Article From Minerva Theater ~ Maastricht

ANDRE RIEU IN WONDERLAND

For the first time in its existence, the Andre Rieu production in conjunction with the Minerva Cinemas, will present one of his concerts on the big white screen in the cinema.
From Thursday 6 December to and including Wednesday 12 December the Minerva Cinema in Maastricht, will present a weeklong and exclusive showing of "Andre Rieu in Wonderland". It was remastered in sight and sound in High Definition for the cinema.


TO BE ENJOYED IN THE CINEMA IN HIGH DEFINITION
In his latest special, we see a totally different side of Andre Rieu than what we are accustomed to, that as an interpreter of Fairytales. Together with his orchestra, choir and many soloists, he conducted two wonderful concerts in the well known Dutch Fairytale Park, the "Efteling", in which the most enchanting melodies were incorporated. We hear and see fairytales from all over the world, from opera and operetta, musical, classical music, ballet and movie. Music from Hansel and Gretel, Swan lake, the Magic Flute, Land of the Smiles, Snow White, Peer Gynt, Mrs. Moon and many others. All of this in front of a real fairytale castle décor, with known fairytale characters, from princes and princesses to the Big Bad Wolf, the Witch and the Wizard.

Assisting in this special concert are: the young Australian opera star Mirusia Louwerse, sopranos Carla Maffioletti and Carmen Monarcha, musical star Suzan Erens, the Platin Tenors, American bass Brian Dickerson, soloists of the Vienna State Opera Ballet, the Volksmusikspatzen, the international Dance Theater and hundreds of fairytale characters.

"Andre Rieu in Wonderland", with its beautiful music and fantastically colorful figures, is a pure viewing and listening pleasure for young and old, is touching and compelling. But it would not be Andre, if there would not be things to laugh about.
A unique opportunity to watch and hear this wonderful special in High Definition

The reason for this presentation was an overwhelming response to a special closed viewing of the DVD, "Andre in Wonderland", which was presented on a large theater screen in high definition quality and sound. Andre Rieu as well as the theater management are in total agreement to have every Dutchman take advantage of and enjoy this fantastic spectacle in sight
and sound.

Thank you John for the translation of this!
