The Harry Potter Film Concert Series returns to Riverside Theatre, Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre with Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in Concert, the third film in the Harry Potter series.
On 4 & 5 May, 2018, The West Australian Symphony Orchestra will perform the magical score live from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban while the entire film plays in high – definition on a 40 – foot screen.
The Harry Potter Film Concert Series, which is another magical experience from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, kicked off in June 2016 with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in Concert and is scheduled to include hundreds of performances across more than 35 countries around the world through 2018.
In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry, Ron and Hermione, now teenagers, return for their third year at Hogwarts, where they are forced to face escaped prisoner, Sirius Black, who seems to pose a great threat to Harry.
Harry and his friends spend their third year learning how to handle a half – horse, half – eagle creature known as a Hippogriff, repel shape – shifting Boggarts and master the art of Divination.
They also visit the wizarding village of Hogsmeade and the Shrieking Shack, which is considered the most haunted dwelling in Britain.
In addition to these new experiences, Harry faces a werewolf and must overcome the threats of the soul – sucking Dementors.
With his best friends, Harry tackles advanced magic, crosses the barriers of time and changes the course of more than one life.
Earning an Oscar – nomination for the score, the spellbinding and incredible music composed by John Williams became an instant classic, conjuring beautiful, soaring motifs continuing the adventures of Harry Potter on his magical journey.
This film concert series has been created by CineConcerts, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, and will be conducted by its creator and Producer, Justin Freer.
He explains, “The Harry Potter film series continues to be a once – in – a – lifetime cultural phenomenon that delights millions of fans around the world. It is with great pleasure that we introduced 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 will be another 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 this world, and to the many wonderful characters that inhabit it.”
