In Toronto, Dmitri Hvorostovsky gave a triumphant performance of arias and duets alongside soprano Anna Netrebko and tenor Yusif Eyvazov. The Toronto Star lauded the Siberian baritone’s “blistering performance” from Rubinstein’s The Demon as well as Hvorostovsky and Netrebko’s “gripping rendition” of the final scene from Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. Dubbed “Trio Magnifico,” Italian conductor Jader Bignamini led the Canadian Opera Company Orchestra in the sold-out concert–dubbed “Trio Magnifico”–at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.

On April 25, Dmitri Hvorostovsky returns to Toronto to join Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov for a gala concert of opera arias, duets, and trios. Dubbed the “Trio Magnifico,” the evening marks the first time that the three opera stars have headlined a concert program together.

Dmitri Hvorostovsky is postponing scheduled recitals in Kaliningrad and Minsk over the coming week and canceling his Wiener Staatsoper recital on March 7 after being advised by his doctors to continue treatment for his brain tumor during this period.
“I had been greatly looking forward to these recitals, and it truly pains me to have to withdraw from them,” says Dmitri. “However, right now I must follows doctor’s orders and focus on my recovery. I sincerely appreciate all of the love and support that has been shown to me by my family, friends, and fans.”
Dmitri plans to return to performing in April with a concert in Toronto with Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov and a recital in Dublin.
