Following a successful week of concerts at New York’s Marquis Theater, Il Divo—the record-breaking classical crossover group that has sold more than 26 million albums worldwide—will bring IL DIVO – A MUSICAL AFFAIR: THE GREATEST SONGS OF BROADWAY LIVE to theaters across the U.S. and Canada. The Live Nation-promoted engagement, which begins on March 28 and concludes on June 7, 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 show intertwines the most famous songs from Broadway musicals with the individual theatrical experiences of Carlos, David, Urs and Sébastien. Tony Award®- and Grammy Award®-winner Heather Headley was a featured guest for the entire run. 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 Award® nominations.
The 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).
