Sharjah Film Platform – The city’s first film festival will launch this week


Audiences will be treated to a one of a kind viewing experience, as both films will be screened in high definition, while the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra performs their complete scores. The Godfather will run for one-day, while Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets will screen for two days. Both shows are under the baton of American composer/conductor Justin Freer.

Experience the rise and fall of the Sicilian mafia, as the Armenian Orchestra belts out The Godfather’s traditional Italian folk and jazz music on stage. The mob-drama, which is widely regarded as one of the greatest films of all time will be screened on February 28. You will get the chance to watch the Academy Award-winning film, as the orchestra brings Nino Rota’s Oscar-nominated score to life, for just one night.

On the other hand, the second installment of the Harry Potter series will get four performances from March 1-2. The Grammy nominated score, which was composed by John Williams, takes you on a magical adventure as Harry comes face-to-face with a younger Voldemort.

This marks the return of The Harry Potter Film Concert Series to the Dubai Opera. Back in December 2017, the first Harry Potter film was screened on a 40-foot screen while listening to the Czech National Symphony Orchestra perform its soundtrack.

Tickets went on sale on January 17, and prices start from AED 175. There will also be a 20 per cent early bird offer available on the top two seating categories until January 31.
