Time Out says

With musical backing from the MSO, watch as Harry and the gang take on Voldemort's army in the Battle of Hogwarts

What could possibly improve on the grandeur of the Harry Potter film series? Seeing it on a huge screen with the magnificent Melbourne Symphony Orchestra performing the score live. 

The Harry Potter Film Concert Series is a global concert tour celebrating the boy wizard films all over the world, and it kicked off in Melbourne in 2017. Over the last few years, Melburnians have gotten to hear the awe-inspiring scores from films one through six, and now it's finally time for the series to draw to a close with the last two films of the Harry Potter series. 

In parts one and two of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Nicholas Buc will conduct the MSO in performing Alexandre Desplat's epic and emotional score as the films are projected onto a 12-metre high HD screen. Let the live music transport you into the magical wizarding world and follow along as Harry and the gang track down and destroy the final horcruxes and prepare for the Battle of Hogwarts against Voldemort and his army. 

If previous iterations of this popular series are anything to go by, tickets will sell out – so get ready to put your galleons down. Tickets are on sale now, with part one running from September 22 to 24 and part two running in 2023 from March 30 to April 1.
