Pullin Studio Cabaret

Our second annual Studio Cabaret will highlight classical Musical Theatre, Golden Age Songs, contemporary tunes, and opera samplings sung by members of the Marion Roose Pullin Arizona Opera Studio. This immersive cabaret experience will be hosted by countertenor and NBC’s The Voice finalist, John Holiday. Holiday, who is among the opera world’s fastest-rising stars, deftly bridging genres from baroque to contemporary classical, jazz to spirituals, and his unique voice and charisma to every performance.

His voice has been praised as “a thing of astonishing beauty” (The New Yorker), “arrestingly powerful, secure and dramatically high” (The Wall Street Journal), and “timeless” (The Washington Post). Holiday’s unique voice and powerful story have been the subject of profiles in The New Yorker, CNN’s Great Big Story, Los Angeles Times, and more.
