“Adam Green sings the role of Arbace with great gusto.”

“Adam Green struck me as having the most smoothly accomplished and most naturally Mozartian voice of all the soloists.”

“Adam Green provides the most convincing Arbace I've come across – what a pity that he was denied the full glory of his aria.”

“Adam Green’s Seigfried was unusually impressive. He’s a natural actor, who brings depth and credibility to the part. Green’s Seigfried is sexy and charismatic. You can understand why Genoveva will suffer so much for his sake.”

“Aeneas, Adam Green, has a rich voice which does what can be done to make this wooden part a little more sympathetic.” Michael Tanner, Spectator

“Adam Green [is] a suave Aeneas, with nicely vocalised contributions” Rupert Christiansen

“Adam Green, was a suitably cocky and bellicose Belcore.”

“The British baritone Adam Green chose two lieder from Schumann’s Liederkreis Op.24 and gave extraordinarily mature and weighty performances of both. He displayed an uncanny ability to grip the listener. The most beautifully balanced of all the baritones, his voice has a weighty lyricism to it, which combined with the velvety timbre of his tone, and the intense legato line, gave unusual colour to his interpretations … by and large his was the most impressive performance of the morning.” Masterclass with Christa Ludwig, Wigmore Hall

“Adam Green raged convincingly as the sober-suited, baffled Ford, and delivered his brooding monologue with telling expression.” Margaret Davies, Opera Magazine

"There were genuine voices here, especially the Ford: a sturdy, strong but honey-toned young baritone called Adam Green whose singing stole the show.” Ford / Falstaff - Iford Festival
