THE TURN OF THE SCREW

MRS. GROSE

Nashville Opera

Rounding out the cast is Kaylee Nichols as Mrs. Grose, the housekeeper at Bly.  More than that, though, she is the keeper of secrets with full knowledge of what has happened in the house’s past.  It is Grose who is able to end the horrors that persist in the house and Nichols plays her with a guarded intensity.  She is afraid of what she knows, of what she has seen.  Nichols’ mezzo-soprano voice manages to pierce through in the larger group moments with contrapuntal musical lines coming from every direction.  It’s wonderful to see her versatility, having last played the Mother in Amahl at Christmas.

AMAHL AND THE NIGHT VISITORS

MOTHER

Nashville Opera

"Kaylee Nichols as the mother wears her sadness, frustration, and desperation on her sleeve.  There’s no hiding how very close to having nothing they are and it’s by her choices that the story reaches its tumultuous conclusion."

 

William Schutes, Out & About Nashville

LITTLE WOMEN

JO MARCH

Opera McGill

"Gallagher [Nichols] gives a stellar performance, playing Jo—the most ambitious of the four sisters—with ease, giving a voice to both the trials and successes of herself and her sisters."

 

Miray Eroglu, McGill Tribune

LITTLE WOMEN

JO MARCH

Opera McGill

"Featuring Kaylee Gallagher [Nichols] as Jo, she was energetic and tomboyish in a way that you would expect, and fulfilled what most would consider a demanding role, being onstage for almost the entire production."

 

Angela Beaupre, Montreal Rampagne

57TH PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION

SOLOIST

Lee University Chorus

"Music flooded the Mall, and people as far away as the Washington Monument felt the impact of the full, rich sound. Dontarius Young, from Social Circle, Ga., stepped to the microphone for the first solo followed by Kaylee Gallagher [Nichols] from Centerville, Ohio. With the poise of seasoned performers, they captured the daunting crowd’s attention."
