REVIEW – Hadleigh Adams Is Knocking Them Dead in ‘St Matthews Passion’ In London.
THIS HARDLY SURPRISES ME. HADLEIGH IS ONE OF THE MOST FOCUSED, TALENTED AMAZING MEN I HAVE MEET. HE WILL DO FUCKING WELL AT WHATEVER HE DOES, WHICH IS OPERA. HUGE CONGRATULATIONS DUDE. YOU DESERVE ALL THE SUCCESS THAT COMES YOUR WAY.
Hadleigh Adams’s Jesus is a resonantly irascible figure,
FROM THE GUARDIAN……..
The presence of Hadleigh Adams’s beguiling Jesus ensures that the arias and choruses become reactions to the life and death of an individual, rather than abstract expressions of devotion: after his solitary walk to his off-stage Calvary, we are painfully conscious of his absence.
FROM OFFICIAL LONDON THEATER
The character of Jesus is actually strangely quiet for much of the evening, though when Hadleigh Adams does sing, it is with a voice that would inspire people to follow him or quake in fear. As he stands or kneels alone on the stage his face is a picture of sorrow and anger.
WOO HOO GREAT REVIEWS BABE. REVEL.
