Nick and Lindsay Williams are a husband and wife multi-disciplinary artist duo living in the desert oasis town of Truth Or Consequences, New Mexico. Classically trained but still over the top, Nick and Lindsay perform together as “Sideshow Opera”, mixing rock, country and classical music, as well as stunts, danger, vaudeville (and even karaoke!) to create a truly one of a kind experience like you’ve never seen before!
Nick and Lindsay originally hail from New York City, where Nick trained in Opera under Joseph O. Presti, and Lindsay trained in Violin under Linda Sinanian. After they met, they took a detour together to New Orleans, Louisiana, where they developed their quirky, humorous act in the bars and nightlife venues of The French Quarter.
In 2019, Nick & Lindsay were quarter finalists on “America's Got Talent” Season 14 on NBC. Their performance was lauded by Terry Crews, Ellie Kemper, Howie Mandell, Gabrielle Union, and Julianne Hough. Lindsay even performed her knife throwing act with Simon Cowell standing in as the human target.
After their time in Hollywood, Nick and Linday connected with “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not”, who sent them on a press tour to promote two new books which Nick and Lindsay appeared in; “Beyond The Bizarre” and “Sideshow & Carnival Curiosities”. Their act was determined by Ripley’s to be “unique and historic performance art”. Nick is the only Opera Singing Daredevil in America who can perform sideshow stunts while singing arias. Lindsay, aside from being a violinist, throws knives at a human singing target with her hands and feet.
Nick and Lindsay have toured around the world with international format “Got Talent” spin-offs, and have played shows around the country in venues such as The Chapel in San Francisco, The Oregon Country Fair, The Dolby Theater in Hollywood, as well as The House of Blues and The Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans. They would love to perform at your venue next!
When they’re not on the road, you can find Nick and Lindsay at their Bed and Breakfast, “The Outlaw Casita” in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.
Lindsay also runs a successful business as a visual artist, "Lindsay D. Williams Art" selling her original paintings, prints, stickers, t-shirts and tarot cards.
Nick is also an actor of the stage and screen, having toured with productions such as "Fiddler On The Roof" and "Les Miserables". He's even led the New York City rockabilly group "The Anteaters", one of many musical groups in his lifetime.
In their down time, they like to soak in Truth or Consequence’s natural hot springs and explore the southwest with their two dogs, creating new art, music and fun along the way.
