New townhouse in a respectable area of London Dmitri Hvorostovsky moved six months ago. “Before that we lived in a more prestigious Kensington, says the singer. — But the apartment we got was small. As a family grows: 8 July, the day after son max turned four years we have a daughter Nina. In anticipation of the baby we Flosey (as Dmitri calls his wife Florence. — Approx. ed.) found housing space — an area of 300 square meters, located in a typical London home.

Each family occupies the whole entrance. In the basement we have a guest room and a music room with access to rear courtyard garden. On the ground floor — living room with gas fireplace (wood in some areas of London is prohibited for environmental reasons) and kitchen with balcony, where we often eat Breakfast. Above — two children’s rooms. And on the top of our bedroom. By the way, during the repair it turned out that the ceiling above it are false. We took it apart, made the mezzanine of the book and cut through to the large roof window through which the night is so romantic to see the stars…”

The overhaul, which was done by a team of Polish builders, was engaged primarily in Florence. The daughter of the owners of antique shops in Geneva, she is well versed in the intricacies of the design. Strict, discreet apartment interior she added Antiques — luxury Venetian mirrors, paintings, bronze sculptures. Flo tried to do anything to the husband especially cozy feel after an exhausting tour, because in London, Dmitry happens infrequently (for example, last year, he’s in total, spent at home a month).

The history of acquaintance of the spouses worthy of a screenplay. In January 1999, Mr. Hvorostovsky sang don Giovanni at Geneva Opera. According to the Director of the legendary seducer went on stage in the open Cadillac and then kissed a few girls. Now, the first of them was Florence. “When I saw her, I raised the hair on end, and inside, on the contrary, all fell, — says Dmitry. We kissed, and I’m sure Flash could not feel how I interact with them. I decided to put all points over “i” and after rehearsal told her that he is married and I have two children-twins. Florence answered, “Yes, I know…” that day in the auditorium sat my wife (she is a dancer, we met when we worked together in the Krasnoyarsk Opera theatre). In our relationship for a long time already was not all plain sailing, but I tried to keep ten years of marriage and at first avoided meeting with Flosey offstage.

Ironically, my hotel in Geneva is located next to her house. I’m a bullet and ran out of the theater, not to deal with Flo on the way. But she miraculously was catching up with me”. “In a few weeks, Dima had to go to new York, recalls Florence. On parting he said to me, “I’ll call you.” I then thought, “yeah, like… don’t.” His first call was to me a complete surprise: I was visited in the hospital 97-year old grandmother. We started calling each other with Dima every day, and in the end he invited me to new York. I went, and… since we are together”. “The decision to leave the family I might regret, — says Dmitry. But when I did, it could not turn back and rushed forward like a locomotive.”
