The Music of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child to be released

The sounds of Hogwarts will soon be ringing out in theatregoers’ homes far and wide. A new album, The Music Of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child, will be released on 2 November.

Presented as four contemporary musical suites – each one showcasing one of the play’s acts – the music is written, composed, performed and recorded by Grammy and Ivor Novello Award-winner Imogen Heap. For the show, Heap received an Olivier Award nomination in 2017 for Outstanding Achievement in Music.

The Music Of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child will chronologically feature the music heard in the spell-binding stage production, with tweaks designed to transport listeners into the magical world of the play. You can pre-order it here.

Of the announcement, Heap said, “This album is like nothing I’ve ever attempted before.

With over 100 moments of music in the play, the challenge was how to weave them together, and I think it has manifested into a really enjoyable listen, with memories for those who’ve seen the play, musical accompaniment to those with the script of the play or simply just to enjoy the music as a stand-alone album. It is crafted to be listened to in its entirety, taking the listener through different worlds within each suite.”

Based on an original new story by JK Rowling, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child received its world premiere in July 2016 at London’s Palace Theatre. The production won a record-breaking 9 Olivier Awards in 2017, and subsequently opened on Broadway. An Australian production will follow in 2019, along with productions in San Francisco and Hamburg.

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.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
