The Royal Opera House has announced a memorial concert for Dmitri Hvorostovsky.

The concert will see artists of The Royal Opera and friends celebrate the achievements of the great Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky, who died in November 2017.

The Russian baritone was one of the most remarkable and beloved artists of our time and was well-known at the Royal Opera House since his debut in 1992 as Riccardo in “I Puritani.”

He would become a regular artist with the company from 2001 to 2015 and would perform such roles as the title role in “Rigoletto,” Count di Luna in Il Trovatore” and Giorgio Germont in “La Traviata.” He was also well known for his Valentin in “Faust” and the title role in Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin,” with which he made his final appearance with the company in 2015.

The concert will be held on March 18 and will be led by music director Antonio Pappano. Askonas Holt, Hvorostovsky’s agency, are providing logistical support and one of the baritone’s personal friends will compère the evening, a very personal and special occasion to honor a dear friend.
