Event description

The Queen of violin Vanessa Mae will perform for the first time in Cyprus on July 8th in a unique spectacle at Spyros Kyprianou Athletic Centre (Palais des Sport) in Limassol.

Vanessa Mae, the world famous violin prodigy continues to enthrall and delight audiences the world over.

The success of The Violin Player justified a bold creative gamble she wanted to take – a new synthesis of classical and pop sounds that would tap a broad and enthusiastic international audience as surely as it would raise the hackles of tradition-bound classical critics. The albums that followed confirmed this success – worldwide sales have topped 8 million units so far, earning more than 40 international platinum awards – making her a superstar for whom there seem to be no musical limits.

Vanessa-Mae has collaborated with such pop legends as Janet Jackson and Prince, performed on the soundtrack of the Disney animated feature Mulan, played Bach for the British Royal Family on the 250th anniversary of the composer’s death, fiddled as she modeled a wedding dress on the runway of a Jean-Paul Gualtier fashion show in Paris, and reached out to the children of the South African township of Soweto, the first international artist to be invited to its music school.

Her stunning presence only adds to her appeal. People magazine has voted Vanessa-Mae one of the “50 Most Beautiful People in the World,” and FHM named her one of “The World’s 100 Most Beautiful Women.”
