Affectionately known as ‘The King of Waltz’, André performs every year in front of thousands of fans set amongst the beautiful medieval backdrop of his beautiful home town of Maastricht, in The Netherlands. As always, André is joined by his famous Johann Strauss Orchestra, his sopranos, tenors and some very special guests. The Maastricht concerts are André’s most popular concerts of the year and 2015 is shaping up to be his biggest and most spectacular concert ever to be screened in cinemas.
One of the most popular live acts in the world, André will be working his magic to present an unforgettable evening full of humour, music and emotion for every age. Be swept away with the incredible atmosphere, which attracts audiences from every corner of the globe who come together to share and experience beautiful music, song, laughter, dancing and a few tears.
When asked if André had a message for his fans around the world, he said: “I am so delighted that my hometown Maastricht concert will once again be coming to cinemas in July! It’s going to be an incredible evening – and I can promise you it will be a musical night to remember. If you can’t join us in Maastricht, we will come to you, in your local cinema.”
As always, CinemaLive’s programme will feature a host who will introduce the show as well as conduct an interview with André the moment he steps off stage, exclusively for cinema audiences.
The concert is approximately three hours including a 15 minute interval. Spoken parts in English and Dutch with some English subtitles supplied.
The satellite delivered concert is recorded several days prior to the cinema screening, during André Rieu’s 2015 Maastricht Concert summer season.
