One of the most magical moments for those who grew up in the ’90s and ’00s is discovering the wizarding world of Harry Potter. We were introduced to the spellbinding story of the Boy Who Lived, who has to defeat the evil Lord Voldemort and deal with his newfound magic. Since the release of the line of novels in 1997, it has become the best-selling book series in history and garnered fans across the world. Its first novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, was adapted into a film in 2001 and the rest is history.
This September, Potterheads can relive the magic of the first movie as they can watch Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone accompanied by the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra performing live. The orchestra will be conducted by Gerard Salonga as they provide the soundtrack to the film, which will be screened on a 40-foot screen at The Theatre at Solaire.
The screening is part of the Harry Potter Film Concert Series, a global concert tour celebrating the Harry Potter films. Presented by CineConcerts and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, it will have over 900 performances across more than 48 countries worldwide through 2019. The Philippine run is organized by CC:Concepts, which also hosted a screening of Call Me By Your Name accompanied by the Manila Symphony Orchestra.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in Concert will be held on September 14 and 15. Tickets are now available on Ticketworld.
UPDATE: Following reports that 86% of tickets have been sold, a third show has been added! You can now buy tickets for the September 15 show at 7PM.
