THE King of the Waltz, André Rieu, is back on the big screen this summer live from Maastricht at cinemas across Dorset with his new production Amore – My Tribute to Love.
The renowned Dutch violinist said: “I will be playing all kinds of pieces during the concert; wonderful waltzes will be heard but also outstanding arias from famous operas, beloved melodies from movies and musicals, and so much more. It’ll be performed by my Johann Strauss Orchestra, the Platin Tenors and several soloists with worldwide fame and name. And of course, as every year, there will be an special surprise guest.”
Last year’s production broke another cinema record for attendance figures. Andre likes to get people acquainted with his concerts across the world. “Thousands of men and women from over 80 nations come to Maastricht which makes me very proud. This year we will be performing a record-breaking 13 open air concerts and expect 150,000 people. But I also heard messages from abroad, that people were dancing in the aisles of the cinemas. Isn’t that great? It is a rather new concept, classical concerts in cinemas. I always try to give people something for the eye as well so I am very proud and happy about the popularity of my concerts on the big screen.”
André who has performed with his orchestra for over 30 years added: “My orchestra feels like a big family, I call them like that affectionately since we share everything during the long periods of touring abroad.”
n Amore – My Tribute to Love will be screened at Odeon Bournemouth, Cineworld Poole, Poole Lighthouse, Regent Centre Christchurch and Tivoli Theatre Wimborne at 7pm on July 28 and at 3pm on July 29.
