Lucy Thalange is a vibrant young artist with a passion for opera, history and fitness. Her true speciality, however is French patter songs (the more words, the better!) She is interested in weaving politics, social issues and personal histories into programmes to create a unique story for her audiences. Having completed her final recital at the Royal Academy of Music which surrounded themes of feminism and womanhood she is excited to be graduating from her Master's in July.
Lucy’s strong background in choral music has opened many doors throughout her time at RAM. Most recently she has been engaged in performing new choral works. She also has enjoyed being in opera choruses for Royal Academy Opera (RAO). These performances have included Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta, Massenet’s Chérubin and Ravel’s L’enfant et le Sortileges.
Following the success of these productions Lucy was given her first principal role as Third Boy in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte with RAO. Another recent highlight was playing the lead role in a new opera by George Parris called 'When the Sky Cracks Open' which she is looking forward to taking to the 'Tête á Tête' opera festival in September. This Summer Lucy is also off to Nerisheim (Germany) to join the RAM Chamber Choir in a series of concerts and services at Nerisheim Abbey. Before that, however Lucy has two very exciting projects coming up: her debut as the Mezzo-Soprano soloist in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and a cabaret concert called 'BALLYHOO!' at RAM.
