Melbourne Symphony Orchestra adds another show to ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ concert run

The newly-announced show marks the fourth and final instalment in the limited run.

Last year, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra announced a series of special live score concerts for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Now, they’ve extended the run to four shows.

A rollercoaster of emotion, the sixth instalment in the Harry Potter anthology is possibly the most pivotal, uncovering a different side of the villainous Professor Snape while Dumbledore meets his end and Voldemort’s wrath casts a dark shadow over both the wizarding and muggle worlds.

All the while, Harry, Ron and Hermoine find themselves grappling with all-consuming crushes and typical teenage dramas.

Considering the emotional impact of the film, it’s no surprise its score charted the highest of all the Harry Potter films. The intensity is set to peak as MSO bring it to the stage across four concerts.

They’ll perform the majestic score live as the film plays in HD, proving that you don’t need a wand to make a little magic – although a conductor’s baton is basically the same thing, right?

MSO bring Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in Concert to Hamer Hall from Thursday May 21 – Saturday May 23. For tickets and more information, visit the MSO website
