"New York City may be called the Big Apple but the title Big A belongs to Adelmo Guidarelli, The Clown Prince of Opera. Adelmo is that amazing combination-- a resonating operatic baritone with a comedic swinging sexy act. Funny-Fun-Fantastic.


(Dorothy Leeds-Broadway Scene and Culture Critic for MSNBC)

“I LOVED this show. It’s a lot of fun and Adelmo-the man is a marvel!”

(Ted Greenberg- Emmy Award winning writer for David Letterman)

“Adelmo is madness on two legs. I wish there were more like him in the music world”

(William Berger- Author of Wagner Without Fear: Learning to Love–and Even Enjoy–Opera’s Most Demanding Genius and Verdi With a Vengeance: An Energetic Guide to the Life and Complete Works of the King of Opera.)

“As an opera-hater, he totally won me over!”

(Eva Heinemann / HI! DRAMA Manhattan Neighborhood Network TV Theatre Critique show)

"Operation Adelmo"
Sporting a horned Wagnerian helmet and other grand costumes, playing instruments ranging from a ukulele to a kazoo and delivering classic arias such as "Vesti la giubba" in a luscious baritone, Adelmo Guidarelli makes mirth and music in "Operation Adelmo."
Comedy usually rules as Guidarelli "makes parallels on how our pop culture rapes and pillages opera," complete with snatches from Warner Bros. cartoon parodies like "What's Opera, Doc?" Education also is served as an Elvis Presley hit, "It's Now or Never," is revealed to be really "O Solo Mio."
"There's even a nice Andrew Lloyd Webber joke," notes Guidarelli, who was a student of the late basso Jerome Hines and a frequent performer with the New Jersey State Opera.
"We'll be having a lot of fun with some wonderful music over 90 minutes," promises the former resident of Parsippany and Randolph. "But I mean no disrespect for opera -- because, after all, that's what I do."
