On ‘Shall We Dance’, Andre’s fans are invited to allow themselves to get carried away in the romance of the most amazing waltzes, such as The Blue Danube, tunes from the operettas The White Horse Inn and The Csardas Princess, the Sportpalastwalzer (‘Sports Palace Waltz’), Strauss & Co and – of course – the famous Second Waltz, more beautiful than ever with 300 dancers waltzing in gorgeous dresses over the Vrijthof square.
‘Shall We Dance’ also has well-known favourites, such as the Italian Volare and Funiculi, Funicula, the majestic Concierto de Aranjuez, Beethoven’s Ode to Joy and the emotional hymn of The Platin Tenors for the Notre-Dame in Paris with the beautiful aria Au fond du temple saint (The Pearl Fishers’ Duet) from the opera The Pearl Fishers by Georges Bizet. Admire the fantastic voices of world-famous sopranos with performances of On My Own from Les Misérables, Ebben Ne Andro Lontana from the opera La Wally or Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen. Lose yourself in the romance of The Lonely Shepherd, enjoy the instrumental ‘competition’ between the members of the orchestra in the virtuosic song Circus Renz, dance to Tutti-Frutti and Marina.
The DVD also marks André Rieu’s hundredth concert on the Vrijthof, with a very special and emotional awards ceremony by the Mayor of Maastricht for André Rieu, the most popular resident of the city.
