Guess who's coming back to the stage?
SHE spent a decade as Dutch classical music megastar Andre Rieu’s leading lady but having a baby meant soprano Mirusia Louwerse needed some time out.
So she and husband Youri Wystyrk moved back to her hometown, Brisbane, and the singer known simply as Mirusia embarked on a new career as a mum. Now baby Sascha is four months old and Mirusia is venturing forth for her first stage appearance in months.
She’ll be singing a few songs and talking about her life in an event entitled Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner? at the Tamborine Gardens wedding and function centre on Tamborine Mountain on April 18.
For fans of the world famous soprano dubbed “the angel of Australia” it will be a treat.
“I've been touring the world for so many years and now I’m back and I know so many people want to meet me and ask questions about my career,” Mirusia says. “This will be their chance and it will be a way for me to ease back into performing. I will work with Andre again but this year my concert schedule is already busy and I will be touring Australia again too from this month.”
Mirusia, 33, will be hitting the road soon on her From The Heart Tour singing songs from the album of the same name with a little help from British tenor and Britain’s Got Talent winner Paul Potts who will be touring with her.
Mirusia graduated from the Queensland Conservatorium in 2006, was discovered by Andre Rieu shortly afterwards and moved to The Netherlands and to international stardom. It helped that she is of Dutch descent and can speak the language fluently. And it helped that the ARIA award winner sings like an angel. She appears on most of Rieu’s best selling DVDs and CDs and has performed with him all over the world.
Now she’s back home and fans can get close up and personal at dinner on Tamborine Mountain where she’ll be grilled by Gold Coast PR whiz Caroline Russo. For a fee of $89, which fans will see as pretty good value.
