Sunday Morning Opera: Dmitri & Traviata


screen-shot-2016-12-02-at-8-52-17-amWhat we all want is about 41 minutes into the first video. It comes from the November 29 performance that established a new technical milestone for the broadcast of opera.  In fact, the photo I’m using was stolen from a FB page which did a screen shot from the new tech.

“…A statement from Dmitri’s management, Askonas Holt: Having sung four very successful performances of La Traviata in Vienna, Dmitri is back in London.

Following an MRI scan, Dmitri has been advised by his doctors to remain in London for further treatment and rest. As a result, Dmitri must unfortunately withdraw from two performances of Don Carlo at the Bolshoi, which would have marked his operatic debut with the company.

Dmitri deeply regrets the situation but remains optimistic about his recovery and grateful for the support from his family, friends, colleagues, and fans. He looks forward to returning to the stage for the 10th anniversary of Hvorostovsky and Friends with Marcelo Álvarez on December 14 at Moscow’s State Kremlin Palace and on December 18 at St. Petersburg’s Oktyabrskiy Great Concert Hall. Further concert engagements include December 22 in Krasnoyarsk and December 28 in Ekaterinburg….”

We’re praying!
