André Rieu Magical Maastricht: Together In Music

André Rieu is back in cinemas to help lift your spirits!

André Rieu’s Magical Maastricht celebrates 15 years of André’s glorious hometown concerts. The King of the Waltz has selected his most spectacular performances and emotional songs and will bring the joyous atmosphere of his iconic open-air concerts in Maastricht straight to Norden Farm.

No summer is complete without the enchanting waltzes of André Rieu and the incomparable Johann Strauss Orchestra. Music brings people together, brings hope and brings joy - and we need this now more than ever!

Cinema host Charlotte Hawkins will be joined by André Rieu for an exclusive interview from The Vrijthof Square in Maastricht revealing how life has changed for the maestro during the global pandemic and what it means for the future. How is he coping in isolation as a musician, a father and a grandfather? This is the best way to get up close and personal with André!

Join André Rieu, the Johann Strauss Orchestra, his world-class sopranos and The Platin Tenors for the most uplifting concert of the summer. It promises to be the heart-warming event of the season!
