Lyric tenor Gino Lucchetti of Seattle is well-known for his distinguished artistry, impeccable timing, and what the legendary soprano Jane Eaglen called “high notes so natural and gorgeous that no one should mess with them.” Gino most recently appeared as Rodolfo in Kitsap Opera’s La Boheme, the Verdi Requiem tenor soloist for the Kirkland Choral Society, Alfredo in Die Fledermaus with Bellevue Opera, Don José in Lyric Opera Northwest’s production of Carmen,  Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana with Concert Opera of Seattle, and as the tenor leads in Tacoma Opera’s production of Donizetti’s Viva la Mamma and Black Box Theater production of Ned Rorem’s Three Sisters and Bertha. He has performed roles for Seattle Opera and the Seattle Symphony, and is a regular performer for the Seattle Opera Guild, where his roles have included Rodolfo, Faust, Duke of Mantua, Manrico, Lindoro, Nemorino, Don José, Des Grieux (Puccini and Massenet), MacDuff, Pollione, Florestan, Calaf and King Kaspar. Upcoming roles include Canio and Cavaradossi. Gino’s oratorio repertoire includes Verdi’s Requiem, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Rossini’s Stabat Mater, and Handel’s Messiah and Judas Maccabeus. A past member of the Seattle Opera Young Artists Program, Gino was selected by Seattle Symphony as one of only three Pacific Northwest singers to participate in a public master class taught by Jane Eaglen. He also has recorded “La Serenata,” a collection of popular Italian songs and arias; appears in the popular Gabriel Knight series of video games produced by Sierra On-line; and sings frequently for concert series, festivals, private events and restaurants.
