to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the National Opera Studio (London). Further studies included the Steans Institute for Young Artists (Ravinia Festival, Chicago), the Britten Pears Young Artist Program and the Wagnerjahr Meisterkurs at the 2013 Bayreuth Festival. He continues to study privately with Julian Gavin.
His discography includes "Trouble in Tahiti" and "Sweeney Todd" with the Munchen Rundfunkorchester under Ulf Schirmer, "Death in Venice" with English National Opera, and Vakula in Cherevichki with Garsington Opera under Elgar Howarth. He has also broadcast regularly for BBC Radio 3. Future highlights include his debut at the BBC Proms, and return visits to English National Opera, Opera North and NI Opera.
