John Holiday stars in the upcoming PROXIMITY (Lyric Opera Chicago)
Sure to be one of the most widely heralded musical events of 2022/23, Proximity is a gripping, powerful trio of new works that confront head-on some of the greatest challenges affecting us as a society: yearning for connection in a world driven by technology; the devastating impact of gun violence on cities and neighborhoods; and the need to respect and protect our natural resources.
This new Lyric commission, bringing together a complement of some of the most important creative minds of our time, including winners of the Pulitzer Prize, Grammy Awards, and the MacArthur Genius Grant, promises to be by turns riveting, provocative, and inspiring.
