Born in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, Adelaide Phillips was a contralto. She debuted as Little Pickle in "The Spoiled Child" at the Boston Museum in 1843. Phillips made her New York debut at Barnum's Theatre as a child dancer. In 1856 she made her opera debut at the New York Academy of Music as Azucena in "Il Trovatore." Under the name of Mademoiselle Fillippi, Phillips again sang the role of Azucena in Paris, at the Italian Opera House.
