Lucia's Voice | Transgender Baritone Lucia Lucas In Tulsa

Lucia's Voice

In May 2019, Kirkpatrick & Kinslow Productions (Boomtown: An American Journey, Unlikely Family, Susan's Story) have begun post-production on a cutting edge, timely documentary: Lucia's Voice (Working Title). The film features the first baritone transgender woman performing a lead role in an opera in the United States. Internationally renowned opera star Lucia Lucas performed the hyper-masculine role of Don Giovanni at the Tulsa Opera in May 2019 to critical acclaim.

Under the direction of critically acclaimed James Kicklighter (The American Question, Desires of the Heart, Angel of Anywhere), Emmy Award winning KKP Producers Russ Kirkpatrick & Andy Kinslow are joined by Executive Producer Josh Bachove (Lizzie, Yoga Hosers, The Little Hours) - all of which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, for the feature length film. Tulsa & Oklahoma crew were also utilized in filming.

 Tulsa Opera Artistic Director Tobias Picker discovered Ms. Lucas, and cast her in this high profile role on a worldwide stage coinciding with the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, an LGBTQ uprising led, in part, by transgender activists. Picker says "Lucia's dominance of this art form, and of this opera in particular, combined with her unique life experience, will stun audiences with a fresh take on the philandering protagonist's conquests and ultimate demise."

Of the performances, Ms. Lucas says, "in the era of the "Me Too" movement, this opera will have incredible impact to opera fans, and to LGBTQ community members, and others, perhaps just being introduced to opera."

Tulsa World  Seeing a crew of people lugging cameras and lighting equipment and setting up a filming location isn’t as rare a sight in the Tulsa area as was once the case.

Public Radio International  The New York Times sent a reporter. The Metropolitan Opera sent a casting representative. Lucas had a documentary crew following her around. And her dad, whom she hadn’t seen for a decade, flew in specially for the occasion.

Broadway World  Principal filming on the documentary begins in April. The film will look into Ms. Lucas' life, and her love of opera, and will examine the affection the mid-sized modern American city of Tulsa - where Ms. Lucas will perform - has historically had for the arts. In the early 1900's, Tulsa had an Opera House before it had running water.
