Dmitri Hvorostovsky returns to the stage of the Teatro di San Carlo in the title character of Verdi's classic operatic tragedy Rigoletto from May 17 to 25. The Siberian baritone reprises one of his signature roles as the despised court jester Rigoletto, who protects his innocent daughter Gilda, sung by Desirée Rancatore, against the lecherous Duke of Mantua. Pier Giorgio Morandi leads the performances, which take place May 17, 19, 22, and 25.
With spring now here, Dmitri is looking ahead to a summer of concerts and opera performances across Europe and his native Russia. He joins conductor Constantine Orbelian for concerts in Krasnodar (June 22) and Macedonia (July 12), and on July 6 he celebrates the opening of the Summer 2013 Universiade Kazan in a concert with soprano Albina Shagimuratova. Dmitri and Albina reunite in Kazan August 30 for a performance with Tartarstan National Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Alexander Sladkovsky.
On the operatic front, Dmitri will guest with the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia under the baton of Antonio Pappano in concert performances of Verdi's Un ballo in maschera at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome (June 2-12).
