Thursday, 09 March

In the list of the 20 most successful films worldwide, “Harry Potter” productions occupy six(!) places. The soundtracks by John Williams, Patrick Doyle, Nicolas Hooper, and Alexander Desplat became correspondingly popular. John Williams, who composed the music for the first three films, also wrote the famous "Hedwig's Theme," which is now considered the main melody of the Harry Potter films. Since 2016, the successful books and films have been joined by the Harry Potter play "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child", which has been showered with countless awards in New York and London and has become by far the most successful play in the world. For the play, Imogen Heap composed beautiful new music that will be included in this concert in the final set.
"The Music of Harry Potter—Live in Concert" is a magical evening. Using state-of-the-art technology, the powerful ensemble of the Cinema Festival Symphonics under the direction of the renowned conductor Stephen Ellery will take Harry Potter fans on a musical journey through all eight Harry Potter films. Soloists, choir, and orchestra celebrate a unique sound force that allows you to fully immerse yourself in the world of magic and provides many goose-bump moments. Elaborate screen animations and visual effects also allow the emotions to reach gripping heights.
Tickets are CHF 62.10-117.50.
