André Rieu will perform from Maastricht

André Rieu is one of the world’s most popular music artists. His annual Maastricht concert is one of the most eagerly anticipated cinema events of the year, setting new box office records in several countries in 2015.

Set against the medieval backdrop of the town square in André’s Dutch hometown, the spectacular Maastricht concert features the maestro in his element, along with his world-famous 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, sopranos, tenors and very special guests.

André promises an unforgettable musical experience full of humour, fun and emotion for all ages.

André said: “Every year we find ways to make my hometown concerts a unique experience for our audiences in the square, as well as those who watch us in the cinemas. We put a lot of time, energy and love into creating something special, some Maastricht magic.

CinemaLive’s presentation of André Rieu’s 2016 Maastricht Concert in Cinemas features host Charlotte Hawkins, who introduces the show and conducts an interview with André Rieu the moment he steps off stage, exclusively for cinema audiences.

Andre added that audiences should expect “a romantic evening full of humour, the world’s most beloved melodies, waltzes, many international soloists, fireworks and unforgettable moments.”

“I hope they will enjoy the concerts as much as we do. It’s a fantastic opportunity to ‘join’ us in Maastricht. I just hope everyone will have a lot of fun.”

The concert lasts about three hours, including a 15-minute interval.

The concert, broadcast via satellite, is recorded several days before the cinema screening, during André Rieu’s 2016 Maastricht Concert summer season.

The concert will be screened at 3pm and 7pm on Sunday July 24, and at the same times on Saturday July 30.
