This is the performance of Verdi's Il Trovatore where Dmitri Hvorostovsky steps forward and is showered with white roses from the orchestra. Since he originally sang this Met Live in HD performance, he has died. I cried in the theater today. Everything is simply wonderful. It plays again in the evening so be sure to see it.
