The Italian operatic pop trio Il Volo, consisting of baritone Gianluca Ginoble with tenors Piero Barone and Ignazio Boschetto, will be performing in front of the Cathedral on 1 August, along with their backup band, while orchestral accompaniment will be made up of Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra members. The concert, which has attracted a lot of public interest, will start at 9.30pm.
Along with the highest production quality, an unforgettable programme and a unique musical experience await all concert-goers. Il Volo are coming to Dubrovnik on the occasion of the Festival’s 70th anniversary, in organization by the City of Dubrovnik, Star Productions and the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, and as a part of their world tour Musica Tour on which they are promoting their new album of the same name, Musica (Sony music).
The trio, who are celebrating their 10th anniversary this year, were discovered by Plácido Domingo while working together on the Notte Magica project, an hommage to the original Three Tenors – Domingo, Carreras and Pavarotti. In 2015, Il Volo won the Sanremo Music Festival with the song Grande amore with which they also won third place at the Eurovision Song Contest.
In January this year, the year of their big anniversary, they performed in Panama on the World Youth Day where they dedicated Ave Maria to Pope Francis. Their celebrations will continue on the whole year with concerts all over the world and tours of South America, North America and Japan.
