Wands at the ready: This is going to be magical…

Last month, Harry Potter fans in Abu Dhabi were treated to a special screening of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, complete with a live symphony orchestra.

For all those muggles who missed out on the spellbinding event, well, we’ve got great news for you: It’s just been announced that Harry Potter in Concert will be coming to Dubai Opera in December. Merlin’s beard!

You’ll be able to see your favourite bespectacled hero on a 40-foot screen, with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra performing the iconic John Williams score.

There will be four shows in total, from December 7 to 9 – one on Thursday at 8pm, two shows on Friday at 3pm and 8pm, and one show on Saturday at 3pm.

Tickets start from Dhs175 and will go on sale on October 11 via the Dubai Opera website, Platinum List, and at Virgin Megastores.

More than 6,000 people attended the Abu Dhabi event, which encouraged the production company to bring the show to Dubai.

“We heard our fans, and we are thrilled to announce that we are taking the hit show to Dubai Opera this December,” said ProActiv managing partner Nicolas Renna.

“Having Harry Potter at the state-of-the-art Dubai Opera house will be an unforgettable experience for all Harry Potter, John Williams and classical music fans.”

We. Are. So. There.
