Product Description

NTSC/Region 0. On a beautiful Melbourne evening in November 2008, an audience of nearly 40,000 witnessed the show of a lifetime. André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra, together with the Imperial Ballet of Vienna, Tanzschule Elmayer, Stars on Ice and the Australian Federal Police Pipe and Drum Band and friends brought Vienna to Australia. Against the spectacular backdrop of the Schönbrunn Palace, André, his musicians and his entourage entertained the audience with gems from the Austrian capital as well as a host of popular melodies from his 'second home', Australia.

5.0 out of 5 stars A triumphant show by a unique performing unit. May 4, 2009
Of all the Andre Rieu performances that I have witnessed, going back many years on VHS through the world-wide productions on DVD, this show he gave in Australia is superlative to extremes. I have no doubt that some will say this is not the classical Rieu, and therefore not so great, but on this occasion, he successfully presented a show that could satisfy all tastes, from those of the "general" public to those of the "exclusive" musical genre. And that is what real entertainment is all about. I don't think maestro Rieu will beat it, but I'm quite happy to live with all his successes culminating in his great triumph in Melbourne.

5.0 out of 5 stars Culmination of Dreams July 6, 2009
Verified Purchase
"Live in Australia" is a feast for the eyes and ears as Andre Rieu's first DVD featuring the stunning Schonbrunn Castle set. There are new Australian numbers on this DVD, as well as less-played songs from recent shows and new arrangements of songs like "Bolero." Andre fearlessly includes the realities of live performance, not editing out a microphone failure on "You Belong to Me". Thousands of Australians filled the Telstradome for this concert, and you can see Andre's emotion as he plays "Waltzing Matilda" at the end of the encores.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed February 2, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
All we can get on our screen is "Playback prohibited- area limitation" Do we have to be in Australia to use it? I'm returning it in hopes that we can get one we can use because we love the group and have most of their DVD's

5.0 out of 5 stars Andre you've done it again ! December 16, 2008
Format:DVD
Andre Rieu and his amazing show finally made it to Australia in November 08
and the joy on 40 thousand faces was testament to Rieu's style of entertainment.It was a warm Melbourne night and the mammoth stage was spectacular,almost like being in Vienna ,a life size reproduction of the of the Schonbrunn Palace, Overall the content was similar to that of the experience in Vienna , but with a unique Australian flavour , the standout here was Mirusia singing "Botany Bay",to Australians this is almost like a hymn and there were few dry eyes,as the song echo's the leaving of the Old Motherland in May 1787 and reaching Botany Bay on January 19-20-1788. There were eleven vessels which carried about 730 convicts and 250 free settlers all starting life anew in the Unknown land of Australia.
I felt that Andre hit the mark with this,and other Australian content too, and i was also fairly happy with the sound quality given that preforming in huge stadiums of this kind can be very hard from an audio standpoint.
At the time of writing this Dec 16th 08 this DVD is already breaking Australian sales records in the lead up to Christmas.Total running time is 2hours 9mins
so you get a good deal!

5.0 out of 5 stars VIENNA COMES TO MELBOURNE January 15, 2009
Format:DVD
One of Andre Rieu's best previous concert/shows was the one he did in front of The Schonbrun Castle in Vienna about 3 years ago. It is just amazing that Andre's Production Manager, Pierre Rieu, had the brillant imagination of actually building a real size replica of Schonbrunn Castle right inside the Telstra Dome stadium ,Melbourne for the venue of this concert/show in Nov 2008. It is most impressive to see the orchestra podium right on the doorsteps of the castle;the first floor ballroom of the castle right on top of the orchestra bay; two ice skating floors (one on each side of the podium); one water fountain on each side just beyond the ice skating floors. To complete the set up the somptuous chandeliers and wall appliques are as the original in Shonbrunn castle, Vienna.Four huge widescreens replace the castle windows. The rest of The Telstra Dome stadium is packed with 40 000 spectators.

After the entry of the Johann Strauss orchestra, led by Andre,and accompanied by the sound of THE SEVENTY SIX TROMBONES, the musicians and the choir build up the evening's lively and joyful atmosphere straightaway with BLAZE AWAY. By the end of this musical number a large part of the audience has already joined in the swaying mood.Andre's great talent of witty jokes and interactions with the audience start right away with the offering of the chair of the flutist Teun Ramakers from the podium to a latecomer in the audience!
FACHERPOLONAISE is interpreted with the Viennese Debutante taking to the floor of the top ballroom.

1.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE: Will not play on standard US DVD players. February 10, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The DVD offered by IMPORT-DVDs is not NTSC/All Regions.It is a PAL/Region 0 DVD and will not play on a standard US DVD player.You need to have a multi-region DVD player to play this DVD. You will notice that on one Amazon.com page, IMPORT-DVDs is selling it for $38, on the other Amazon.com page IMPORT-DVDs is selling it for $32.91.It's the same PAL/Region 0 DVD on both pages, despite the fact that on one of the pages, the DVD is described as NTSC/All Regions.
