Lucas Meachem | Meet the Artists
Baritone. Giorgio Germont in La traviata.
Hailing from Raleigh, N.C., Lucas studied at Appalachian State University, the Eastman School of Music, and Yale University before becoming an Adler Fellow with the San Francisco Opera.
Lucas’s “earnest appealing baritone” (New York Times) has led him to the world’s most important opera stages, from the Metropolitan Opera to San Francisco Opera and Royal Opera. He appeared as Figaro in LA Opera’s Grammy Award®–winning recording of The Ghosts of Versailles.
For his WNO debut, Lucas portrays Alfredo’s hardheaded but loving father.
“My favorite moment of La traviata is Violetta and Germont’s duet,” Lucas told WNO. “Germont decides to judge Violetta on the substance of her character rather than her occupation.”
Fun fact: Lucas gives helpful advice for singing in Italian, creating a vocal game plan, navigating stage romance etiquette, and more in his personal blog!
