The magneto-optical properties of the ferromagnetic semiconductor Ga$_{1-x}$Mn$_{x}$As are studied within the dynamical mean-field approximation (DMFA). A material-specific multiband $sp^{3}$ tight-binding Hamiltonian is employed for the dispersion of the GaAs host. The calculated density of states shows an impurity band and a distorted valence band for large and moderate values of magnetic coupling, respectively. Upon using the more realistic band structure, the ferromagnetic transition temperature is significantly closer to the experimental results than the previous predictions of $k\cdot p$ models. The optical conductivity shows a Drude-like peak at low frequencies which is suppressed by increasing of the magnetic coupling.
