About Željko Lučić:

Željko Lučić (born 24 February 1968) is a Serbian operatic baritone who has had an active international career since 1993. He was a member of the Serbian National Theatre in Novi Sad from 1993–1998 and at the Frankfurt Opera from 1998-2008. He is particularly well known for his performances in the operas of Giuseppe Verdi; having portrayed a total of 23 leading roles from the great composer's works.

Born in Zrenjanin, Lučić was a member of conductor Slobodan Bursać's Josif Marinković Mixed Choir in his native city while he was a teenager. Bursać encouraged him to pursue a career as a soloist and encouraged him to study singing with Dorotea Spasić in Belgrade. After studying for some years with Spasić, his teacher sent him to the voice studio of the famous mezzo-soprano Biserka Cvejić at the Music Academy in Novi Sad in 1991. Cvejić became his primary teacher and mentor, and in less than two years studying with her, he was offered a contract with the Serbian National Theatre in Novi Sad. In 1995 he won first prize at the international music competition in Bečej, and in 1997 he won first prize at the Francisco Viñas International Singing Competition in Barcelona.

Lučić made his professional opera debut in April 1993 as Silvio in Ruggero Leoncavallo's Pagliacci at the Serbian National Theatre in Novi Sad. He was soon seen at that theatre as Belcore in Gaetano Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore, Enrico in Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor, Germont in Giuseppe Verdi's La traviata, Lionel in Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's The Maid of Orleans, Valentin in Charles Gounod's Faust and the title role in Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin.
