The Omaha Symphony will perform the entire score to “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” in concert this weekend.
The show is the third installment in the Harry Potter Film Concert Series in which the score is played while the film shows in high-definition on a 40-foot screen. It’s part of a global tour celebrating the film series, which started in June 2016 with “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” in concert. More than 2 million fans have enjoyed the series, which is scheduled to include more than 1,000 performances in 48 countries through 2019.
In the film, Harry and friends Ron and Hermione are in their third year at Hogwarts wizarding school. They meet an escaped prisoner, Sirius Black, and learn several new skills. The young wizard also must deal with the truth about Sirius and his relationship to Harry and his parents.
The score, by John Williams, was nominated for an Academy Award.
The concerts will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday in the Kiewit Concert Hall at the Holland Center, 1200 Douglas St. Tickets range from $19 to $96 and are available at omahasymphony.org or 402-345-0606.
