Dear Fellow Posters:

      This is a real heart-tugger.  It sure as hell forces one to REALLY think about what's important in live and what is not.  Our friend Dimitri is in a very bad way and the only thing we can pray for is that he doesn't suffer.  I'm REALLY upset over this.

Hvorostovsky looked unrecognizable and helpless. He went out to the stage being very pale and lame on one leg with his left hand hanging on the bandage stretched over his neck. He fell down in St. Petersburg several days earlier but refused from treatment in a hospital. He sang with great difficulties and spoke with poor articulation. The spectators greeted him with great enthusiasm, crowned each piece performed by him with stormy applause and ... with tears in their eyes. All the listeners of the concert took it as his farewell concert. The city authorities awarded him the title of the Honorary Citizen of the Krasnoyarsk Region and in his short final gratifying speech he thanked the people for this title and for their love which he always kept in his heart. He said that he felt obliged to arrive and give this concert in Krasnoyarsk. He also had to confess that his most big achievments and victories on the world opera stage were left behind, but he had nothing to do with it. Still, his two last words addressed to the audience before he left the stage were "Goodbye! Goodbye!" which he emphasized with an expressive gesture which ment "Not farewell"!
