Es posible hacer esta comparación? Yo diría que no jejeje, Il Divo es incomparable son la unión perfecta de 4 voces maravillosas, 4 talentos indiscutibles, 4 personalidades que hacen enloquecer a cualquiera, es como si fueran los 4 elementos de la naturaleza.
Los integrantes de Il Volo tienen voces sorprendentes para su edad, que yo sigo sin creer que sean de ellos je je, pero ay algo que no me termina de gustar, tal vez en un futuro cuando ya tengan un repertorio más amplio pueda decir que me gustan por el momento solo me gustan dos canciones de ellos.
Aquí un reportaje (que ya se había tardado) comparando a Il Divo con Il Volo.
In what must be the most coincidental booking of the year, male operatic pop groups Il Divo and Il Volo both take to the Peabody Opera House stage next week, with Il Volo on Tuesday and Il Divo on Wednesday.
The two groups are so alike on the surface that it’s easy to confuse them. They share a musical genre, similar names, sweeping male harmonies and international flair. Both have performed on “American Idol” and have a connection to Barbra Streisand.
But there are distinct differences between the groups.
One group is a newcomer, the other a relative veteran. One group is made up of teenagers, the other includes men old enough to be their fathers. One is under the watchful eye of Simon Cowell, while the other sprung from a talent competition unrelated to Cowell.
Here’s a breakdown to help tell them apart:
Il Divo vs. Il Volo: Which is which

Sebastien Izambard: “The tour has been really great. People seem to be really enjoying it. We’re more relaxed and fun, and people are getting to know us better. We don’t do the same show over and over, and we try to play around with the audience as much as possible. … We’re really excited about the way the tour looks. We really wanted to have something quite simple, something that puts our music in perspective and doesn’t distract with special effects.”
Ignazio Boschetto: “It’s going to be fun because we’re not just singing and letting the people listen. We want to have fun. We want to smile. We want to cry. And we’re performing many songs.”

ON THE OTHER GUYS
Izambard: “We’ve never met them, ever, but we always hear about them. They’re very talented guys. We just hope people won’t make a mistake and go see Il Volo thinking they’re seeing Il Divo.”
Boschetto: “I know Il Divo because we like music, so we listen to them. But they’re different. You cannot compare. We are two different things. We have no problem with another artist who makes music that makes other people’s lives feel better.”
