Andre Rieu’s movie is in Jozitown for two shows only

Dutch violinist and composer André Rieu returns each year to his hometown, Maastricht in the Netherlands, for a series of summer evening concerts. Commenting on this year’s event, 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”.

This movie is nearly three hours long – well including the interval.  Three hours of pleasure.  The 60 piece orchestra seems bigger.  The singers are fabulous.  The vibe for a movie is great.  It is almost as wonderful as being at one of his 100 plus concerts a year.

In 2015 he made more than $51 million.  That’s a lot of money for one year. It is a lot of fans, a lot of concerts, a lot of work, but most of all, a lot of love from people who will pay good money to watch other audience members waltz in the aisles to The Blue Danube.  One either loves or hates Andre Rieu.  I suspect that a lot of the hate is a case of sour grapes.

I am a devoted fan.

Andre Rieu’s 2016 Maastrict Concert is showing at Cinema Nouveau on 15 and 16 October 2016.
