Waltz king beams to Prossie stage

SIMULCAST from Holland straight to the Proserpine Entertainment Centre this weekend is the "King of Waltz".

André Rieu is one of the world's most popular music artists.

His legendary annual Maastricht concert is the most eagerly anticipated cinema event of the year, last year setting new box office records in several countries.

Set against the stunning medieval backdrop of the town square in Mr Rieu's Dutch hometown, the spectacular Maastricht concert features the maestro in his element, along with his world-famous 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, sopranos, tenors and very special guests.

Mr Rieu promises and delivers an unforgettable musical experience full of humour, fun and emotion for all ages.

"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," he said.

"We put a lot of time, energy and love into creating something special, some Maastricht magic."

CinemaLive's presentation of Mr Rieu's 2016 Maastricht Concert in Cinemas features host Charlotte Hawkins, who introduces the show and conducts an interview with André Rieu the moment he steps off stage, exclusively for cinema audiences.

The satellite delivered three-hour concert, including a 15-minute interval, is recorded several days prior to the cinema screening and is not to be missed by lovers of the waltz in Proserpine this weekend.
