Latest Acclaim

"When baritone Zeljko Lucic took the stage as Germont, Alfredo’s overbearing father... [he] conveyed his character’s menace through the darkness of his vocal colors and the imperiousness of his body language. So it was not difficult to believe that this domineering man could coax Violetta into giving up Alfredo against her will. When Lucic sang 'Pura siccome un angelo,' there was no missing the irony of such beautiful sound masking such an evil act. And Lucic made practically a lullaby of 'Di Provenza il mar.'"
