Lucas Meachem, Grammy Award winning Baritone and Animal Rights Advocate, joins me from the road just before he performs on stage. Spanning his career, Lucas has performed at the Hollywood Bowl with Gustavo Dudamel, at the Vienna Opera House, the Paris Opera House, the Los Angeles Opera, the Washington National Opera, Michigan Opera Theater, the Canadian Opera, Napa Opera and the Metropolitan Opera House. It is hard to believe that Lucas actually got his start in a Paris karaoke bar where he was discovered!
Lucas is currently performing at the San Francisco Opera house playing Mercutio in Romeo and Juliette. He will also be a featured speaker at the upcoming California Vegetarian Food Festival on September 21. I will be interviewing Lucas live, so I hope you will join us at this free event. For sure we will be discussing his favorite routine of eating an Impossible Whopper before every performance and his dramatic weight loss on a vegan diet!
Enjoy this candid interview with Lucas Meachem who speaks passionately about his love of animals and music and his deep belief that veganism is the social justice movement of our time. In the excerpt above, Lucas talks about re-thinking the status quo and questioning why we eat the way we do.
Its a vegan’s night at the opera! To hear Lucas on The Elysabeth Alfano Show, the first and only syndicated, plant-based radio show in the nation, on WCGO Radio and The Smart Talk Radio Network, click here.
Plus, during Covid times, Lucas talks about surviving as a performer when all performances are cancelled. Plus, he compares Coronavirus to the Spanish Flu of 1918 and talks about the increasing demands of opera: you have to do more than just sing!
