Scenes from his iconic open-air concerts in Maastricht are part of the agenda though Magical Maastricht isn’t just a Cyprus premiere as cinemas all over the world will also be showing the concerts.
“The enchanting waltzes of André Rieu and the incomparable Johann Strauss Orchestra have become a much-loved tradition at this time of every year,” say the organisers. “Music brings people together, brings hope and brings joy – and we need this now more than ever!”
