Mark Ferrell "Mikado" interview by Paul Horsley

Most admirers of the Lyric Opera of Kansas City are hardly aware that Mark Ferrell exists, much less that no Lyric production could possibly happen without him. He is the company’s choral director, rehearsal pianist, vocal coach, backstage conductor and a few other things thrown in for good measure. He is also one of the most gifted people I’ve ever known. Mark’s been a busy fellow lately: On April 20th he steps out from the wings and takes up a baton to conduct the Lyric’s latest outing with Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado. The production, which features world-renowned mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves and local favorite Robert Gibby Brand, is directed by William Theisen.
