By the lead tenor's dressing room

Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Two words: Siberian Elvis. He is my guilty-secret poster boy. I was close to speechless (yes, me) when I met him except to say the one Russian phrase I practiced, which was supposed to mean "I am extremely pleased to meet you." For all I know, I promised him a penguin, but he was charming. Photo from Don Giovanni, 1998.
