POP classical artist, André Rieu will celebrate his 70th birthday with a one-off event in cinemas across the country - including Skipton's Plaza Cinema - in January.

The two screenings will feature a collection of his favourite performances from his live shows across the world, as well as him reminiscing with presenter Charlotte Hawkins about his life and multi-decade career.

Alongside his Johann Strauss Orchestra, the show features the maestro performing his most notable pieces from the most stunning locations around the world, including Schönbrunn Vienna, Radio City Music Hall New York and the Coronation Concert in Amsterdam.

As part of the celebration, together with Charlotte Hawkins, Andre will look back over his life, passions and music, while taking his cinema audience on an exclusive tour of his home in Maastricht.

Through an incredible life with unparalleled achievement, the world-renowned violinist Rieu is said to be the current biggest classical music artist in the world. With more than 40 million records sold worldwide and selling over 700,000 tickets each year – not to mention his July Maastricht cinema shows breaking box office records –r he has been dubbed ‘the maestro of the masses’ by the New York Times.

70 Years Young will be screening at the Plaza Cinema in Skipton on January 4 and on January 5. Tickets are available via: andreincinemas.com.
