Harry Potter play to cast its spell over Germany

Magical Olivier Award record-breaking play Harry Potter And The Cursed Child will celebrate its German premiere in Hamburg in Spring 2020.

The stage instalment of the globe-conquering Boy Wizard series will arrive in mainland Europe in 2020, adding to its productions in London (where it premiered in July 2016) and Broadway. There are also further productions set to open in Melbourne, Australia and San Francisco, USA in 2019.

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child premiered at London’s Palace Theatre in July 2016, winning an unprecedented nine Olivier Awards. In April 2018 it celebrated its Broadway premiere at the newly renovated Lyric Theatre, triumphing with six Tony Awards. Both ceremonies declared it Best New Play and awarded it the prize for Best Director.

The play will see its debut German language production, the first non-English version of the play, performed exclusively and only at the Mehr! Theater am Großmarkt in Hamburg. In preparation for this extraordinary theatre event, the venue will undergo an extensive redesign starting in May 2019.

Producers Sonia Friedman and Colin Callender said: “We know Harry Potter has millions of German speaking fans and so we’re very proud that we are able to bring our beautiful production to Germany.”

The show is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series, and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The production is one play shown in two parts intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening performance), or on two consecutive evenings.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.
