The Russian baritone came through his first recital in months last night, appearing in Toronto with Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov.



‘Spaseba,’ he posted afterwards. ‘It’s good to be back.’


  • Ernest Low says:

    Bravo Dima! So good to see you back. Wishing you a speedy recovery!

  • Meal says:

    Good news! Are there any reviews on this recital yet available? Or has anybody of you attended the concert?

  • Zelda Macnamara says:

    Judging by the comments and clips on Facebook, he did more than just “come through”. The encore Ochi Chernye sounded as good ever.

  • Kristina Pax says:

    Already waiting for the next concert of our beloved, magical Dmitri Aleksandrovich in our city, of Toronto. Thousands thanks to the Producer- Svetlana Dvoretskaya for making my dream come true. I am still, processing it through my brain that I was really there on April 25 in our Opera House and saw this magnificent artist-Dmitri Hvorostovsky on stage with my own eyes. It was an unforgettable experience. One in a lifetime!

    Hi folks.
    I’ve been following Dmitri’s progress. Came across this clip, which shows him with his right arm in a sling, and looking unwell. He was presented with an award of some sort, spoke to the audience, then walked unsteadily offstage.

    I don’t speak or read Russian. Can someone please enlighten me/us?
