Željko Lučić is currently wowing audiences in Rigoletto
at the War Memorial Opera House. In our ongoing video series, Behind the Voice, we strive to give a voice to our singers off-stage. In the featured video below, Lučić shares his thoughts on the role of Rigoletto, fatherhood and how it affects his performance.
The San Jose Mercury News
raved that Lučić
“has a voice that barbs and caresses his audience.” We can’t help but agree! The Serbian baritone made his San Francisco Opera debut in 2004 as Giorgio Germont (La Traviata
) and returned in 2005 as Don Carlo (La Forza del Destino
). There are just two more chances
to see him as the hunchbacked court jester: tonight and September 21.
