Opera 'Ghosts of Versailles' may live forever
Los Angeles Times

American baritone Lucas Meachem is an internationally sought-after performer whose compelling lyric baritone voice and dramatic interpretations have led him to the world's most important operatic stages. Hailed by critics as "vocally faultless and a natural actor" (Classical Chicago Review) with "a clear baritone whose fragments can pierce the soul" (Forum Opera), and "a rockstar of opera" (Opera Pulse). Meachem has found both critical and commercial success at home and abroad. His latest award came at the 2016 Grammys where he took home a Grammy for Best Opera Recording as Figaro in Los Angeles Opera's Production of The Ghosts of Versailles. Named the winner of San Francisco Opera's inaugural "Emerging Star of the Year" Award in 2016, Meachem highlighted this previous season with a triumphant return to San Francisco in September as Dr. Malatesta in Laurent Pelly's production of Donizetti's comic masterpiece Don Pasquale. Meachem then returned to his frequent collaborators at Lyric Opera of Chicago for role debut as Chorèbe in Les Troyens under Principal Conductor Sir Andrew Davis, followed by his house and role debut as Sharpless in Madama Butterfly at the Dallas Opera. Following his American success he arrived in Germany at the Dresden Semperoper to reprise the role of Don Giovanni in a new production he helped create under the direction of Andreas Kriegenburg. Afterwards he sang the Baritone solo with conductor Emmanuel Villaume in one of his favorite works, Ein Deutches Requiem with the Prague Philharmonia. Meachem finished his season performing the role of Count Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro with Teatros del Canal in several locations throughout Spain. 

Fresh off his Grammy win, Meachem will begin his 2017-2018 season returning to the Metropolitan Opera in one of his signature roles performing as Marcello in Franco Zeffirelli's production of La Bohème. He has been hailed by critics in this iconic role as "never putting a foot wrong as he asserts his rich and powerful baritone," (Music OMH) and continues to stun audiences with his interpretation of Puccini's classic. After, he will debut with Houston Grand Opera in his most iconic role of Figaro in The Barber of Seville. Following his performances in NYC and Houston Meachem will tackle his 50th operative role as Athanaël in Thaïs with the Minnesota Opera. Meachem will return to the Dresden Semperoper to reprise the title role of Mozart's Don Giovanni alongside Michael Eder and conductor Jonathan Darlington. Lucas will then finish out his season with a series of concerts in Salzburg, Monte Carlo, Montreal, Prague, and Napa Valley ... read full bio
