Mark your calendars for a sonorous and unforgettable musical evening in the cloud capped climes of Genting Highlands as Denise, Isabella, Vittoria and Sofia, otherwise known as Le Div4s, are in Malaysia for one night only on Christmas Day.
The four Italian sopranos have been causing sonic waves since making their debut with maestro Andrea Bocelli in 2008, playing to packed out audiences in notable locations around the world. The classically trained all-female ensemble deliver an innovative take on some of the most famous operatic highlights, including renowned pieces by Mozart, Bellini, Verdi and Puccini, injecting each piece with their own distinctive flavour and creating aural scapes never before heard.
Their repertoire expands further to cover timeless Italian and international songs, rebooted and remixed with pop rhythms and tempos. In 2011, Le Div4s struck a milestone with the release of their first CD, Opera, to critical acclaim. Joining a slew of prominent artists, including Seal, Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall, Nile Rogers and Chic, they were the only Italian artists to be invited to appear alongside the collective at the European Tour of the Night of the Proms 2011, where they first aired the new release.
Moving swiftly on to 2012, the Opera Tour saw them appear in front of hundreds of thousands of fans on prestigious stages on every continent. The Moscow International Music Centre, the Prague Smetana Hall and the Venice International Film Festival are only a few of the famed locations that were lucky enough to witness their showcase.
The group has gone on to perform multiple times alongside Bocelli – most recently on his triumphant UK and Ireland Tour in 2012 – by playing in Dublin, Belfast, Liverpool and Birmingham, before journeying on to Brazil where the open air Jockey Club in Sao Paolo saw over 20,000 people throng the grounds to catch their exquisite versions of renowned operatic arias.
Despite their intense touring schedule, the foursome make each show a wholly unique one that bursts with energy, bringing to the table timbres, vibratory patterns and vocal folds that remain unequalled. We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to end the year than with a scintillating concert by the four divas. Catch them this month and make your Christmas an extra special one.
