Magic & Mayhem Artist Interviews: Marques Hollie

Get to know the cast of Magic & Mayhem! 

Marques Hollie, tenor, will be performing Dans Macabre (Saint-Saens), The Field Marshal (Mussorgsky), and Phantom of the Opera (Webber). 

Describe your dream role

Oh gosh! I feel like there are so many ways to answer this. My dream roles include: Rodolfo in La Boheme, Arnold in Guillaume Tell, Lohengrin in...Lohengrin, and for something completely different, The Baker in Into The Woods

If you weren’t an artist, what would your dream job be?

I had international law ambitions at one point, specifically, working at one of the international courts based out of The Hague. Other dream jobs include: economist (I blame the Dubner/Levitt Freakonomics collaborations), and working for the UN (in general).

Tell us something unusual or bizarre about your hometown.

I grew up all over the place and spent many years living in Nebraska (Bellevue and Omaha). About 7 hours away from Bellevue, in a town called Alliance, there's a replica of Stonehenge made out of cars.

What’s on your schedule after Magic and Mayhem?

I'll be working with Cantanti Project again as Aminta in L'Euridice and premiering my Passover monodrama, Go Down Moshe, in the spring.

What's one song on your playlist you can't help but dance to?
