Dmitri  Hvorostovsky 16 October 1962 – 22 November 2017

On Sunday, May 7, Dmitri Hvorostovsky who after being diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2015 had had a hiatus, performed “Cortigiani, vil razza dannata” from Verdi’s Rigoletto before an adoring crowd, in Metropolitan Opera, New York.
It's so sad seeing him so weak. But his voice!
