Dmitri Hvorostovsky has died at the age of 55. He will be remembered as the Siberian baritone who not only won the critical acclaim but was also very charismatic. For his devoted fans around the world, he was known for his rueful expressivity as well as his uncanny breath control. He will also be remembered for the burnished voice. Information about his death was confirmed by the talent management agency that used to represent him in years. The agency was known as Askonas Holt, and the news was broken by Mark Hildrew, the spokesman for the company. The agency further confirmed that he had died from complications that had been caused by brain cancer. His condition has been known to the public since he announced it back in 2015.

Back in his younger days, he was described using his white premature mane hair. He was very tall as he measured six-foot-and one inch. Things were not always simple for Dmitri Hvorostovsky as he had a story to tell about his life. He was born in a Siberian town where he lived a street-gang life. However, he managed to leave this behind him when he discovered his talent. This happened in the unlikeliest of circumstances owing that he came from a region that was notorious for cultural isolation. Nonetheless, he had to fight other battles on the way to a promising career. For instance, he successfully fought a tempestuous drinking problem.
He will be remembered for being a lyric baritone who had a light voice. What made him different was the distinctive sound. Whenever he managed to combine it with some Russian-style melancholy, the outcome was marvelous. He also had the ability to incorporate some velvety Italianate lyricism into his work. Following his death, he was eulogized by Renee Fleming who said that he had never met a beautiful soprano than that of Dmitri Hvorostovsky. As he built a name for himself, Dmitri Hvorostovsky became a hotcake around the world. He was chased after for the way that he defined the Verdi baritone roles. In the Metropolitan Opera alone, he recorded a remarkable success as he was able to play a total of 13 roles. At the same time, he managed to make over 180 appearances in the Opera. He began his work with the Opera back in 1995.
