Il Destino is the coming together of two renowned singers; International Tenor and platinum selling recording artist Jon Christos and the award winning celebrated west end/broadway star Adam Lacey. They first met whilst individually performing for The Inspiration Awards at London’s Cadogan Hall in 2012 where they became friends and have been working together ever since. Over the last two years their new and critically acclaimed shows have taken them across the UK and Europe as well as The States where they have also performed at a variety of prestigious events and theatres across the globe at land and sea.
With their combined love of Opera, Musical Theatre, Classical Crossover, Pop and Swing hits as well as songs from The Silver Screen they decided to create a duo that showcases these genres but in a unique and special way. Individually, their two voices have their own exceptional qualities but when they come together despite the contrast of their two tones you hear but one voice. Add to this to their stunning harmonies, their innovative approach to their material, their infectious personalities and the variety of styles and genres on offer then it is hardly surprising they are in such demand all over the world.
Their shows lend themselves to all types of venues ranging from the grandeur of theatres as well as those on board cruise ships to more intimate venues. They feature songs from the repertoire of Il Divo, Andrea Bocelli, Alfie Boe, The Three Tenors, Russell Watson, Queen, and from Broadway hit shows such as Les Misérables, Phantom of the Opera as well as the classics from Rodgers and Hammerstein. They also include in their shows surprises thrown in from their love of Elvis Presley, The Rat Pack, Michael Bublé as well as other hit pop classics from over the years literally offering something for everyone and guaranteed to offer the wow factor to their audiences.
Examples of songs that feature in their usual show; O Sole Mio, Funiculi Funicula, Nessun Dorma, Surrender, The Show Must Go On, Unchained Melody, Things, Cry me a River, Sound of Silence, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, Bring him Home, A Rodgers and Hammerstein Medley, Parla piu Piano (The Godfather), Night’s in White Satin, A mi Manera (My Way) and many more which can be performed to orchestral backing track or up to 9 piece live band supported by Orchestral click track for that showpiece sound.
They perform a variety of shows ranging from ‘Broadway and Beyond’, ‘Beyond Swing’, A Night at the Oscars, Viva Italia and their new tribute to ‘Boe&Ball’ showcasing the current success of the duo Alfie Boe and Michael Ball. They can also add a female singer to their lineup and perform their show ‘License to Thrill’ showcasing all the hits from the James Bond films from over the years. They also offer a mix and match set where if your desire is to get them up dancing they have an ‘On The Dance Floor’ set tailored for that very thing.
