André Rieu enchants all tastes as he leads his Johann Strauss Orchestra through an evening of virtuosic swooning and dancing in the aisles. A violinist since the age of 5, after a biochemistry degree and two divorces, André radiates his lifelong love of classical music into the audience, tipping the scales of fancy and footloose. Like an omnipotent marionette artist, he maestros both the orchestra and spectators into enticing bouts of ballroom dancing, taking breaks between his Pied Pipering to excitedly play his Stradivarius violin. As Rieu interacts with the audience, the air fills with the kaleidoscopic balloons, lilting tenors and sopranos, and special surprises, which may include a John Philip Sousa séance or a tuba-hole marshmallow toss.
