Lucy Thalange is a vibrant young artist with a passion for opera, history and fitness. She is interested in weaving politics, social issues and personal histories into programmes to create a unique story for her audiences. Currently, she is looking forward to performing her final recital of her undergraduate degree at the Royal Academy of Music (RAM). The recital is called Nomad and is on the theme of immigration. This is of particular interest to Lucy as members of her own family are immigrants and refugees. Her grandmother who, as a child, fled the Holocaust is one of her greatest inspirations. Lucy is looking forward to continuing to tell these stories to new audiences and hopefully provide a unique perspective on these issues.
Lucy’s strong background in choral music has opened many doors throughout her time at RAM. She was fortunate, during the pandemic, to have been given opportunities to sing for the Royal College of Nurses and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health’s carol services. 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 performing Bach Cantatas No.42 and No.135 as the alto soloist conducted by Eamonn Dougan. Lucy is looking forward to further exciting opportunities as she heads into her Master’s degree at RAM.
