Emil Adami (Tenor) (Östra Nöbbelöv 1860, 8/2 -Täby, Stockholm 1938, 14/8)

After his education he made his debut in 1888 at the Royal Opera in Stockholm as Piféar in ‘’Si j'étais Roi’’ of A. Adam. Till 1891 he remained engaged by this opera house and during the following ten years he made guest appearances in other theaters, primarily in Stockholm and Gothenburg. Then from 1901  to 1917 he was a member of the Stockholm Opera again. At the beginning of his career he sang mostly lyric parts like Wilhelm Meister in ‘’Mignon’’ of A. Thomas and the Roméo in ‘’Roméo et Juliette’’ by C. Gounod, later he took over Buffo and character roles and appeared also in operettas (Pitou in ‘’La fille de Mme Angot’’ by Lecocq, Don Ranudo in ‘’Don Caesar’’ of R. Dellinger). He made only one record.
