An Interview with Adler Fellow Brian Jagde
Successful opera singers bring passion to the stage. But many don’t leave it there. Case in point: Brian Jagde. Spend a few minutes with him and you can’t help but get swept up in his enthusiasm. How fitting that he is a lyric tenor. His verve is ideal for the kind of roles he’s bound to play – notably the ardent young lover. It almost didn’t happen. “I started out as a baritone. But everyone knows it’s the tenor who gets the girl,” Brian says with a laugh.
