Dmitri Hvorostovsky has cancelled another set of performances due to ongoing treatment.

A Facebook statement said, “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.”

He added, “I had been greatly looking forward to these recitals, and it truly pains me to have to withdraw from them. 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.”

Hvorostovsky is still planning on performing in April in a concert in Toronto with Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov and a recital in Dublin.

Last year Hvorostovsky announced that he would be canceling all opera engagements for the foreseeable future so he could concentrate on his treatment. The baritone however noted that he would still perform recitals and record CDs.

This season Hvorostovsky was slated to perform in a revival of Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin” with Anna Netrebko at the Metropolitan Opera. He was also slated for a revival of Verdi’s “Il Trovatore” at the Royal Opera.
