"You're a wizard, Harry". It is the orphan's eleventh birthday, as Hagrid the Giant, pronounces the words that will turn Harry Potter's life upside down.
But the meek-looking youth with the round spectacles and lightning-shaped scar on his forehead is no ordinary magician: he alone is said to have the power to break the power of Voldemort: The Wizard of Darkness. J.K. Rowling's hugely successful novels captivated an entire generation, and the eight-part Hollywood blockbuster films also made millions of hearts beat faster. For the first time at the Munich Olympic Hall, fans can experience the Harry Potter saga in person with a new stage show performed by a live orchestra.

The story with all its drama is brought to life by the Babelsberg German Film Orchestra, as they perform John Williams' legendary film score. For the first time, the striking "Hedwig's Theme" is to be played in front of live audiences, with its mysterious dark motif that characterised the sequels – guaranteeing powerful emotions!
