Voice Over

Marni Nixon: The voice of Maria in West Side Story.

She brought luster, anonymously, to the golden age of the movie musical by providing the voice behind the on-screen face of Natalie Wood, Audrey Hepburn, and many others (she overdubbed both Maria and Anita in the quintet from West Side Story), but this soprano has also worked with classical musicians from Charles Ives to Liberace, with a repertory embracing Mozart, Anton Webern, and Rodgers & Hammerstein. She'll offer an evening of song and reminiscence. GAVIN BORCHERT
