The Harry Potter Film Concert Series returns to Melbourne with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows™ - Part 1 in Concert and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows™ - Part 2 in Concert, the last two films of the Harry Potter series.

Nicholas Buc will conduct the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in performing Alexandre Desplat’s incredible scores live while each entire film plays in high-definition on a 40-foot screen.

In 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 2016, more than 3 million fans have enjoyed this magical experience from The Wizarding World, which is scheduled to include over 1,434 performances across more than 48 countries worldwide through 2022.

In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows™ Part 1 in Concert, Harry, Ron and Hermione set out to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s power – the Horcruxes. On their own and on the run, the three must rely on one another more than ever…but Dark Forces threaten to tear them apart.

Winner of the International Film Music Critics Award (IFMCA), World Soundtrack Award, and Satellite Award for Best Orig. Score, Academy-Award winning composer Alexandre Desplat (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The King’s Speech, Philomena) created a subtle yet full-flavored score, transporting audiences into the adventures of Harry and his friends as the long-feared wizarding war begins!

In the epic finale of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows™ Part 2 in Concert, the battle between the good and evil forces of The Wizarding Worldä escalates into an all-out war. The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. But it is Harry Potter who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort.

It all ends here.

Nominated for a Grammy® Award and winner of the BMI Film & TV Award and World Soundtrack Award for Best Score, Oscar® winning composer Alexandre Desplat creates an epic and emotional finale that pays tribute to not only John Williams’ familiar themes but Nicholas Hooper’s mournful work in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

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.”
