On June 19 Dmitri Hvorostovsky's spectacular open-air concert with Anna Netrebko on Moscow's Red Square will be broadcast across Russia and Europe. "Live from Red Square" will include favorite arias by Verdi, Puccini, and Tchaikovsky, among others. For this exceptional event, Dmitri and Anna will be led by Constantine Orbelian, who will conduct the Russian State Academic Symphony Orchestra "Evgeny Svetlanov" and the Academic Grand Choir "Masters of Choral Singing."
Dmitri Hvorostovsky returns to the stage of the Teatro di San Carlo in the title character of Verdi's classic operatic tragedy Rigoletto from May 17 to 25. The Siberian baritone reprises one of his signature roles as the despised court jester Rigoletto, who protects his innocent daughter Gilda, sung by Desirée Rancatore, against the lecherous Duke of Mantua. Pier Giorgio Morandi leads the performances, which take place May 17, 19, 22, and 25.
