Das Adventsfest der 100.000 Lichter.The Advent party of 100.000 lights. 2018.
On December 1st, ARD, the first German TV Channel, usually broadcasts a big show:The Advent Party of 100.000 lights. The program lasted almost four hours and André Rieu and his orchestra was one of the many guests.The show was presented by Florian Silbereisen and in case of André’s performance, he was assisted by Michelle Hunziker. The show was broadcast live from the Convention Center in Suhl, in the German State of Thüringen (Thuringia). Watch the video below.
We thought this musical party did not need a full translation. Florian welcomes André and introduces his “new assistent“ Michelle. André tells about his tour to Argentina and Australia and now to Suhl in the German State of Thuringia. Florian reminds André of the promise he made last year: to allow him and Michelle to perform with the orchestra. André is okay as long as they don’t like to play the first violin. In the back of the orchestra are several instruments for them and they have to play them on his instructions. To start he invites Florian to take the cymbals and Michelle the big drum. They have to play louder…So they all perform the Peterburgers Sleigh Ride.Afterwards Florian is totally exhausted.
