Il Divo: A Musical Affair
It's a given that Il Divo would be known for astonishing vocal acrobatics—the group sprang from the mind of music exec and famous American Idol judge Simon Cowell. He brought together four handsome gentlemen of different nationalities—three opera singers and one from the pop world—to form a quartet that would naturally blend different traditions into a powerful harmonic display. The quartet became an international sensation with its interpretations of tunes such as "Unbreak My Heart" and Frank Sinatra's classic "My Way."
Now, to celebrate 10 years together, the ensemble conquers yet another musical genre: show tunes. Appropriately, the new show began life on the Broadway with a 2013 run at Marriott Marquis Theatre in Manhattan. Between songs, the singers share stories about their most memorable theatrical experiences, adding intimacy to all the razzle-dazzle. For this leg of the tour, the gentlemen add a fifth voice, and it's a Tony-winning one: Lea Salonga, the star of the original Broadway productions of Miss Saigon and Les Miserables, brings her vocal chops and star power to the stage for a set of solo performances and duets.
S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium at Benaroya Hall
In the late '80s and early '90s, Seattle was in a state of cultural gridlock. Although it overflowed with art ensembles—a major symphony, ballet, and opera company—they all had to cram into one venue, The Seattle Center Opera House. Giving more room for the arts to breathe, and giving harried event planners a chance to look at a calendar without frustrated tears, Benaroya Hall was erected. Today, the arts fortress takes up an entire city block, with frosted glass that glows like a green lantern at night and artistic flourishes such as a 12-foot-high Robert Rauschenberg mural, 3-ton crystal chandeliers, and the Garden of Remembrance's gracious landscaping. Benaroya also has two concert halls, the 2,479 seat S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium and the intimate 536-seat Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall, both of which are designed for acoustic excellence and engineered to shut out external sounds.
