MOSCOW, October 11. /TASS/. A popular Russian tabloid, Komsomolskaya Pravda, will 
officially apologize to internationally acclaimed Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky for 
reporting about his alleged death, managing editor of the paperís website Olesya Nosova 
told TASS.

"No doubt, we will apologize to Dmitri Hvorostovsky, his wife and the entire family," Nosova 
said. According to her, "the situation is unacceptable, and will be thoroughly considered by 
the editorial office, we will find out how this could have happened."

Early on Wednesday, some Russian media outlets disseminated reports of the singerís 
alleged death, without sourcing this information to anyone.

Hvorostovkyís London agent Mark Hildrew told TASS that media reports about the alleged 
death of Hvorostovsky are "totally untrue."

"He is alive and at home," Hildrew said, adding: "We will look at a legal case for sure."

In the summer of 2015, Hvorostovsky was diagnosed with a brain tumor. In late September 
2016, the singer had to cancel his performance on the Vienna State Opera stage in 
Giuseppe Verdiís Simon Boccanegra. In December, the Bolshoi Theatre officially canceled 
Hvorostovskyís debut in Verdiís Don Carlos. In late June, it was reported that the singer 
would not take part in the new 2017-2018 season of the Vienna State Opera for health 

In late April, the famous baritone successfully performed on the Toronto stage and also 
gave a surprise to the Metropolitan Opera guests due to the theaterís 50th anniversary. On 
May 27, Hvorostovsky performed at the City Day celebration in St. Petersburg and on June 
2, in his hometown of Krasnoyarsk.

Hvorostovsky, who has earned several awards, including the Peopleís Artist of Russia (in 
1995), has been living in London over the past years.
