Lucas Meachem

Special guest

Grammy Award-winning baritone Lucas Meachem is one of the most accomplished, in-demand singers of the moment, captivating audiences around the world with his “earnest appealing baritone” (The New York Times) and “commanding presence” San Francisco Chronicle. “A rock star of opera” (Opera Pulse), Meachem’s 2018-19 season includes three highly anticipated North American house debuts with Washington National Opera, Canadian Opera Company, and Michigan Opera Theatre.

Following his sensational summer season which included his house debuts at Salzburger Festspiele with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal in Penderecki’s St Luke’s Passion and the Grafenegg Music Festival with Britten’s War Requiem, Meachem starts his season with his house debut at Washington National Opera as Germont in La Traviata. He then sings his “signature role” (Houstonia) Figaro in Barber of Seville for his second house debut at Michigan Opera Theatre. Meachem then returns to the Metropolitan Opera for two productions: Marcello in La bohème, alongside Ailyn Pérez and Michael Fabiano, a performance that was described last season as a “winning, smooth baritone [that] was at once refined and robust” (Parterre), and Robert in Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta. Meachem finishes the season with his house debut at Canadian Opera Company as Marcello.
