Il Divo – the record-breaking classical crossover group that has sold more than 26 million albums worldwide – will bring A Musical Affair: The Greatest Songs of Broadway Live to theaters across the United States and Canada. The engagement supports the group’s sixth studio album, A Musical Affair. It’s their first compilation of songs inspired by Broadway shows such as The Phantom of the Opera, Carousel and West Side Story.
Il Divo is the world’s first and most successful classical crossover group. The foursome has sold more than 26 million albums worldwide, achieved more than 50 number one records, received 160 gold and platinum sales awards in more than 33 countries and staged four groundbreaking world tours. The international quartet is comprised of tenor Urs Buhler of Switzerland, baritone Carlos Marin of Spain, pop artist Sébastien Izambard of France and tenor David Miller from the United States. As Il Divo first came to fruition in 2003, this year’s album and complementary concert series marks a milestone for the four singers as they commemorate the success of a 10-year career together.
Lea Salonga, the award winning singer and actress best known for her Tony Award winning role in Miss Saigon, will join Il Divo. Lea Salonga’s powerful voice and perfect pitch will be featured in both solo performances as well as duets with the group throughout the night.
