Siberian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky returns to Covent Garden to sing the title role in Tchaikovsky’s ‘Eugene Onegin’ over the festive period. He has previously received rave reviews for the role (the New York Times described him as “perfect for this diffident character“) from performances in opera houses worldwide including the Vienna Staatsoper, Teatro Colon, and the Metropolitan Opera New York.
Dmitri is joined by five fellow Askonas Holt artists: Oksana Volkova as Olga, Catherine Wyn-Rogers as Filipyevna, Jean-Paul Fouchécourt as Monsieur Triquet, James Platt as Zaretsky and Brindley Sherratt as Prince Gremin (7 January 2016 only).
The sold out premiere is on Saturday 19 December, with further performances on 22 and 30 December 2015 and 2, 4 and 7 January 2016. On 4 and 7 January, the title role will be sung by Artur Ruciński.
