Self-confessed romantic André Rieu has chosen Valentine’s Day to communicate with his legion of fans worldwide, to wish them love and happiness, and share the news that his eagerly awaited ‘Love in Maastricht’ DVD will be out soon – view filmed message at https://andrerieu.wetransfer.com/downloads/570ecd0fa09e7def804a3e8d5855812320190213085251/103ff085d30821f50fff97035f83605020190213085251/564fc1
In Australia and New Zealand, the DVD will release on March 22.
‘Love in Maastricht’ was filmed in the Maestro’s hometown in early July 2018. During a record thirteen live concerts in his annual summer series, André Rieu thrilled more than 150,000 fans from 80 countries on Maastricht’s magnificent medieval square, the Vrijthof.
Twenty-eight cameras captured the most memorable and emotional moments on the stage and among concertgoers over three days. The concert broke box office records when it screened in cinemas in late July 2018, shortly after it was filmed.
With thirty fantastic tracks, the DVD features romantic waltzes, popular arias such as ‘Nessun Dorma’ from Giacomo Puccini, world-famous melodies including ‘Granada’, ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, the ‘Snow Waltz’, and the ‘Radetzky March’; and global hits including ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’, and interpretations of ‘You Raise Me Up’ and ‘Lara’s Theme’ from the classic film ‘Doctor Zhivago’.
Special guests included Los del Rio, who with their global hit ‘Macarena’, turned the Vrijthof into one of the largest open-air dance floors in the world, crowned by an amazing firework display in the night sky over Maastricht.
The ‘Love in Maastricht’ DVD, on sale widely from 22 March, reawakens the magic of these unique concerts. Experience André Rieu in the comfort of your living room, with his famous 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, international sopranos, the Platin Tenors, and Los del Rio – in the Netherlands’ most beautiful square!
‘Love in Maastricht’ DVD available March 22.
