My African Dream is not just another Andre Rieu concert, but a very interesting, and entertaining view, (in my opinion), of what also goes on in the background.
This is a two disc DVD, the first mainly following Andre around, some interviews, but mainly all the preparation that he is involved with.
The second continues in this vein to start with, then proceeds to the concerts. There are also snippets from other concerts attended during this period.

Perhaps not one of his best for the, 'I only want to see and hear his music' followers, but for anyone wanting to know more about the man, his orchestra, and what it takes to arrange a concert, (I was almost worn out just watching all the work involved), this is well worth adding to a collection.

The African concert itself is again perfection.

Having seem Kimi sing at the 02, I particularly wanted an Andre Rieu dvd with Kimi on.
To get this I found My African Dream,a double dvd. The documentry side of the South African visit was both interesting and informative. Then there is the show dvd. It was interesting to hear the comments of the audience after the performance.
As for Kimi, her singing was absolutly wonderful and reduced me to tears,I just wish there had been more of her on the dvd.
This is certainly one to add to your Andre Rieu collection and Kimi is certainly the best diamond to come out of South Africa.

Totally different type of presentation by Andre et al. His emotion almost gets the better of him at times but this in no wise alters its value. I hope this is not the first of the type and if it is I will certainly be a purchaser.

Quite a lot of background information is included including his tax status, the cost of transferring his equipment and the efforts his entourage went to to make thge excellent concert eventually.

I would recommend this to everyone.

MY AFRICAN DREAM by ANDRE RIEU

I actually saw the Andre Rieu show on TV earlier this year when staying a some friends house and really enjoyed the show. When I saw you could purchase the DVD on
Amazon I decided to invest and pleased I did. The DVD goes in to much more detail of how Andre Rieu found the Black Diamond and also you see the show which was put on in South Africa and the south african peoples reaction to the concerts. I really enjoy watching the videos I purchased and watching other shows on TV. In fact I enjoy his shows much better that our British Proms they are so stayed. I hope you find my comments interesting.

This DVD is different as on disc one it follows Andre Rieu on his journey to his African Dream. From problems due to the volcanic ash from an Iceland Volcano making it difficult to get everything to the Venue, and sudden calls to the UK and Holland to set up specials for the British and Dutch Royal Families, and shows how all the problems are solved. Then, on Disc two, it is a mixture of interviews as well as some of the highlights of the Concert itself. The tears never stop flowing as we watch the invited young people of South Africa fulfil their dreams of being on a stage, and singing some real tear jerker's in a mixture of Joy and Sadness. Some fans of Andre Rieu may not enjoy this DVD, as the Music is in a way, in the background, but I give it 5 stars for giving us an insight in what it takes to set up a Concert, which always looks so easy, but takes so much dedication and effort to set up. The Musical parts are very exciting, as well as moving, because we have seen, [for the first time], what is involved in the background. I think its a brilliant effort by all.

Hello, This was a terrific concert as always, and the documentary was really interesting as well, The african lady has a most wonderful voice, and never seen so many tears shed at a concert, great to watch.

Thankyou Barbara
