An Evening With Il Divo: Live In Barcelona [CD+DVD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
A live performance available as either a BluRay or a DVD/CD set, Live in Barcelona captures Il Divo's April 3, 2009, performance at Palau Sant Jordi. The video portions contain the complete 24-track performance; the CD is a truncated ten-cut sampler, designed as a bonus rather than the main attraction. That main attraction is the extravaganza captured on video, where the operatic quartet runs through all manners of pop standards -- "Bridge Over Troubled Water," "Unbreak My Heart," "Nights in White Satin," "The Winner Takes It All," "My Way," "The Impossible Dream" -- sometimes translating the lyrics out of English so they feel more like opera. Naturally, this live set won't convince doubters, but those who have loved ...

    Il Divo Live in Barcelona

    This is the first time that I have heard them. The voices are beautiful and the music is great. Although I don't speak the different languages, I can listen and enjoy. I have ordered The Promise and am sure it will be great also.

    Beautiful!

    Simon Cowel really brought a new genre from Opera to the forefront mixing Pop and Opera with the voices of these four Tenors. The arrangements seem flawless as does the absolute harmony.

    Barcelona was not the best venue for Il Divo

    As a long time fan of Il Divo, Barcelona was disappointing. Stage lighting is poor, videography is amateruish, blazing icons were distracting making it hard to enjoy the beauty of the music.
    I do not recommend this video. Buy Il Divo Live at the Greek. It's the best.

    Il Divo - the Ultimate in musical entertainment

    Il Divo has become my all time favoite vocal entertainment. They present classical music with a pop song occassionaly thrown in. Even if you don't speak Italian, Spanish or French the sound and harmony they produce makes the music totally enoyable. I have all of their CD's/DVD's
    and await more.

    An Evening fwith Il Divo: Live in Barcelona

    An Il Divo fan will enjoy the DVD and CD just like the other ones.
    Friends of mine who have not seen or heard them before have all become fans. I would like some more originality in the presentation, but they still are an inspiring foursome.

    Il Divo Live is magnificent.

    While there are 9 or 10 songs on the CD, there are 22 on the Live Performance DVD. I wish rhe CD had more songs. Also, the songs on the CD are in a differenr order than the live performance. I also wish they would include english translations of the songs not sung in English. With those criticisms said, the songs were well chosen and the singing superb. They seem to really enjoy performing for their audience and interacting with them. Overall, the DVD is a joy to watch.

    Il Divo Fan

    I was a little disappointed in this DVD only by the fact in the way it was filmed. There were too many long shots and way too many shots of the audience. My purpose of buying the DVD is to watch the guys sing their songs. And, having seen this concert here in the U.S. it brought back wonderful memories and the songs were just as wonderful as I remembered in person.

    Disappointing

    I agree with the three star rating that has been given by listeners so far. While I love the Il Divo sound, I was less than thrilled with the DVD of their performance. A little more humility would be nice.

    First disc wonderful

    Unfortunately I have received two orders and neither disc 2 will play in anything I have. Am I the only one? Disc 1 is everything I expected from Il Divo, but would really like to hear disc 2!
