“To hold his own, Macbeth must be a true Verdian baritone, with enough voice and enough hues in it to imply power-lust and terror at the same time, whether confronting Banquo’s ghost or the Witches’ apparitions. He must warm to his despair at the last, when Verdi finally gives him a melody worth filling the house. Zeljko Lucic possesses such a voice, sturdy and soaring, his arching phrases expressing the self-questioning of a man who commits crimes while knowing better.”
