After more than a year with no international performances, violinist André Rieu has announced concert dates for November 4 and 5, 2021, at Tel Aviv’s Menora Mivtachim Arena.

The concerts are a rescheduling of shows originally planned for November 2020 that were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

All tickets purchased for the November 2020 concert dates will be honored for the November 2021 performances. Tickets, ranging in price from NIS 295 to NIS 895, can also be purchased through the Leaan ticket agency.

The Dutch violinist last performed in Israel in 2018, playing three shows at Mivtachim Arena.

Rieu is best known for creating the waltz-playing Johann Strauss Orchestra, which has turned classical and waltz music into a global touring act.

Rieu plays a 1667 Stradivarius violin, and performs with between 50 and 60 musicians in his Johann Strauss Orchestra.
