Zsuzsanna ÁDÁM Soprano


In the season 2022/23 the Hungarian soprano makes her debut as LEONORE in “La forza del destino” at the Mannheim National Theatre.

After winning the Éva Marton International Competition and the Antonio Bertolini Singing Competition in Milano, Zsuzsanna Ádám became the shooting star of the lyrico-spinto repertoire in Hungry.

In February 2021 she made her debut as ELISABETTA in a new production of Verdi’s “Don Carlo'' at the Budapest State Opera. The premiere was life-streamed. The press enthusiastically wrote:

„Zsuzsanna Ádám as Elisabetta has a constant, warm soprano voice, ready to attack but also capable of the most beautiful pianissimo in the highest registers.”

At the Budapest State Opera, she could already be seen as SZILÁGYI ERZSÉBET in Ferenc Erkel’s opera “Hunyadi László” , a role with which she had already enjoyed great success previously at the Miscolc National Opera. Moreover, she sang the soprano part in Verdi’s Requiem and succeeded here also as MAGDA in “La Rondine”. She equally portrayed MAGDA at the Cluj-Napoca Opera în România.

She studied at the Liszt Ferenc Academy with Éva Marton and took master classes with Mirella Freni and Andrea Rost. In 2017 she won the 2nd Prize at the International Singing Competition ‚Anton Rubinstein‘ in Düsseldorf.

Her operatic debut as BERTA in “Il Barbiere di Siviglia” at the Baja Opera followed in 2014.

In 2022 she made her German debut as ELISABETTA in “Don Carlo” at the Trier Theatre.


Nationaltheater Mannheim – La forza del destino - LEONORA
The Hungarian soprano Zsuzsanna Ádám sang a guest performance as Leonora. She has studied with Eva Marton and attended master classes with Mirella Freni. In the dramatic part of Leonora, she almost reached vocal boundaries with her lirico soprano. She truly has the potential for the development into the dramatic soprano repertoire. A beautiful timbre, warm in the medium register and appealing high tones enable Zsuzsanna Ádám a huge range of formative capacity. Vocally ,in the dramatic passages in the monastery scenes, she acted highly smart and forced at no time. At times, her voice was covered by the orchestra but she always remained vocally authentic, even in reaching her vocal limits. Especially in the high lyrism, she could prove her strengths. Let’s hope Ádám takes her time for a carful development of her repertoire. Her voice has an exceptional quality, which is seldom found nowadays!

In the title role Zsuzsanna Ádám celebrated her role debut. In which the 34-year old Hungarian singer succeeded extraordinary well, considering the fact that she was covering the much more experienced Csilla Boross. She convinced with her voluminous, gently timbred soprano voice, flourishing in the high registers. A brilliantly high „lama“-C made one forget many an expandable diction in key passages such as „ Il prezzo!“. Anayway, we really look forward to her Leonora in Verdi‘s „ La forza del destino“ at the Mannheim National Theatre upcoming March.

Young soprano Zsuzsanna Ádám, singing Elisabetta, was a major treat of the performance. Her voice initially struck me as a bit heavy, but while her voice is deep and rich, it can also soar to a beautiful pianissimo while scaling the heights of the melodies. Her voice production is even and unaffected; she simply opened her mouth to sing exquisite phrases and powerful longings.
La Isabel de Valois de la joven soprano Zsuzsanna Ádam fue una de las principales atracciones de la representación. Su voz parecía inicialmente un poco densa, pero aunque es profunda y rica, también puede elevarse a un hermoso pianissimo mientras escala las alturas de las melodías. Su emisión es uniforme y no afectada; canta simplemente frases exquisitas y anhelos poderosos.
