Farewell, Dmitri

Dmitri Hvorostovsky has died, of brain cancer, at 55.  Here is his New York Times obituary. I had the privilege of seeing him perform at the Met several times, in Un Ballo in Maschera, Rigoletto, and Il Trovatore. He was a fine performer and a very gifted singer. He is gone too young. Below "In loving tribute to Dmitri Hvorostovsky, one of the greatest and bravest artists to ever grace the Metropolitan Opera stage. Watch excerpts from some of his most memorable performances at the Met."
