Classical music and opera, genres that have transcended throughout history, Italy being their cradle, have always been associated with the most mature or knowledgeable public. However, Il Volo, the trio of Belcanto-loving Italian musicians, have dismantled this myth, bringing their passion for classical and romantic ballads to the listening of the younger generation. 
The baritone Gianluca Ginoble and the tenors Ignazio Boschetto and Piero Barone have shown since 2010, with their first debut, that the love for this type of music is ageless.
After four years away from the Dominican stage, and ten years after their first time in Santo Domingo, the classical musical trio returned this Wednesday the 29th with “Il Volo Live in Concert”, under the production of Cesar Suarez Pizano.
Their show achieved a “full house” in the main hall of the Eduardo Brito National Theater, where adults, youth and even children came together to enjoy these memorable voices.
The stage opened its curtains at 8:55 p.m., at which time, among the lights, the applause, and the excited shouts of the audience, Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto, and Gianluca Ginoble, appeared before the public as a whole of the orchestra. symphony, which was under the baton of Amaury Sánchez.
They opened the night with a tribute to Ennio Morricone’s memorable piece “The Ecstasy of Gold”, followed by “Nessun Dorma” from Puccini’s Turandot, an emblematic aria within lyrical singing.
 ”Buonasera tutti, buonasera!”, they exclaimed in their native language when appearing before the public. The three young people showed great presence on stage, it is inevitable to bring out the great sense of humor that this trio possess, who, between jokes, anecdotes and stories, broke the ice and won the sympathy of each of the spectators, because if something can characterize this show would be the laughter, the warmth and the contact with the public.
Among their repertoire, apart from paying homage to pieces of classical art, they also included songs from their most recent album, three voices, one soul, interpreting hits such as “Forgive me” or “Tan enamored”. Likewise, they paid tribute to the great Latin classics and the legendary artists of Hispanic music, giving life to songs by Julio Iglesias, José José, Luis Miguel, among others.
 Il Volo, although it is known for being a musical trio since its inception, it is also true that each one of its members has a marked personality and distinctive character, for this reason, for approximately 5 years they have decided to give a space in their concerts for that everyone can express their tastes and open up personally with their viewers.
This event has not been the exception, since halfway through the presentation, everyone had the opportunity to interpret their favorite piece, beginning with Ignazio, who sang “All by myself” by the iconic Celine Dion.
He was followed by Gianluca, who sang “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by the legend Elvis Presley, who he noted was his greatest inspiration to follow his dreams in music. Finally, Piero sang the notes of a piece of classical lyrical art.
The concert lasted approximately two and a half hours, in which the public remained euphoric and energetic until closing. At the end of the concert, Il Volo said goodbye with a final performance of “Volare”, the classic Italian song that brought the entire audience to their feet to dance and sing along.


Here’s what People music Puerto Rico writes:
“Italians Il Volo close their world tour in Puerto Rico🇵🇷.
Voice trio Il Volo closes its world tour in Puerto Rico.”
and Puerto Rico Magazine:
“The Coca Cola Music Hall was the setting for the presentation of the famous, authentic and prestigious Italian trio composed by Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble, as part of their long concert tour which toured the whole world and culminated in Puerto Rico, where they also took the opportunity to celebrate their 14 years of music.” 




Incredible moments



Il Volo posted this beautiful video made in Mexico with these words: Thanks Latin-America, it was amazing!!

Gianluca instead wrote these beautiful words:  (what a sweet and deep man )

“Music has given meaning to my life. The goal has never been to desire and pursue ephemeral concepts such as fame, success or money, but to do what makes me happy and serene and express my essence.
But to understand who we are we need to get to know each other, dig deep into our inner self, dialogue with ourselves daily to discover what our vocation is and persevere in the search for what we were born to do, always recognizing our potential and humbly our limits and with tenacity and ambition everything else will come by itself…
Thank you for the love you have shown us every day since the beginning of this wonderful journey. ✨
With love, Gianluca”

The tour is over, but the fans still manage to amaze with their affection:
And still some fans (note that they are also male, not only female), waited for Il Volo after the concert and as they passed they started singing Il Mondo. Obviously Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero stopped to talk to them.
Gianluca also posted this photo of the team that follows Il Volo.

Between hugs, screams, emotions, love, lots of love, the tour is over.
I would say it was crazy, theaters were packed, tickets were sold out on very short notice. The people were enthusiastic and Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio, euphoric for the affection received, for the reconfirmation of what had already happened in the past, despite the forced arrest by Covid.
Surely this tour, also attended by a lot of young people, both male and female, has given a big boost to Il Volo’s pride, which has understood that the road is right, that there really is room for their type of music, and that it is not only relegated to mature people.

Now Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca are at home in Italy, you would think a well-deserved rest…….but no, on Friday 7th April they will be guests of a new television show and then there are the two concerts in Verona to prepare.
“Guys, you are truly tireless and this does you credit.”
But I want to finish this long post with the beautiful words of Luz Adriana Toro Arango, which you will surely appreciate a lot.

Nicaragua: Il Volo regresa más maduro ~~ http://www.elnuevodiario.com.ni


Interview. The New Diary spoke with Gianluca Ginoble, member of the Italian trio about their quick visit to the country where they have 2 concerts.

The 15th and 16th of April, the operatic pop trio return to Nicaragua for part of their “Grande Amore” tour that, for them, means so much emotionally. “We love Managua, her supportive fans and the beautiful women”, said Gianluca Ginoble, one of the members of the Italian trio.

He knows that a lot of time has passed since their last visit to the country and now that they have the opportunity to return, they want to share a little bit of Italy and their culture.

“For us it is very important because this year we’ve had changes, not entirely, but we’ve grown more professionally. This album, for example, represents us 100%. There are new songs, unknown like “Grande Amore”. (For which) we won the San Remo Festival, and there are also ballads”.

The Album

“Grande Amore” is an album for all ages “and that’s because at our concerts, a variety of people come, it can be enjoyed as a family because it’s a vast music collection that moves older people with memories of the past and the new generations discover new musical genres”, noted Gianluca.

The pop lyrical trio will be on tour in various Latin American countries. Upon arriving in Puerto Rico, they said that at their concerts “we always expect to have a good time, but most of all, to entertain the people because for us, to come to our concert is to bring our custom, our way of being… We always want to bring the culture of our country, the music of our country.”

They have approximately 7 years as a pop lyric trio.  On the other hand, they specified that what differentiates them from other young groups is to precisely tackle a music generation where it’s not common that young people are interested. In their opinion, that’s one way to bring classical music to the young generations.

The Date

Il Volo will perform at La Sala Mayor del Teatro Nacional Rubén Darío for 2 consecutive nights. The concert in Nicaragua comes to you by Blu Productions with the support of Banpro and Claro. Tickets, which are currently on sale, cost 40 – 120 dollars (plus service charges).

Il Volo is scheduled for 30 concerts on this “Grande Amore” tour.

Hi Everyone,

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!!
