A classically educated singer holding a Master’ s degree from The Royal Danish Academy Music, awarded with the second prize for The Best Reflection Assignment of the Year (Master Thesis), her author play Abstract Love, exploring improvisation of classical musicians and deconstructing a “performance” of classical musicians. The play had a debut at The Vildskud Festival for independent art in Copenhagen in 2019.

After finishing her studies in the 2019 Lucia was introduced as a young professional at The Copenhagen Opera Festival in a collaboration between opera singers and Danish rappers OPERAP in Tivoli and taking a part in a masterclass with a well known vocal coach Gregory Lamar. She is currently employed by the Royal Danish Opera House.

Lucia combines her, as she puts it, “poetic tendencies”, with experimental free impro-music which brings her to unexpected musical situations and collaborations. She is known for creating unique classical concerts, where she makes connection with audience through losing some of the “classical concert” stigmas, by showing the human being-musician from a more approachable and sensitive side.

Already at the age of nineteen Lucia was a guest soloist at The Slovak National Opera House in Bratislava, singing a smaller part of “Morena” in the Opera Svätopluk by Eugen Suchoň. Later, during her studies in Brno, she sung Olga and Filipevna (Eugen Onegin, Tchaikovksy), Dorabella (Cosi van tutte, Mozart) at the Chamber Opera of JAMU and Zefka (The Diary Of The One Who Disappears, Janáček) at the Festival Janáček Brno.

Lucia was a member of the prestigious Schleswig Holstein Music Festival Choir, which selects young aspiring professionals from the whole world for choral concert activities.

Currently, Lucia is broadening her interpretation skills and repertoire in a baroque interpretation class with Peter Spišský at Lunds University, Sweden.

In the nearest future Lucia is starting a course on electro-acoustic composition and aspires to finish writing her second play.
