MIRUSIA Louwerse thought she was going to be an opera singer, but life had a more enticing prospect in sight for the Queensland soprano with the voice of an angel.

Lead soprano since 2007 for the sensationally-popular Dutch violinist and conductor André Rieu, she tours the world with Rieu in an enviable international career that has also seen her billed as the only classical artist with an Aria number-one chart award.

“The way we can fly everywhere so quickly it doesn’t matter where you are, you can have a career from anywhere,” Mirusia tells “CityNews” by phone from Brisbane, where she now lives with her Dutch-born husband Youri Wystyrk.

Some news from me - to you!

Hi everyone and happy July!


After a successful and fun tour through the Netherlands, it’s been a really incredible few months touring around Australia on my “This Time Tomorrow” Tour. I look forward to my last concerts of this tour in August through Colac, Albury, Canberra, Sale, Warragul and finishing in Melbourne. I have met so many amazing people during my tour and seen some really fantastic cities that have left an impression on me. Together with my orchestra we have already performed in 20 cities around Australia so we are looking forward to the last 7 concerts. Make sure to grab your tickets as some concerts are almost sold out - all information is to be found on my website:

Last month we had the pleasure of chatting with international classical music star, Mirusia Louwerse. Mirusia is the darling of the classical circuit, an accomplished soprano, an Aussie-Dutch hybrid, and most importantly, a Stuff Dutch People Like fan! Currently on tour in the Netherlands, we were curious to learn more about what it meant to grow up Dutch ‘down under’ and how her Orange roots influenced her career. Below are edited excerpts from our interview.

Mirusia announces she will be releasing a new CD and DVD entitiled "This Time Tomorrow" in April.
