This concert tour is promoted by Live Nation and supports the group’s sixth studio album A Musical Affair, their first compilation of songs inspired by Broadway shows such as Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel and West Side Story (music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim). “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.” The show was developed by long-term Il Divo collaborator and artistic director Brian Burke.
“A joyous experience from start to finish, Il Divo is an affair that deserves to be seen, enjoyed, and embraced by everyone who appreciates good music brilliantly sung by professionals at the top of their game.” ̶ The Epoch Times

ABOUT THE PITTSBURGH CULTURAL TRUST
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has overseen one of Pittsburgh’s most historic transformations: turning a seedy red-light district into a magnet destination for arts lovers, residents, visitors, and business owners. Founded in 1984, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a non-profit arts organization whose mission is the cultural and economic revitalization of a 14-block arts and entertainment/residential neighborhood called the Cultural District. The District is one of the country’s largest land masses “curated” by a single nonprofit arts organization. A major catalytic force in the city, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is a unique model of how public-private partnerships can reinvent a city with authenticity, innovation and creativity. Using the arts as an economic catalyst, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has holistically created a world-renowned Cultural District that is revitalizing the city, improving the regional economy and enhancing Pittsburgh’s quality of life. Thanks to the support of foundations, corporations, government agencies and thousands of private citizens, the Trust stands as a national model of urban redevelopment through the arts.
