“Exuberantly and resoundingly sung” | Meachem as Escamillo in Toronto

The Canadian Opera Company passionately presented Carmen with a stellar cast and production. J’Nai Bridges, Marcelo Puente, Rihab Chaieb, and Joyce El-Khoury sing this Seville tale and bring this story to musical life. Some of the fantastic reviews of Lucas’ performance are:

“And whoever stuck to their guns in casting Lucas Meachem as Escamillo needs a raise – every gesture, every rattle of his robust baritone seems to say, ‘I’m here for a good time, not a long time.'”

The Globe and Mail

“The flamboyant Escamillo, aptly played by American baritone Lucas Meachem, made an Elvis-like grand entrance surrounded by paparazzi in Act II. Meachem is a vocal powerhouse, and … drew roaring laughters with his every appearance. The opening of Act IV was a boisterous affair with Escamillo, along with vendors, picadors, toreros and banderillos parading down the aisles of the theatre while interacting with the audience. This was a truly fun moment that the audiences clearly enjoyed.”

My Scena

“The night was full of terrific performances. Lucas Meachem, whom you may recall as Marcello from the COC’s 2019 La Boheme, was the best Escamillo I’ve ever seen, singing the role really well while swaggering with all the poise of an Elvis.”

Barcza Blog

“Baritone Lucas Meacham, last heard in Toronto as Marcello in La Bohème, was a very impressive Escamillo, flooding the Four Seasons Centre with his huge, warm baritone and toreador swagger.”

Ludwig Von Toronto

“Baritone Lucas Meachem is the appropriately outrageous, ego-inflated, self-adoring matador, Escamillo. Allons! En garde!
