The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood is about to be cast in a whole new light when its brand new nighttime show, “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle,” which features light projections on the castle itself, opens on June 23.
Once night descends on Hogsmeade Village, Hogwarts Castle will be taken over by an amazing display that showcases all four houses of the school: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff. The show comes to a climax and ends with light beams piercing the evening sky.
This projection and light display is state-of-the-art, and is designed to dance and float across the castle. The show is accompanied with a special arrangement composed by Academy Award-winner John Williams, who composed scores for the film series.
The score for the nighttime show will be played in a surround sound environment, enveloping each guest and immersing them in the experience. The score was recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra in London, with arranger William Ross as the conductor.
“Nighttime Lights” will be performed in Hogsmeade Village multiple times throughout the night during its summertime run. Live rehearsal performances for annual passholders and limited guest previews will start in June to prepare for the June 23 opening date.
