The South American concerts have been amazing, with record crowds and much adoration by the fans.
The next concert is tonight 10/26/13 at the Teatro Nacional in Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic and it’s a SELL OUT.
Teatro Nacional (English: National Theatre) is part of the Plaza de la Cultura (Culture Plaza) complex, located in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The theatre is the center piece of the complex and is surrounded by several museums and cultural institutions. The complex is located on the Avenida Máximo Gomez, a central artery of the city of Santo Domingo.
The theatre was designed by Dominican architect Teófilo Carbonell and it was opened on August 16, 1973. The theatre’s main hall, Sala Eduardo Brito, is named after a famous Dominican opera singer and seats 1,600 spectators. The 24 by 25 metres stage can easily accommodate 250 people, while the orchestra can seat 120 musicians. Another hall, Sala Ravelo, is named after a Dominican musician and can seat 189 spectators. This secondary hall is dedicated exclusively to theatrical productions.
The theatre’s facade is articulated by classic arches made of travertine marble. The building has four levels that, in addition to the two main halls, house the administrative offices, a reception hall, the Sala de la Cultura (Culture Hall) and a bar. The Sala de la Cultura, with a capacity of 220 spectators, was created for piano concerts, chamber concerts, symposia, seminars, and cultural events of similar scale.
Other institutions located within the building are the Biblioteca del Teatro (Theatre’s Library), which was funded by Cuban artist Teresita Jimenez and the French embassy, and the Centro de Recuperación, Conservación y Difusión de la Música Dominicana (Center for Recovery, Preservation and Dissemination of Dominican Music), which stores historical information related to Dominican music.
Twitters, Tweets and Keeks:
Gianluca tweeted yesterday, “Going to Dominican Republic!!”
He tweeted also, “70,000 followers!!” Is increasing day by day, THANK YOU!” Gianluca tweeted last night “I’m going to dream” see photo with tweet, another good one from him!
Piero tweeted. “Dinner with #IlVolo family, # happy Birthday Alessio!” See the photo on Twitter or on Mundial of the long table with Ignazio way down at the end with his arms in the air!! Why do I think everything he does is cute??
Ignazio tweeted yesterday, “At the airport, going to the Dominican Republic!!”
I think it bears repeating. Ignazio’s tweet the other day, “Received poster on stage “You changed my world” but the thing is YOU #Ivolovers changed our world!” I think it’s safe to say ALL of our worlds have been changed, theirs as well as ours. May I add it’s all for the better!!!!!
A piece of an interview on RAI noted on Mundial: “confirming part in major cathedral, Italian, special Christmas program in the first days of December” Please note this is translated from Spanish! I am thinking this could be the confirmation of the speculation that Il Volo would be participating in a Christmas Concert at the Vatican. Again remember it’s translated from Spanish and the Vatican is not specified!!!
Check Mundial for good photos and videos.
See articles on Team Il Volo “Il Volo delighted Guatemala” and “Il Volo flying in Honduras”
All things Il Volo also has nice photos and videos!
I received my “Buon Natale” CD today, can’t wait to listen to it!!
We love you Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca! We miss you being here in the US! Wish you love and luck tonight!!
