Biography

Anglo-Czech Mezzo-Soprano Lucie originally read Modern Languages at Oriel College, Oxford, obtaining a 1st class degree. She subsequently attended the Royal Academy of Music in London, graduating with distinction after winning the prestigious Elena Gerhardt Lieder Prize, the Patricia Kris Wolfe Prize and the Wilson S&M Eyres Scholarship.

Lucie enjoys an extremely varied international career, encompassing opera, lieder, theatre and, predominantly, oratorio. She recently returned to opera, singing the role of Flosshilde / Das Rheingold with the London Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Vladimir Jurowski, with recent oratorio appearances including performances at the Royal Albert Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, St John’s Smith Square, St Martin-in-the-Fields, London and the Rudolfinum in Prague. Other operatic engagements include Lapák / The Cunning Little Vixen and 3rd Orphan / Der Rosenkavalier (Glyndebourne Festival Opera / Jurowski / Ticciati) and Cherubino / Le Nozze di Figaro (RAM / Sir Colin Davis).

Lucie is a keen recitalist and performs regularly with pianist Lada Valešová, appearing at the Wigmore Hall, the National Museum, Munich and the Concentus Moraviae Festival, Brno, with the Korngold Quartet. As an actor she has performed regularly with the Prague Shakespeare Company, most recently appearing as Polixenes in the first ever English/Czech dual language production of The Winter’s Tale (National Theatre / Guy Roberts).

Due to her linguistic background, Lucie is in great demand as a language coach for singers, and has coached Czech opera at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Glyndebourne Festival Opera and the Bavarian State Opera, Munich.
