The Modern Maestro presents 26 classics like the heartening Silent Night, Ave Maria and O Come All Ye Faithful, as well as unforgettable renditions of all-time favorites like Jingle Bells and Go Tell It On The Mountain. A highlight in the program is the premier of Andre Rieu's own composition December Lights, sure to become an instant holiday classic. Witness a dream come true for a little ballerina who dances for Andre and his guests in front of the magnificent castle backdrop; Read more experience the intimate feeling of being at home with Andre for Christmas; and take an unforgettable sleigh ride through a Christmas wonderland.
