Here's your first look at Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in Melbourne

Advertising

It's been in previews since January 18 and now the official Australian premiere of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is just a few days away. We'll be delivering our verdict on the show just after opening night wraps up this Saturday February 23, but here's a glimpse at the magic happening inside the Princess Theatre to hold you over until then.

The production is a replica of what's showing on Broadway and London's West End, but performed by a cast of stellar Australian actors. Melbourne is only the third city in the world to get the show and producers are pretty adamant it's not going to tour Australia any time soon, given the size of the production.

And it's going to be in Melbourne for quite a while yet, with the announcement that a new block of tickets – up until February 2 2020 – will go on sale at 11am on February 26. If you're looking to score the best seats in the house, we recommend booking well in advance.
