Bio


Praised by The Wall Street Journal for being “remarkably loud,” American tenor Lucas Levy is gaining recognition for his “suave and dark” voice (La Scena Musicale), and for being “a joy to watch” (Broadway World). His 2017-2018 season includes his debut at Opera Omaha as Dr. Caius in Falstaff, and returns to St. Petersburg Opera as Gastone in La traviata, and Marcellus Washburn in The Music Man.


In the 2016-2017 season, Mr. Levy joined LoftOpera as Doge in their production of Rossini’s rarely heard Otello. In the spring, he made his debut with St. Petersburg Opera as the four Servants in Les contes d’Hoffmann, for which the Tampa Bay Times praised him for, “displaying the kind of tenor one would more likely find in a leading role.” He returned to St. Petersburg in Sondheim’s Into the Woods, with Broadway World saying, “Best in the Cast belongs to Lucas Levy as Rapunzel’s Prince,” which he performed while also portraying with The Baker in family performances.


During the 2015-2016 season, Mr. Levy was an Apprentice Artist with Sarasota Opera, where he performed Araldo in Verdi’s La battaglia di Legnano, the final opera of Sarasota Opera’s 28-year Verdi Cycle. For their Verdi Grand Finale Concert, he was one of the few soloists chosen to participate. He concluded the season with a return to PORTopera as a principal artist in the role of Le Remendado in Carmen.


The 2014-2015 season saw Mr. Levy join Sarasota Opera in their fall production of Pagliacci to cover the leading role of Canio. He was immediately reengaged for their Winter Festival to cover Prince Gvidon in Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Golden Cockerel. His season continued as a Young Artist with PORTopera in his second season with the company. He portrayed the Trio Tenor in performances of Trouble in Tahiti in several locations around Maine, followed by Spoletta in Tosca opposite James Morris as Scarpia. The Portland Press Herald singled out his performance, saying, “Levy brought a sadistic edge to Spoletta, a henchman of Scarpia’s who is usually not worth noting.”


In the summer of 2014, he made his debut with PORTopera. He portrayed Gherardo in the Young Artist production of Gianni Schicchi, and appeared as Borsa in the mainstage production of Rigoletto.

Mr. Levy made his professional debut with Opera Theatre of Saint Louis in the spring of 2012. He sang the role of Duck in Jury in the North American premiere of Unsuk Chin’s Alice in Wonderland, while also being responsible for covering the tenor roles of Mouse, Dormouse, and Invisible Man.


The other roles he has performed reflect his skills as a singing actor. From the romantic leading roles of Vaudemont in Iolanta and Rinuccio in Gianni Schicchi to the modern comedic roles of Flute in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Luigi in Bolcom’s A Wedding, Levy brings his stage skills to every role he inhabits.



No stranger to the concert stage, Mr. Levy has performed as soloist with varied orchestras and ensembles for such seminal works as Handel’s Messiah, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, and Mozart’s Requiem. An avid recitalist, he enjoys the intimacy of presenting song repertoire not afforded to the operatic stage.



An alumnus of the young artist programs of Sarasota Opera, PORTopera and Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, he received his Bachelor of Music degree from Oberlin Conservatory, and his Master of Music degree from Westminster Choir College. Mr. Levy hails from Lexington, Massachusetts, and currently resides in New York City.
