The iconic melodies of Harry Potter’s whimsical theme and The Godfather’s bone-chilling tune are not something to forget, and now’s your chance to listen to both film soundtracks live.

Dubai Opera has announced two critically acclaimed films in concert for its 2019 Cinema Series, featuring The Godfather and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secret in concert.

Films fans and lovers of each of the movie’s famous soundtracks will get to experience the films played in high definition on a 40-foot large screen, all while the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra performs their complete scores.

For one night only on Thursday February 28, The Godfather will be put up on the big screen, with the symphony playing Nino Rota’s iconic score.

The Godfather still remains one greatest films in the history of cinema, and that’s thanks to composer Nino Rota's score filled with traditional Italian folk music and jazz. That’s exactly what you’ll hear, live.

As for all the Potter fans out there, make sure to mark your calendar for Friday March 1 and Saturday March 2, as the songs of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets will come alive in not one, but four shows.

Justin Freer will conduct the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra in performing John Williams’ unforgettable score from the second entry in the film franchise.

Williams' score in the soundtrack earned a Grammy nomination for very good reason, and you can get the full effect of it during its show at 3pm and 8pm on Friday, or 2pm and 7pm on Saturday.

Tickets for both performances start from Dhs175, going on sale Thursday January 17 at noon. Better yet, you can get a nifty early bird discount of 20 percent on the top two seating categories until Thursday January 31.

Head over to to nab your tickets, pronto.

“If you haven’t seen a Hollywood blockbuster accompanied by a full live symphony orchestra then you’ve truly never experienced the incredible power of music to bring films to life”, said Dubai Opera’s Chief Executive, Jasper Hope.

If you’re a fan of Shakespeare, you’ll be happy to know Dubai Opera has also announced Othello will now be performed over four consecutive days.
