Theo Adam (b1926)

Between 1936 and 1942 Theo Adam sang in the Dresden Kreuz Choir, before active service in the German army. After World War II he worked as a farm labourer, returning to Dresden in 1946. He then studied to become a teacher, but his voice attracted attention and he received vocal tuition from Rudolf Dittrich. Adam made his operatic début in 1949 with the Dresden Opera, to which he remained attached throughout his long career. His repertoire here was extremely large and included such major rôles as the title parts in Don Giovanni, Boris Godunov, Wozzeck and Cardillac, as well as Baron Ochs/Der Rosenkavalier, King Philip/Don Carlos, Pizarro/Fidelio, Jochanaan/Salome and Scarpia/Tosca. He took part in the reopening performances in 1985 at the Semper Opera House, Dresden, damaged during the war, as Ochs and the Hermit/Der Freischütz. In addition to his work at Dresden, from 1957 Adam was a member of the Berlin State Opera in East Germany, where he was also active as a stage director from 1972. A highlight of his time with this company was the creation of the title part in the first performance of Dessau’s Einstein (1974).
