Harry Potter’s Wizarding World at Universal Orlando presents visitors with detailed and interactive experiences. Great trips, perfectly restored novel locations, magic wand experiences, and of course, Butterbeer, make it one of the finest places to visit in all of Orlando. But did you know that the lands of Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade are offering shows from the world of Harry Potter? There are five events not to be missed in the realm of wizards.
- Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees Show
- The Tales of Beedle the Bard
- The Tales of Beedle the Bard
- Hogwarts Frog Choir
- The Triwizard Spirit Rally
1. Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees Show
Warbeck and the Banshees is a live music show, performed at Carkitt Market several times a day and should not be missed. The Singing Zorner and her 3 Banshees perform a lively show that also uses audience attendance with song titles created by the author of Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling (‘You Stole My Cauldron but You Can’t Have My Heart,’ ‘A Cauldron Full of Hot Strong Love,’ and ‘You Charmed The Heart Right Out of Me’).
Although the songs contain a variety of references to Potter’s books and films that fans love, guests who don’t know (or care) about Harry Potter will enjoy intricate choreography and fantasy singing (along with Weiner & Alan Zachary, the team behind Disney C) along with music and lyrics.
Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees In Harry Potter Books
The beautiful voice of Celestina was evident from a very young age. Unfortunately, Mrs. Warbeck did not agree to enroll her daughter in Hogwarts, but instead threatened school with letters asking for choir, drama club and dance lessons to show her daughter’s talents.
Celestina concerts often take place with a band of banshees. On the last night of her Aphrodite flight, three devoted fans were engaged in a nasty three-room pile up across Liverpool, and their tickets often appear at vastly inflated prices on black markets (one reason why Molly Weasley has never seen their favorite singer live yet).
Celestina also made her name and talents known as the ‘Beat Those Bludgers Back,’ ‘Kids, and Chuck, the Quaffle Here’ reported for good reasons, including the raising of funds for St Mungo”s Hospital for Magical Diseases and Juries. Celestina became more controversial as the Ministry of Magic decided to place restrictions on how the wizarding community could celebrate Hallowe’en.
Some of Celestina’s best-known songs include You Charmed the Right Out of Me and A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love. Her fans are usually older people who love her grand style and powerful voice. The early 21st century album You Stole My Cauldron But You Can’t Have My Heart was a massive global hit.
Celestina’s personal life provided a lot of food for the gossip columns of the Daily Prophet. The early marriage to a back dancer lasted only a year; Celestina then married her manager, with whom she had a son, only to leave him ten years later for the composer Irving Warble.
2. The Tales of Beedle the Bard
Beedle’s tales the Bard describes the one of two wizard’s fables — Deathly Hallow’s “The Three Brothers,” or “The Fountain of Good Fortune” — in which the marionettes created by Michael Curry (The Lion King, Broadway, The Musical) are used. At the beginning of each performance, the story to be told is selected ‘randomly.’ The marionettes are splendidly, and the actors’ performance while maneuvering them is clever although it is difficult to understand some dialogue, especially during the Fountain tale. The show lasts between 10 and 12 minutes.
a) The Tales of Beedle the Bard: The Tale of Three Brothers
There is nothing like walking down Diagon Alley, where two stories from The Tales of Beedle the Bard are played by students from the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts. Maybe you’re familiar with Deathly Hallows The Story of Three Sisters, but you never saw it that way. As the story came alive with Emmy creator Michael Curry’s sets. Watch it come alive.
b) The Tales of Beedle the Bard: The Fountain of Fair Fortune
The second Beedle the Bard fable that you can see in Diagon Alley is The Fountain of Fair fortune, the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts. Like the Story of Three Sisters, this series features some very good marionettes and even better performances by our local theater troupe Diagon Alley.
3. Hogwarts Frog Choir
The Frog Choir is one of two shows in the Harry Potter-Hogsmeade Wizard World in Adventure Islands (the other is the Triwizard Spirit Rally). You’re supposed to plan on standing for the duration of the show, because there’s no seating.
The series of stars is a chorus made up of four students from Hugwarts (one from Gryffindor, one from Ravenclaw, one from Slytherin and one from Hufflepuff). There’s a big crooked frog on the pillow (like the Harry Potter movie and the Azkaban Prisoner).

The Frog Choir did not appear in the Harry Potter Books, but a student chorus appeared in three of the films. The student choir can be seen in Harry Potter and Azkaban, the big, frozen croaking choir, and in Harry Potter and Harry and Potter and the Half Blood Prince without the frogs. Professor Flitwick is responsible for the choir. The Frog Choir show opened in 2010 with the Harry Potter Wizard World – Hogsmeade in Adventure Islands.
4. The Triwizard Spirit Rally
The Triwizards Spirit Rally is one of the shows that you can take at Hogsmeade on the Adventure Islands of Universal in Orlando. Representatives of rival schools from the Beauxbatons Academy of Magic and the Durmstrang Institute have acted in two completely different ways to convince and threaten. Initially in Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire, we were introduced to both the Wizard Schools.
First of all, the Beauxbatons ladies, who turn and smile and sigh. Apparently, his strategy is to conquer his opponents with charm. You could almost see little cartoon cordials and greed floating around.
And then the Durmstrang boys are hard. They make many loud guttural noises and hit the stage with their sticks. You try to frighten anyone with enough nervousness to even think about competing with them.
It’s not a must-see series, but if you’re waiting for a family Member to get away, or if you’re just looking to get in a Hogsmeade setting, then it’s a nice way to kill time. Check out, dude! Check out!
