Il Divo – A Musical Affair: The Greatest Songs Of Broadway Live

About

Friday 24 October 2014

Following a successful week of concerts at New York’s Marquis Theater on Broadway, Il Divo - the record-breaking classical crossover group who has sold more than 26 million albums worldwide - will bring “Il Divo – A Musical Affair: The Greatest Songs Of Broadway Live” to arenas across the UK, visiting Capital FM Arena Nottingham on 24 October 2014.

The world tour, which begins in February 2014 in Japan and travels across the globe including North America and Europe till it reaches the UK leg in October, supports the group’s sixth studio album “A Musical Affair”. It’s their first compilation of songs inspired by Broadway shows such as Phantom of the Opera, Carousel and West Side Story and features stellar duet partners Barbra Streisand, Kristin Chenoweth, Nicole Scherzinger, Heather Headley and Michael Ball.

The limited engagement of live concerts in NYC marked the first time the four members sang together on the Broadway stage. The show intertwines the most famous songs from Broadway musicals with the individual theatrical experiences of Carlos, David, Urs and Sébastien. Tony and Grammy Award Winner Heather Headley was a featured guest for the entire run.

“Il Divo constitute an astutely selected mixture of operatic and quasi-operatic voices, singing in several languages, which blend seamlessly while maintaining perfect pitch” Stephen Holden, New York Times

“The four combine gorgeous singing with a kind of Disney-prince handsomeness”Frank Scheck, New York Post

"Magnificent, outrageously wonderful and a must-see not-so-guilty pleasure” - Judd Hollander, Epoch Times

The quartet members are no strangers to musical theatre; Carlos was cast as Marius in Les Misérables when the show first premiered in Spain in 1993, while David played Rodolfo in Broadway’s La Bohème in 2003, which subsequently garnered seven Tony nominations.

The new show was developed by long-term Il Divo collaborator and artistic director Brian Burke (La Reve and Celine Dion’s residency shows in Las Vegas, Elton John, Rod Stewart and The Killers).

The album “A Musical Affair” (2 Dec, UK) showcases Il Divo’s signature romantic and emotional interpretation of heartfelt classics like “Some Enchanted Evening” (South Pacific), “Bring Him Home,” (Les Miserables), “Tonight,” (West Side Story), and more. Il Divo has also provided new arrangements for these much-loved songs, as well as invited familiar Broadway and pop artists to appear on certain tracks as their duet partners. These top musicians lend their talent in songs like “Music of the Night” (Phantom of the Opera) – LIVE duet with Barbra Streisand; “All I Ask Of You” (Phantom Of The Opera) – duet with Kristin Chenoweth; “Memory” (Cats) – duet with Nicole Scherzinger; and “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” (The Lion King) – duet with Heather Headley.

Urs Buhler of Il Divo said "It has been so inspiring to work with such legendary songs from the world of Broadway musicals for our new album and we can't wait to now perform them in our own style to our fans around the world".
