    what makes the baritone voice so special: from Nabbuco to I Due Foscari, from Macbeth to Luisa Miller, and Rigoletto, and Germont in Traviata — for Verdi, it’s the voice of authority. The voice of fathers. The voice of calm. The voice that as children, we heard in the arms of our fathers, right next to his heart.
