André Rieu Takes a Musical Trip to "Wonderland" on U.S. Tour!


SANTA MONICA, CA -- 04/07/08 -- Incomparable Dutch maestro Andre Rieu is set to embark on a tour of the U.S. to celebrate the release of "ANDRE RIEU IN WONDERLAND," an all new blockbuster production from the stalwart crowd pleaser and "Waltz King." There has always been an element of fantasy in Andre's productions and with this new PBS pledge drive special, he takes audiences young and old on a bona fide magical trip with whimsical music and transporting visuals. More than any other of his phenomenally successful concerts, this production is geared toward children of all ages -- the perfect evening out for kids, parents and even grandparents. The tour kicks off April 15th in Chicago and continues through the end of May (dates listed below).

Recorded at Efteling, a beautiful fairy-tale theme park located in central Holland, "ANDRE RIEU IN WONDERLAND" is a showcase for Rieu, his orchestra, dancers and special guest soloists. The DVD and CD capture performances taken from or inspired by classic fairy tales such as Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, Swan Lake, The Magic Flute, The Old Castle and others. Accompanying Rieu on this unforgettable show are the Ballet of the Vienna State Opera, The International Dance Theatre and The Berlin Folk-Music Sparrows. "ANDRE RIEU IN WONDERLAND" is available now on DVD and CD formats.

Andre Rieu has earned the distinction the #1 pledge drive artist for PBS. With the release last year of one of his most successful projects to date, "RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL LIVE IN NEW YORK," the Dutch maestro known fondly as "The Waltz King" took U.S. audiences by storm with frequent and high profile airings of the DVD on PBS' pledge drives in the Fall and throughout December. Already established as one of the top performing and selling classical artists worldwide and a platinum selling artist in the US, Rieu's popularity shows no signs of waning as "RADIO CITY" debuted at #1 on the Billboard Classical Crossover chart shortly after its release on September 11. Rieu's worldwide appeal is as strong as ever having recently earned a Gold sales award in Canada and continues to sell out arenas around the globe as well as in the U.S. Rieu's U.S.-based label Denon Classics was the #1 Independent Classical Label for 2007 and #3 Classical Label overall for 2007.
