  • 10.04.2017 - Kate Lindsey "took center stage" (Daily Bruin) as Nicklausse

  • Nicklausse (Kate Lindsey), a Muse of the arts disguised as man, follows Hoffmann throughout, saving him from his lovesick antics.

    Throughout the show's segmented plot, Lindsey's saucy and sarcastic Nicklausse – the personification of Hoffmann's artistic inspiration – served as a strong focal point. Lindsey taunted Grigolo's Hoffmann like a longtime chum, imitating snippets of his lovers' songs and poking fun at his lovelorn state.

    Although her character was written as a sidekick to Hoffmann, Lindsey often took center stage, her convincing physicality as a man aided by her rich mezzo-soprano.

    She melded into the opening and epilogue tavern scenes filled with young men huddled around Hoffmann. Her femininity was completely and appropriately disguised for the sake of the part of Nicklausse, a "pants role" always portrayed by a female performer.
