13 Feb 2014
Tony and Olivier Award winner Lea Salonga will join Il Divo as a guest star during the group's A Musical Affair World Tour shows in Korea, Japan and North America.
The international quartet features tenor Urs Buhler of Switzerland, baritone Carlos Marin of Spain, pop artist Sébastien Izambard of France and tenor David Miller from the United States.
In a statement Salonga said, “I am thrilled to be joining Il Divo as they continue their Musical Affair Tour worldwide. Having such a passion for musical theatre since an early age myself, I cannot imagine a more talented group to join forces with to share these timeless songs with audiences of all ages. And it doesn’t hurt that they are so handsome to look at too.”
Izambard added, “We’ve been following Lea’s extraordinary career for years and are huge fans. It’s an honour that we can finally share a stage and our love of music together for these legs of the tour. We’re looking forward to these enchanting performances.”
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
