Fall in love again with André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra as they bring you a colourful concert with over two-hours of beautiful melodies under the star-studded summer skies. Once again André Rieu transformed the Vrijthof square in his hometown Maastricht into a grand, romantic open-air concert hall with room for about ten thousand people for his traditional summer evening concerts.
André returns to Maastricht bringing with him two wonderful guest choirs -- the Harlem Gospel Choir and the Soweto Gospel Choir -- and a very special guest: Oscar-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins! The Hollywood-based star is a great admirer of André Rieu and wrote a piece called "And The Waltz Goes On" specially with Rieu in mind. André Rieu performed it in Maastricht for the first time for such a large crowd.
One of the stunning spectacles of the night is soprano soloist Mirusia Louwerse performing Mary Poppins' "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and flying through the air, high above the wonder-struck audience.
"Under The Stars" contains 24 tracks and guest appearances by the South African Soweto Gospel Choir, The Harlem Gospel Choir, the St. Petersburg trio, local act 'Ziesjoem', Rieu's sopranos Mirusia Louwerse, Kimmy Skota and the Platin tenors in a romantic summer evening setting.
From spirituals to musicals, and folk songs to waltzes; this is a glorious and thrilling celebration of music!
