The number three features strongly at the beginning of Lucie Kaňková’s new season. She will make her debut at the three national theatres of three countries within three weeks and she will sing her most beloved roles.
“I will be Queen of the Night at the Estates Theatre in Prague,” says Lucie Kaňková who had to wait almost a year for this debut at the theatre with a genuine Mozart spirit and tradition, owing to the closure of theatres. “I am going to perform the famous aria of the Queen of the Night and La Traviata duets at a gala concert in Odessa on 30th anniversary of Ukraine’s independence too. Their beautiful National Theatre is stunning in its architectural grandeur with over 1,700 seats. In Chisinau I will perform the title role of La Traviata in a production with really amazing colleagues. My Alfredo will be the excellent Spanish tenor Celso Albelo, a student of the legendary Carlo Bergonzi. He sings at the world’s most famous opera houses, such as the MET, Covent Garden and La Scala. That’s a big motivation.”
Lucie Kaňková used her free time during the Covid restrictions for her development and managed to win several prizes in international singing competitions. For example, in spring 2021 she won the world singing competition Nomea and six months earlier she won the audience award in the Australian singing online competition. She is now reaping the benefits of this with offers to perform.
