After much anticipation, the time has finally come: It is with great pleasure that we announce that Il Divo are set to release their 6th studio album “A Musical Affair,” worldwide on 5th November and 2nd December in the UK.
“A Musical Affair” is Il Divo’s first compilation of songs inspired by Broadway shows such as Phantom of the Opera, Carousel and West Side Story and features amazing duet partners Barbra Streisand, Kristin Chenoweth, Nicole Scherzinger, Heather Headley and Michael Ball.
The complete track listing is as follows:

2. Can You Feel The Love Tonight (feat. Heather Headley)
3. Bring Him Home
5. All I Ask Of You (feat. Kristen Chenoweth)
6. Some Enchanted Evening
7. Who Can I Turn To?
8. Who Wants To Live Forever
9. You’ll Never Walk Alone
10. If Ever I Would Leave You
11. Love Changes Everything (Michael Ball and Il Divo)
12. The Music Of The Night (Barbra Streisand with Il Divo)
Urs believes that this album will put an entirely new twist on the Broadway classics because many of the songs were initially intended for soloists and are now being sung by a group. “We’ve managed to create a version of these songs that is different, and I hope we’ve done these great songs justice.”
Speaking about her duet on the album, Tony Award winning singer and actress, Kristin Chenoweth said: “I first met Il Divo when we performed together for some special Christmas shows in New York in 2009, so it has been wonderful to finally record together. ‘All I Ask Of You‘ is such a beautiful song and I’m thrilled at how our version has turned out.“
The new album will be available in the following formats: The Standard 12 track CD / Digital download and the Deluxe edition which will feature an exclusive interview with Il Divo, “The Magic of Musicals” on DVD, 20 page booklet and gift packaging.
Go to The Il Divo Store to pre-order your exclusive edition of the Deluxe album which will include a personalized calendar featuring every purchasers name and signed by Il Divo.
Il Divo, the operatic pop vocal group, is coming to Broadway for a limited run at the Marquis Theater on Nov. 7 and plans to release an album of show tunes the same week.
The series of concerts, entitled “Il Divo – A Musical Affair: The Greatest Songs of Broadway,” will feature songs from classic shows like “Phantom of the Opera,” “Carousel” and “West Side Story,” producers said. Heather Headley, a Trinidadian R&B singer and songwriter who played Nala in “The Lion King,” will be a featured guest for the entire six-night run.
The run will mark the first time the members of the popular quartet — Carlos Marín, Urs Bühler, Sébastien Izambard and David Miller — have appeared together on Broadway, though some of them have experience in musical theater: Mr. Marin was cast as Marius in “Les Miserables” when the show had its premiere in Spain in 1993, and Mr. Miller played Rodolfo in “La Boheme” on Broadway in 2003.
The new album, which will be released Nov. 5 on Syco and Columbia Records, is a set of romantic songs from musicals, like “Some Enchanted Evening” from “South Pacific,” “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” from “The Lion King” and “Tonight” from “West Side Story.” Several pop and Broadway vocalists recorded with the quartet for the album, among them Barbra Streisand, Kristin Chenoweth, Nicole Scherzinger and Michael Ball.
The show will run from Thursday, Nov. 7, through Wednesday, Nov. 13, with no show on Sunday. Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Sept. 16 through Ticketmaster, though American Express card holders and the official Il Divo fan club will have a chance to buy them earlier, on Sept. 9.

ROTARY JOINT WORLD IN LISBON
With thousands of members worldwide, convention this humanitarian organization will inject more than 100 million in the local economy
The “oldest city in Western Europe” will organize the annual convention of Rotary International, under the theme “Lisbon – A Port for Peace”, between 23 and 26 June, attracting over 25,000 entries from over 160 countries.
Often described as a “mini United Nations” because of their global and cultural diversity, it is expected that the always colorful Rotary International convention inject about more than 100 million in the local economy. The area around the Atlantic Pavilion, and Lisbon International Fair will be transformed into a kaleidoscope of energy, color and excitement as Rotary members participate in an event with an extensive agenda, consisting of plenary sessions, workshops, and other activities.
Every year Rotary strives to make the Convention an event relevant to the host city. The theme “Lisbon – A Port for Peace” focuses on the meaning and history of Lisbon as a port in the sea. According to Luis Miguel Duarte, president of the Host Committee of Rotary, “In 108 years of humanitarian service in Rotary, this will be the first time that Portugal organizes a convention of Rotary International. This will be the largest convention ever held in Portugal where members of Rotary around the world will join to follow the Portuguese universal spirit of understanding and goodwill. “. The annual convention will be the stage of success stories, exchange of ideas and looking for ways to promote peace through voluntary service.
First priority goes to Rotary to eradicate polio (polio), a disease responsible for the paralysis and deformation that is potentially fatal, that still threatens children in Nigeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Europe is free of polio since June 2002 but the threat remains as long as the disease is eradicated worldwide.
Rotary is a worldwide organization composed of a group of professionals and leaders who provide humanitarian service and help to cement understanding and world peace. The number of members of Rotary, globally, is approximately 1.2 million men and women who belong to over 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.
