Lucia is a not only a brilliant actress she is also a highly gifted teacher. As an acting coach, she has helped me to prepare operatic repertoire for both auditions and stage performances. She can work with anyone from acting students and opera singers to individuals needing help with presentation skills. She is fluent in German, Italian and English and was effectively able to help me with analyzing a Verdi opera libretto in relation to the music and development of my character. Her source of knowledge is vast in all areas of performance skills and while she instructs, she also creates an open and supportive environment to her students/clients. I can highly recommend Ms. Rios’s services to anyone.
