Internationally celebrated as the “Waltz King”, the Dutch superstar violinist André Rieu has been one of the most successful international acts for 30 years. The charismatic international star thrills his fans with the perfect mix of waltzes, film music, musicals, opera and pop music hits on 23 February in the Olympic Hall.
Evenings with André Rieu provide perfect entertainment through well-known, romantic melodies, as well as a number of surprises, with much humour and top international soloists. Rieu’s onstage charisma and passion guarantee a unique experience. Rieu, together with his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra which celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2017, has created a worldwide revival of waltz music. His concerts are among the few where people of all ages and nationalities sing along and dance in the aisles.
Rieu’s story is one of superlatives: the “Maestro for the Masses” (Wall Street Journal) has sold over 40 million CDs and DVDs, topped the world charts 30 times, and has received more than 500 platinum awards and three Brit-Awards for the “Album of the Year”. His Johann Strauss Orchestra is the largest private orchestra in the world, with musicians from ten countries.
