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. Details found in the calendar section.
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.
Lucia is very proud to have performed for many different venues and festivals. Specialty art festivals, queer venues and one woman shows have been integral to her singing and acting seasoning, but at the moment she is currently focusing on her mainstage career. You may always inquire about specialty shows through her representation.
