Deep Baritone: Dmitri Hvorostovsky

By Alicia Zuckerman

Dmitri Hvorostovsky may be the opera world’s favorite baritone these days.

He’ll perform a recital of Russian art songs Wednesday at Lincoln Center and appear next week at Joseph Volpe’s Metropolitan Opera farewell gala. In a chat with Alicia Zuckerman, he reflected on his image, his complex relationship with the motherland, and an onstage flash of anger that almost turned ugly.
