Behind the Voice: Zeljko Lucic
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.

Backstage at San Francisco Opera is a fascinating, fast-moving, mysterious and sacred space for the Company’s singers, musicians, dancers, technicians and production crews. Musical and staging rehearsals are on-going, scenery is loaded in and taken out, lighting cues are set, costumes and wigs are moved around and everything is made ready to receive the audience. From the principal singers, chorus and orchestra musicians to the creative teams for each opera, in addition to the many talented folks who don’t take a bow on stage, this blog offers unique insight, both thought-provoking and light-hearted, into the life backstage at San Francisco Opera.
