Hailed as one of the world's greatest baritones, Dmitri Hvorostovsky passed away last year. Here, on the anniversary of his birth, his fellow singers pay tribute to the legendary Russian star. Ildar Abdrazakov, Vasily Ladjuk, Agunda Kulaeva, and Sergey Skorokhodov take the stage of the Novaya Opera—where Hvorostovsky first starred in Rigoletto—in a program blending crown jewels of the operatic repertoire and popular song. A moving tribute to an outstanding baritone!
