“Renée Fleming & Dmitri Hvorostovsky: A Musical Odyssey in St. Petersburg”

Reneé Fleming and one of her favorite singing partners, Dmitri Hvorostovsky, explore the origins of 19th-century European opera performance in the courtly theatres of St. Petersburg, presenting a three-part program of Verdi duets, songs by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov and Medtner, and Tchaikovsky opera, performed, by special permission, in the opulent theatres of the legendary Winter Palace, the Palace of the Yusopov family and the magnificent Peterhof. The program is fronted by Reneé Fleming herself as she takes the viewer on a journey through the musical locations and history of "the Venice of the North."
