Opera Greats 1 Dmitry Hvorostovsky
Dmitri Aleksandrovich Hvorostovskywas born in Krasnoyarsk in Siberia on October 16, 1962. He attended the Krasnoyarsk School of Arts and studied under Yakatherina Yofel. Dimitri made his debut at the Krasnoyarsk Opera House where he stunned audiences. Through the 80's he won many Russian and a world competition by singing mostly from Verdi's Don Carlo.
He cemented his career and place in Opera History when he made his italy debut at La Fenice, performing as Eugene Onegin. With his reputation exploding, he made his American debut with the Lyric Opera of Chicago in La traviata in '93.
In 2003, he gave a performance at the Kremlin infront of 6,000 fans that always had over 90 million live viewers on T.V. He is the rock star of Opera and stands out in the crowd among his peers! He is tall, muscular in build, and exudes unprecedented confidence. Like I stated, he stands out.
Currently, Dimitry is a member of the Board of Directors, for the Russian Children's Welfare Society, a charity that he has raised a large amount of money for.
Probably the most popular baritone at this time, you can catch Dmitry Hvorostovsky on the Russian Recital tour. He was just on PBS with Giuseppe Filianotit and many other current opea greats. It was a fantastic show that is available on his site and you tube. You can always find out where he will be on his website (address below).
