André Rieu's Heartstrings Touched by South African Fans

...
RIEU'S Heartstrings Deeply Touched by South African Audiences
JOHANNESBURG: "I have never had such an emotional experience as with the South African audience", said André Rieu after his first performance in the Super bowl at Sun City.

His tour for next year has already been made public. He will perform again on 18 and 19 March, but his largest concert will be on the "Parade" in Cape Town.

A DVD recording will also be made, titled "André Rieu live in South Africa". It will follow the pattern of the typical André Rieu DVD's of his performances around the world, which will be devoured by South Africans.

Ticket sales for the performances at Sun City have already started and ticket sales for the parade performances will begin May 3rd through Computicket.

Yesterday's performance in Sun City had a few places left in the area to the right of the stage. Durban will also have a performance for which tickets will be available today.

The South African "Diamond", the 31-year-old Cape Town opera soprano, who is also performing with Rieu, brought tears to his eyes when he first heard her sing.

Sunday afternoon in the Super bowl, tears were visibly running down his cheeks, and he truly had difficulties controlling his emotions when Kimmy Skota, a member of the Xhosa tribe, sang the song "My African Dream".

According to Rieu, the entire orchestra was very emotionally when they first heard her sing. "Her voice is so pure". He has already asked her to perform with him in his hometown of Maastricht in the Netherlands.

Africa, South Africa ... Rieu has taken the audiences by storm.

"The audience was the best we have ever had. We very much look forward to many more concerts in South Africa".

This was an article from the South African "Volksblad", written in Afrikaans. Because of the Dutch - South African history, the language "Afrikaans" is like 17th century farmer's Dutch, so we can understand each other. The writer of the article is Marga Ley. You can see her in the first episode of the South African road soap. She is from Dutch parents who emigrated to South Africa when she was 2 years old.
