Potterheads young and old can now relive the excitement of the series when The Philosopher’s Stone – the adventures of young wizard Harry Potter (played by a baby-faced Daniel Radcliffe) as he reclaims his magical heritage - arrives in Dubai for a screening at Dubai Opera.

Following the success of the performance at Yas Arena and due to public demand, the film will be shown in high-definition on a towering 40-foot screen, with the score by John Williams recreated in painstaking detail by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra.

ProActiv Managing Partner, Nicolas Renna, said the success of the Abu Dhabi shows highlighted the popularity of Harry Potter in the region.

"We heard our fans, and we are thrilled to announce that we are taking the hit-show to Dubai Opera this December. 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!”

The concert will take place from December 7-9, 2017. Tickets start from Dh175 and will go on sale on Wednesday, October 11 via www.dubaiopera.com, www.platinumlist.ae and all Virgin Megastores.
