Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky spoke to the Los Angeles Times yesterday about his future projects:
Can you talk a little about your collaboration with Russian composer and pop music producer Igor Krutoy and your "Deja Vu" project?
I sang it last year a number of times. It's amazing music that was written by top Russian composers — 24 new songs, written in French, Italian and Russian. I made a recording, I made a music video, and I performed this program in Moscow , St. Petersburg , Kiev a number of times and once at Radio City Music Hall. I'm going to perform it again in Moscow in March this year, and Igor is writing something new, which hopefully includes some of the play theater, so it might become kind of a Broadway show. We're only creating the story, and we don't know what kind of genre it's going to be, but some music has already been written. If it's good enough, I'll probably bring it here, but the text will be written in Russian, so we'll have to write an English text. But so far I enjoy working and expanding my career into a different type of a genre, which brings me an excitement and challenge to my professional life.
