Following a return to the role of Renato in Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera earlier this season at Covent Garden, Dmitri Hvorostovsky makes his next operatic appearance in Moscow at the end of this month. The occasion will mark the Siberian baritone’s role debut in Rubinstein’s The Demon.
In semi-staged performances given January 30, February 2, and February 5, Dmitri will sing the haunting and seductive title role under the baton of Mikhail Tatarnikov and with the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia accompanying. Also featured in the cast are soprano Asmik Grigorian, contralto Larisa Kostyuk, countertenor Vadim Volkov, tenor Vasily Efimov, and basses Alexander Tsymbalyuk and Dmitry Skorikov. Dmitry Bertman directs.
