Soprano Frances Lucey studied in her native Dublin. Engaged at first by the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, she is now leading soprano at Munich's Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz, where she has performed the roles of Sandrina in La Finta giardiniera and Maria in West Side Story. Her other stage appearances have taken her to opera houses throughout Europe and to the United States, where she made an acclaimed North American recital debut at New York's Frick Collection, gave several concerts with Leon Botstein and the American Symphony Orchestra, and sang in Handel's Messiah with the Philadelphia Orchestra. In Ireland, she has won critical praise in opera appearances at the Wexford Festival. Her many engagements with Dublin's RTE Orchestra include a televised Carmina Burana and an acclaimed recording of C. V. Stanford's Requiem. Her first solo CD, Off to Philadelphia, features Irish folksongs, songs by Gershwin and Cole Porter, as well as spirituals.
