IL VOLO with PLÁCIDO DOMINGO
Notte Magica, a Tribute to The Three Tenors
After winning over the global public on their tour through Europe, the U.S. and South America, Il Volo returned to Italy for a magical night of music, paying tribute to another famous trio, The Three Tenors. This trio of young Italian tenors, today’s operatic pop phenomenon, have delighted audiences in prestigious venues worldwide.
Una Notte Magica was the name of the legendary concert performed in 1990 by three tenors — José Carreras, Plácido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti — and now, 26 years later, Il Volo came to Florence to commemorate them. This unique tribute event took place in Piazza Santa Croce, one of the most beautiful plazas in Florence, accompanied by the great Teatro Massimo di Palermo Orchestra and with Plácido Domingo himself as a special guest conductor.
Il Volo’s Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble are joined by Plácido Domingo, who conducts a symphony orchestra for select pieces. Having received intensive classical training for months prior to the event, Il Volo sing in true operatic style, honoring the legend of the Three Tenors and bringing classical music to new audiences. Not one of the trio was born when The Three Tenors first performed, but they grew up listening to them, being fascinated and inspired by their voices and legendary achievements. Now, Il Volo delivers this music to a younger audience so they can experience the same emotions from that long ago magical night.
