Introducing Opera on Tap Co-Managing Diva Shaunna Lucas
“One of the greatest things about returning to opera after my long break was watching my husband, a die hard metal fan with zero operatic exposure, develop an admiration for it. Now he can be found listening to Verdi in his Dodge Ram on the way to work.”

Shaunna Lucas, soprano: Shaunna’s most recent engagement was with City Theater as Signora Nacarelli in their production of The Light in the Piazza. Prior to that she performed the role of Donna Elvira in Greater Worcester Opera’s production of Don Giovanni. Other notable performances include Rosalinda in Die Fledermaus and Antonia in The Tales of Hoffman with Northwestern University’s Vocal Career Seminar. Shaunna was classically trained at the University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music. After a thirteen year hiatus, she returned to the stage in 2016. Shaunna lives in Portland, Maine and is a regular performer with the Portland Rossini Club. She was a featured performer in her hometown at the Academy of Holy Names in Albany, New York. She currently studies with Dana Lynne Varga in Boston. A first time mom, Shaunna is currently enjoying time at home with her two month old daughter and is delighted to develop the Maine chapter of Opera on Tap.
