Adam, Adolphe Charles
(ädōlf` shärl` ädäN`), 1803–56, French composer of the popular song Cantique de Noël. He composed more than 50 stage works, including comic operas such as Le Postillon de Longjumeau (1836) and the ballet Giselle (1841).
Together, the orchestra and the chorus also presented White Christmas by Irving Berlin arranged by Roy Ringwald, O Holy Night by Adolphe Adam arranged by Arthur Harris, Christmas Day by Gustav Holst, and Music from Frozen by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez arranged by Bob Krogstad.
But the incredibly music of Adolphe Adam, along with a revision of the original Jean Coralli-led choreography by Sergei Bobrov - one of the most gifted contemporary Russian choreographers and the artistic director of the Krasnoyarsk State Ballet and Theatre company - make sure that the production is fresh and appealing even after 175 years.
