LONDON, November 10. /TASS/. Renowned Russian opera singer Dmitri Hvorostovsky will take part in six performances of Verdi’s Il trovatore (Troubadour) at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden this winter, the Royal Opera House spokesperson told TASS on Thursday.
"Mister Hvorostovsky will appear on stage to perform the part of Count di Luna the Il trovatore. The performances are scheduled for January 26, 28, 31 and Ferbruary 3, 6 and 9," the spokesperson said.
On October 16 Hvorostovsky turned 54 celebrating his birthday on tour in Germany’s Frankfurt am Main. In the near future the operatic baritone plans to present two programs in Russia. He will perform for the first time at Moscow’s Bolshoi Theater participating in Verdi’s Don Carlos on December 7 and 10. Besides that, the ‘Hvorostovskty and Friends’ concerts will take place at Moscow’s Kremlin Palace on December 14 and at the Oktyabksky concert hall in St. Petersburg on December 18.
In September and early October Hvorostovsky’s performances at the Vienna Opera were cancelled since he had to undergo another round of chemotherapy. In the summer of 2015 he was diagnosed with brain cancer. Despite getting medical treatment, he continued performing, in particular he went on a North America tour and performed the Songs of the wartime program at the Green theatre at the VDNH complex in Moscow.
