André Rieu, the world’s most popular classical artist who is renowned for his energetic and festive live concerts, is returning to Scotiabank Place in Ottawa for “An Evening with Andre Rieu” on Nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will go on sale beginning on Friday, April 29 at 10 a.m.
“An Evening with André Rieu” will give fans what they’ve come to expect from Rieu’s North American performances: the maestro conducting his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra and playing his world-famous Stradivarius violin to create a celebratory atmosphere, where fans are encouraged to get out of their seats and waltz in the aisles. Top worldwide press outlets have taken notice, with Britain’s Telegraph describing the concerts as follows: “Rows of ordinary people who go to his shows with no intention of dancing invariably find themselves swaying and mesmerized, pied piper-style, into waltzing.”
“My main goal, every concert, is for people to have an unforgettable night,” says Andre Rieu. “I like to talk to my audience, interact with them and look them in the eyes. People can expect a colourful concert, with beautiful melodies, waltzes, surprises, balloons, the tenors and our lovely sopranos from South Africa and Australia.”
Known as “The King of Waltz,” André Rieu is one of the best-selling live acts in the world. He was ranked as the #1 male performer of 2009, and earned one of the top-grossing tours of 2010. Rieu has sold more than 30 million albums globally, and has broken all classical concert records, packing stadiums and arenas with more than 700,000 adoring fans each year. His latest album, Forever Vienna, reached #2 on the British pop chart, the highest-ever position for a classical record. He has been certified 100-times platinum in Australia, and has his own television series in the Netherlands. André Rieu performed for the British Queen in 2009 and for the Dutch Queen in 2010 -- an honour for any artist.
