... 2016, CineConcerts and Warner Bros. Consumer Products announced the Harry Potter™ Film Concert Series, a global concert tour celebrating the Harry Potter™ films. Since the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone™ in Concert in June 2016, more than 1.3 million fans have enjoyed this magical experience from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, which is scheduled to include over 900 performances across more than 48 countries worldwide through 2019.
In Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone™, Harry Potter learns on his 11th birthday that he is the orphaned son of two wizards and possesses magical powers of his own. At Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he learns the high-flying sport of Quidditch and plays a thrilling ‘live’ chess game en route to facing a Dark Wizard bent on destroying him. In the second installment of the series, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets™, cars fly, trees fight back and a mysterious house-elf pays Harry a visit to warn him of what lies ahead this year in the world of wizardry. It’s a year of adventure and danger when bloody writing on the wall announces: “The Chamber of Secrets has been opened.” Then, in Harry, Ron and Hermione’s third year at Hogwarts, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban™, they meet escaped prisoner Sirius Black and learn to handle a half-horse/half-eagle Hippogriff, repel shape-shifting Boggarts and master the art of Divination. Harry withstands soul-sucking Dementors, and even faces a werewolf. And in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire™, Harry Potter is mysteriously entered into the Triwizard Tournament, a grueling contest among three wizarding schools in which he confronts a dragon, water demons and an enchanted maze only to find himself in Lord Voldemort’s grasp.
Justin Freer, President of CineConcerts and Producer/Conductor of the Harry Potter Film Concert Series explains, "The Harry Potter film series is a once-in-a-lifetime cultural phenomenon that continues to delight millions of fans around the world. It is with great pleasure that we bring fans for the first time ever an opportunity to experience the award-winning music scores played live by a symphony orchestra, all while the beloved film is simultaneously projected onto the big screen. This is truly an unforgettable event.”
Brady Beaubien of CineConcerts and Concert Producer for the Harry Potter Film Concert Series added, “Harry Potter is synonymous with excitement around the world and we hope that by performing this incredible music with the full movie, audiences will enjoy returning to the Wizarding World.”
Mr. Grant Bowie, Chief Executive Officer & Executive Director of MGM China Holdings Limited said today, “We are very excited for the Harry Potter Film Concert Series, an entertainment experience that brings together live music and film – a first for Macau. It redefines orchestral performances and provides an all new way for Harry Potter fans in Macau to experience the films.”
