- Tickets On Sale Beginning November 15th On -

NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 . Ticket sales begin on Nov. 15.  See or for more details.

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 Sebastien. 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 Miserables when the show first premiered in Spain in 1993, while David played Rodolfo in Broadway's La boheme 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).

The album "A Musical Affair" 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 "The 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 .

"It has been so inspiring to work with such legendary songs from the world of Broadway musicals for our new album," says Urs Buhler from IL DIVO. "We can't wait to now perform them in our own style to our fans around the world."
