University of Kent,
Help celebrate the 10th Anniversary of André Rieu’s traditional summer evening concerts, staged on the most romantic city square in The Netherlands: the Vrijthof in Maastricht! Be prepared for emotions to soar, during one of the most extraordinary concerts of the year as the maestro puts on a magnificent spectacle during this very special anniversary edition of his much-loved concerts.
One of the most popular live acts in the world, the King of Waltz 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!
The dramatic and alluring medieval square will be transformed into a romantic open-air concert, featuring André and his famous 60 piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, along with many famous guest artists, soloists, light shows and spectacular fireworks.
André said: "My 10th Anniversary hometown concert is very dear to my heart and I wish everyone could be here to help us celebrate. However, if you can't join us in Maastricht, I hope I can touch your heart by bringing this special evening to you, on the big screen in your local cinema."
The concert is approximately 2hrs 40 mins including a 15 minute interval.
The satellite delivered concert is recorded several days prior to the cinema screening, during André Rieu's 2014 Maastricht Concert summer season.
Spoken parts in English and Dutch with some English subtitles supplied.
