Lyric Opera "Nixon in China" rehearsal

The three secretaries to Mao you'll see in the Lyric Opera of Kansas City production of "Nixon in China" are being sung by current and former Lyric Opera Apprentices Holly White, Kristee Haney and Jennifer Powell.

Due to the complexity of the music and nearly constant meter changes in John Adams' score, the secretaries received several private coaching sessions with Artistic Director Ward Holmquist before rehearsals began.

"Nixon in China" directed by Michael Cavanaugh and conducted by Ward Holmquist opens March, 2012 at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. Visit to select your own seat now!
