Born in Melbourne, Adrian Dwyer studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the National Opera Studio. He made his professional debut as Rodolfo in Baz Luhrmann’s La bohème in Los Angeles, winning an LA Stage Alliance Award for Outstanding Performance.
Appearances since include Cape Town Opera, Opera de Toulon and State Opera of South Australia, Opera Comique Paris, ENO, Opera North Scottish Opera, Opera Holland Park, Buxton Festival and NI Opera.
Apart from Mime at Longborough, this season’s highlights include his return to Welsh National Opera as Anatole in David Pountney’s new production of Prokofiev’s War and Peace, following what critics called a “career-defining” house debut with the company last season as Andrei in Mussorgsky’s Khovanshchina. He also makes main stage debuts at Israeli Opera and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, following a return to Opera Queensland as the Prince in John Adams’ A Flowering Tree.
