Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has won five-star reviews from critics, with one describing it as “a game-changing production”.

The play, written by Jack Thorne, is set 19 years after the seventh and final book in the series by JK Rowling.

It opens officially at the Palace Theatre, in London’s West End, on Saturday.

Audiences have been urged to “keep the secrets” since the play began previews in early June.

Presented in two parts, the play – showing the stars of the wizarding saga as adults in their mid-30s as their own children head off to school – stretches over five hours.

The stage production of Cursed Child picks up where we last left Harry and his scar in Deathly Hallows, replaying the final scene where Harry and Ginny send their son Albus Severus off to Hogwarts for the first time. The play proceeds in the format of a part family soap opera, part choose-your-own-adventure. It is initially fragmented as we catch up on the 19 years that have passed, and the whirring scene changes – often accompanied by unnecessary choreography – are at times hard to navigate, even for Potter devotees.

This video is a tribute to the genius of JK Rowling. As well as pictures related to the play, it also includes some of the rave reviews the play has received across the media world.
