Due to overwhelming popular demand, this unforgettable concert experience features ‘The King of Waltz’ and his famous 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra as they dramatically transform the medieval square in Rieu’s hometown of Maastricht in the Netherlands into a romantic open-air concert venue with dazzling light shows, spectacular fireworks and sublime music.
The concert features many notable guest artists and soloists, including 30 year-old Australian soprano Mirusia Louwerse, whom André calls the “Angel of Australia” and Tasmanian-born tenor Gary Bennett, who has been performing with André for ten years.
Some of the many highlights of André Rieu’s 2015 Maastricht Concert in Cinemas include Mirusia’s deeply emotional rendition of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again’; the stirring ‘This Land is Mine’ from Exodus; world-renowned Romanian panpipe master Gheorghe Zamfir leading an incredible performance of ‘The Lonely Shepherd’; André’s signature waltz ‘The Blue Danube’ and many more.
André Rieu’s 2015 Maastricht Concert in Cinemas runs for 3 hours, including a 15-minute intermission. As always, CinemaLive’s programme features CinemaLive host Charlotte Hawkins, who introduces the concert and interviews André the moment he steps off stage, exclusively for cinema audiences.
