The tale of the boy who lived was presented to the world through J.K. Rowling’s enchanting bestseller, and depicted brilliantly in the form of a movie: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. This film concert will take the audience to follow Rowling’s rich characters into the world of Hogwarts and celebrate the wizardly traditions and quirks within a timeless tale of resilience and bravery.
