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.
