International Heldenbaritonistin

Lucia continues her journey deeper into her Wagner journey in the 18/19 season. Wotan in Walküre has been her dream role before she started singing and was watching from the pit in the horn section. She is happy to be debuting Wotan with Theater Magdeburg in September. She will also makes her Mainstage US debut with Tulsa Opera in the title role of Don Giovanni in May 2019.

Masc. vs Femme.

Lucia Lucas spent so long trying to play a boy/man in real life, she is adept at playing men and is always happy to play a man onstage (so long as she doesn't have to play one in real life). She  welcomes the majority of her work to be masculine presenting and her personal life to remain personal.
