Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban™ in Concert
This spellbinding concert will feature the full-length film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban™, projected in high-definition on a giant screen, with Oscar-winning composer John Williams’ score performed live by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra.
In J.K. Rowling’s third installment in the Harry Potter series, Harry, Ron and Hermione (now teenagers) enter their third year at HogwartsTM, where they meet escaped prisoner Sirius BlackTM, learn to handle a half-horse/half-eagle Hippogriff, repel shape-shifting Boggarts, and master the art of Divination. In addition to these new experiences, Harry faces a werewolf and must overcome the threats of the soul-sucking DementorsTM. With his best friends at his side, Harry masters advanced magic, crosses the barriers of time – and changes the course of more than one life.
Since its debut on the page and then on the big screen, the magical Harry Potter series has reached hundreds of millions of people around the world, making it one of the most beloved franchises in entertainment history. Five-time Oscar winner John Williams’ bewitching music for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban earned an Academy Award nomination, and is considered a classic for its ability to conjure the beautiful, soaring motifs of Potter’s extraordinary adventures.
