Dmitri Hvorostovsky’s return to the Royal Opera House’s production of La traviata this weekend earned the Siberian baritone further acclaim for his signature interpretation of Giorgio Germont. Giving the production five out of five stars, The Guardian noted that Dmitri was “in superb voice… his delineation of Germont’s growing awareness that Violetta’s moral integrity transcends his own, is touching in the extreme.”
Following his acclaimed concert and recital tour this winter, which comprised of 21 performances in 21 cities, Dmitri Hvorostovsky returns to the opera stage for a revival of Richard Eyre’s production of La traviata at the Royal Opera House. Dmitri reprises his signature role of Giorgio Germont, the father of headstrong young lover Alfredo, here sung by Francesco Demuro. The two star opposite Diana Damrau as Violetta, Verdi’s eponymous fallen woman and Dan Ettinger conducts.
Dmitri Hvorostovsky will return to the Royal Opera House in its 2014-15 season to star in a new production of Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera. As Renato, Dmitri headlines a cast that also features Joseph Calleja as Riccardo and Liudmyla Monastyrska as Amelia in a new production directed by Katharina Thoma. Daniel Oren conducts. Performances take place from December 18 to January 17.
