RECORD-BREAKING violinist Andre Rieu’s 2017 Maastricht concert will be screened via satellite at Evesham’s Regal Cinema.
Known for his energetic and spell-binding live performances, as well as amassing more than 40 million album and DVD sales worldwide, Rieu has announced his annual Maastricht concert will once again be beamed into UK cinemas in celebration of his 30th year in music.
The Regal will play host to the festival of music on Saturday, July 22 from 7pm, Sunday, July 23 from 3pm and Sunday, July 30 at 3pm.
The Dutch violinist is one of the world’s highest-grossing touring artists, and every year performs in his hometown of Maastricht to tens of thousands who travel from all over the globe to experience one of the most emotionally engulfing live music experiences possible.
The Maastricht concert features the maestro in his element, with his famous 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, sopranos, tenors and very special guests.
“When I founded the Johann Strauss Orchestra in 1987, there were only twelve orchestra members – now there are more than 60 people on stage!,” he said.
“Although a lot has changed, there is one thing which has never changed: the joy of playing together, whether in a small group or a big orchestra.
“We are so much looking forward to bringing this joy again this year to your cinema in July. The program will be very diverse, reflecting this special anniversary,” he added.
Tickets for The Regal’s screenings of André Rieu’s 2017 Maastricht Concert are available from £15 each at www.theregal.ac or by calling the Box Office on 01386 421007.
