During the 2022 season, Lucas Bouk (he/him) performed Masetto in Don Giovanni with Camerata Bardi Vocal Academy in Syros, Greece and recently created new roles with American Opera Project and NYU / Tisch Opera Lab. He will headline ChamberQUEER’s Pride Festival in June at National Sawdust performing a new commission by Rossa Crean & Bea Goodwin. Summer role debuts include Leporello in Don Giovanni with and Hannah-before in As One with Opera Steamboat.
Prior to the pandemic, Lucas used his “silky mezzo” (New York Times) to perform roles ranging from Lucretia to Carmen to Komponist to Cherubino. In the 2019 season he made his Lincoln Center debut with New York City Opera as Sarah in the World Premiere of Stonewall and performed Hannah-after in As One with Alamo City Opera and again in New York City at Alchemical Studios. He is excited to revisit As One once again – this time as a baritone – with Opera Steamboat in September.
During the COVID pandemic Lucas decided to begin his physical and vocal transition with testosterone. He made his official debut as a baritone with On Site Opera at the Little Island Festival in August 2021 and that fall performed ensemble roles in New Amsterdam Opera’s I Vespri Siciliani and Opera Theater of CT’s Barber of Seville. Lucas continues his studies with Vinceró Academy, learning Conte in Le Nozze di Figaro and Schaunard in La Bohème with in addition to refining his vocal technique with teachers Katherine Ciesinski and Michael Chioldi. Lucas is a proud transgender man and is incredibly happy to be singing again: with his new and authentic voice.
