After bringing Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley back to the big (40-foot) screen for the first five films, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra is giving the sixth film in the wizarding franchise the same movie-and-music showcase in 2020.

Across two sessions on Friday, May 22 and Saturday, May 23, Hamer Hall will come to life with the sights and sounds of the Burrow, Potions classes, Quidditch matches and the funeral of one beloved character, because JK Rowling's boy-who-lived and his pals are never far away from a theatre — or a concert hall. And tickets for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince live in concert are on sale soon.

This time around, viewers can expect something a little different. While the event will run as usual, it's the score itself that'll stand out. After doing the honours on the first three HP flicks, veteran composer John Williams stood aside, with two-time Oscar nominee Patrick Doyle (Hamlet, Sense and Sensibility) in charge of the fourth, and Nicholas Hooper whipping up wondrous wizarding soundtracks for the final three. Hooper's score for the Half-Blood Prince is the highest-charting of all six films' soundtracks.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Monday, August 19.
