Guests Will Enjoy New Entertainment and Shows in Diagon Alley, Featuring Puppetry from Emmy Award-Winning Designer Michael Curry, and Other Interactive Experiences
ORLANDO, Fla. (June 4, 2014) - Imagine wandering up the cobbled street of Diagon Alley, turning into nearby CarkittMarket, and enjoying a live performance by one of the wizarding world's most popular singing sensations or seeing stories from The Tales of Beedle the Bard come to life right before your eyes.
Today, Universal Orlando Resort revealed the exciting details behind the unique entertainment and interactive experiences that will debut as part of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley, the all-new, magnificently themed land opening this summer at Universal Studios Florida.
While exploring the streets of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley, guests will be able to enjoy the following shows:
The performers will retell two of the famed tales of Beedle the Bard, a 15th-century author of wizarding fairytales. The show will feature "The Fountain of Fair Fortune", in which three witches and a knight meet in their attempt to reach the Fountain in an enchanted garden, and "The Tale of the Three Brothers" - featured in the seventh film "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1" - in which three wizard brothers come face to face with Death.
There will also be various interactive opportunities for guests to enjoy while visiting London and Diagon Alley:
"Bringing The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley to life has allowed our team to create show content and experiences that will take guests further into the fiction than ever before," says Michael Aiello, Creative Development Director for Universal Orlando's Entertainment team. "Nowhere else in the world will guests be able to enjoy these unique experiences - from watching a stage show based on the popular wizarding stories from "The Tales of Beedle the Bard" to enjoying the music of Celestina Warbeck, a character from the fiction."
