Tune in for a recording of the Metropolitan Opera’s acclaimed recent production of Verdi’s Macbeth with Željko Lucic in the title role and Anna Netrebko as Lady Macbeth. Fabio Luisi conducts the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus.

From the Met’s website:

“One of the greatest triumphs in recent Met history. …Anna Netrebko… a spectacular artist of vast interpretive skills… A riveting performance dispatched with artistry and fearless intensity.” —Bloomberg

“This was Ms. Netrebko’s night…Incisive, exacting Verdi singing, with gleaming top notes. She is a soprano with star power in the best sense, a charismatic expressivity that pervades every element of her performance.” —New York Times

“A soaring bravura performance… Željko Lucic is a forceful presence as Macbeth…It is the blind drive for power at all costs that Netrebko so chillingly captures and that makes the Met’s Macbeth such a success.” —Huffington Post

“Željko Lucic gives a “dramatically compelling and vocally nuanced performance…His final, rage-fueled call to battle was harrowing.” —NY Classical Review

Lucic “is an elegant baritone with a distinctive voice, burnished, mellow, a little earthy. He has ample power and smooth legato phrasing.” —New York Times
