CinemaLive, in cooperation with André Rieu Productions, Fathom Events and Universal Music Enterprises, is proud to present André Rieu’s 2015 Maastricht Concert, a spectacular cinematic music event with the world’s leading pop classical artist.
Set amongst the breathtaking setting of Rieu’s hometown of Maastricht in The Netherlands, this magical concert event provides an unforgettable evening full of humor, grand emotion, and glorious music for every age. The 2015 Maastricht Concert, which has already broken box office records in the UK, The Netherlands, Denmark and Australia, will be screened in more than 200 cinemas across the U.S. for one night on Tuesday, October 20 at 7 p.m. (local time).
The concert features André Rieu’s famous 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, his sopranos, tenors, and some very special guests. Highlights include Australian soprano Mirusia Louwerse, whom André calls the ‘Angel of Australia,’ powerful trio The Platin Tenors, and enchanting music, including Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again, the stirring This Land is Mine from Exodus, and, of course, André’s signature waltz, The Blue Danube. Also seen on screen are Rieu’s legions of fans, who have gathered from around the world to experience the concert in person.
The event boasts extra features specifically for cinema audiences including an exclusive interview with André moments after he steps off stage, conducted by British TV presenter and CinemaLive host Charlotte Hawkins.
