Harry Potter with his magic wand is once again ready to cast a spell on audiences but with a little help from a symphony orchestra.

On March 31 and April 1, Radio City Music Hall will screen “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” the 2001 entry that launched the popular film franchise, accompanied by a live concert from the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, which will perform John Williams’ Oscar-nominated musical score. “Sorcerer’s Stone” is planned as the initial installment in the Harry Potter Film Concert Series, which will present all eight movies. The series, which is playing internationally, is being presented by CineConcerts and Warner Bros.

“Harry Potter is synonymous with excitement around the entire world and we hope that by performing this incredible music with the full movie, audiences will enjoy returning to this world, and to the many wonderful characters and adventures that inhabit it,” said Brady Beaubien, CineConcerts’ co-founder and producer, in his announcement of the series.

Tickets for the shows, which begin at 8 both nights, are $49.50-$125. Muggles who want to reserve seats can do so at 800-745-3000 or
