Macbeth, Macduff

I have only done a few Italian lyric tenor parts. One of them is Macduff in Verdi’s Macbeth.

The part is not big, but Macduff’s aria: Ah, la paterna mano, where he is determined to avenge the deaths of his wife and children at the hands of Macbeth, is so emotional and beautiful and I loved to create this scene of sorrow and grief.
