If you’re like Molly Weasley, you’re a fan of Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees and enjoy the music of the Singing Sorceress. What’s that? You’ve never heard any of her performances? That’s understandable for Muggles, but now you can catch a live Celestina Warbeck concert in Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida.
Click the video accompanying this article to learn more about how Celestina found a permanent concert venue in Orlando. You’ll also learn about Tales From Beedle the Bard, the other new show in Diagon Alley, from Mike Aiello. The songs performed by Celestina and the Banshees are “A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love,” “You Stole My Cauldron But You Can’t Have My Heart,” and “You Charmed the Heart Right Out Of Me.” All of those titles come from JK Rowling herself.
The two shows will be performed every day, so get a park map with a show times guide if you’d like to see them. They’re not held in a theater, so plan to arrive early enough to stake out a good standing room spot. Both are must-dos for Harry Potter fans who want to see a new side of the Wizarding World.
Just as you never got to see Celestina sing in the Harry Potter movies, you also never saw a performance of the Fountain of Fair Fortune, a tale by Beedle the Bard. Go to this article to learn more about that performance, as well as the Tale of the Two Brothers. Both shows are put on daily by the Wizarding Academy of the Arts.
This newest addition to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter officially opens on July 8. The original Hogsmeade section is next door at Islands of Adventure, so you’ll want to buy a two park ticket if you plan to hop aboard the Hogwarts Express at Kings Cross Station and go between the two areas.
