Ádám Zsuzsanna

No. 2

Voice type: soprano

Country: Hungary

Date of birth: 24 April, 1988

Ms Ádám conducted her higher education studies in Pécs, Szeged and Mantua. Last year, she pursued post-gradual qualifications at the Liszt Academy under the professional guidance of Éva Marton. She participated a number of masterclasses working with such excellent singers as Andrea Rost, Mirella Freni or Emma Kirkby. Her talent and diligence were recognised at various international vocal contests: in 2017, with barely a two-week difference, she came second at the International Anton Rubinstein Competition in Düsseldorf and won first prize and a special award at the Antonio Bertolini Competition in Milan. The Hungarian audience has had the opportunity to hear her in various operas, for example in January, this year as Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni or Maddalena in Verdi’s Rigoletto at the Open Air Festival in Szeged in June.
