Dmitri Hvorostovsky looks forward to a 2016-17 performance season that includes three engagements with the Wiener Staatsoper, the return of Hvorostovsky and Friends in Moscow and St. Petersburg, his operatic debut with the Bolshoi, a new production of Il trovatore at the Royal Opera House, and a revival of Eugene Onegin at the Metropolitan Opera that will be broadcast worldwide in HD.
The Siberian baritone can be seen and heard in two of his most acclaimed roles on the Vienna stage, beginning with a revisit to the company’s production of Simon Boccanegra (September 30 – October 6). He returns to the Viennese stage for Giorgio Germont in La traviata (November 19 – December 1), and visits the house once more for a recital with longtime artistic partner Ivari Ilja (March 7). Dmitri and Ilja are also heard on the recital stage in Turku (September 14), Helsinki (September 17), Riga (November 2), Paris (November 10), and Dublin (April 29).
Verdi is also the vehicle for Dmitri’s operatic debut at the Bolshoi Theatre in Don Carlo (December 7 – 10) and his return to the Royal Opera House where he stars in a new production of the composer’s Il trovatore, helmed by David Bösch (January 26 – February 9). On the opera stage, Dmitri also reunites with Anna Netrebko for Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin at the Metropolitan Opera (March 30 – April 22), with an HD performance transmitted worldwide on April 22.
On the concert stage, Dmitri looks forward to the return of Hvorostovsky and Friends in Moscow (December 14) and St. Petersburg (December 18). Joining him for this installment of the ever-popular series is tenor Marcelo Álvarez with Dmitri’s longtime collaborator Constantine Orbelian on the podium. Dmitri and Orbelian also pair up for a German concert tour (October 16 – 29).
