Il Volo is considered an heir to Three Tenors.
After successful tours of North and South America and Europe, the Il Volo opera trio, consisting of baritone Gianluca Ginoble (23) and tenors Piero Barone (25) and Ignazio Boschetto (23), will perform in Croatia later this year, reports Večernji List on August 23, 2018.
The Italian sensation will perform at the Zagreb Arena on December 21. That will be their first concert in Croatia.
The popular trio has won over fans around the globe in a very short time. Due to their beautiful voices, the trio is rightly called an heir of the Three Tenors. They started their careers in 2009, as teenagers in the talent show “Ti lascio una canzone”. At first, they performed as soloists, but then director of the show Roberto Cenci came up with an idea of combining them in a trio modelled on the Three Tenors (Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti).
Their performance caught the attention of music producer Tony Renis, an Italian who lives in Los Angeles, and he immediately offered them an exclusive contract. Il Volo thus became the first Italian act to directly sign a contract with an American record label.
Il Volo released the first album for the European, American and Latin American markets in 2010. They confirmed their global status with appearances on some of the most popular television shows, such as American Idol, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show, America’s Got Talent, The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
In the first week, they reached the tenth position on the Billboard 200 list of the best albums, which catapulted them to the very top of the music industry, which was further confirmed by two nominations for the Latin American Grammy awards, as the best new artists and the best album.
So far, they have released five albums, some of them in collaboration with Placido Domingo and Eros Ramazzotti, and have also completed 11 tours.
Three years ago, Il Volo won the Sanremo Music Festival with the song “Grande Amore”. For the past two years, they have been working on the Notte Magica project, which is dedicated to Domingo, Carreras and Pavarotti. Domingo participated in the project as a performer and conductor, and the album includes some of the most famous songs they ever sang.
Last year, they launched their world tour. After 15 sold out US concerts, they had 29 performances in Europe and South America. The tour was also filmed for a documentary which will be screened at more than 500 cinemas around the world.
The Zagreb audience will be able to enjoy their performance on December 21, and the tickets for the concert cost from 220 kuna.
