Eva Lukkonen

Eva Lukkonen, mezzo soprano, made her Atlanta Opera debut January 2022 in the role of Kate in their production of The Pirates of Penzance, and stepped into the role of Texas for Cabaret at Pullman Yards in May/June, both productions under Maestro Francesco Milioto. She was also one of the Judith “memories” in The Atlanta Opera’s reimagining of Bluebeard’s Castle last fall, and was seen as Béatrice in Berlioz’s Béatrice et Bénédict with Atlanta Concert Opera in August. She also sang Cherubino in ACO’s 2019 production of Le nozze di Figaro, a role she had previously performed under Maestro Harry Bicket at the Aspen Opera Theatre. In early 2020, she was the Prince Charmant cover in Cendrillon for Opera Birmingham’s 2020 production (canceled due to COVID). With Capitol City Opera, she was seen as Zita in Gianni Schicchi/Buoso’s Ghost in 2019 and covered Stephano in their production of Roméo et Juliette early 2020. As a native of California, she has performed with regional companies there such as Townsend Opera Players (Sally in Die Fledermaus) and West End Theatre (Edith in The Pirates of Penzance), and has sung with the Bakersfield Symphony in excerpts from Le nozze di Figaro (Cherubino) and Der Rosenkavalier (Octavian). Eva will be seen this month in concert as Isabella in excerpts from Rossini’s L’Italiana in Algeri with Capitol City Opera.  She is grateful for this opportunity to perform with Atlanta Opera again in The Shining.
