Next month, Dmitri Hvorostovsky returns to Covent Garden to reprise his acclaimed account of Tchaikovsky’s renowned antihero, Eugene Onegin. The Siberian baritone steps into Kasper Holten’s production, conducted by Semyon Bychkov, who conducted the 1992 recording that heard Dmitri in the title role for the Philips Label.
At the Royal Opera House, Dmitri stars opposite Nicole Car as Tatiana, Michael Fabiano as Lensky, Oksana Volkova as Olga, and Ferruccio Furlanetto as Gremin. Performances open December 19 and continue with Dmitri through January 2. December 30’s performance will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in February 2016.
