Harry Potter fan and Singapore resident, Nicolette Mok, was representing MuggleNet during the press invitation on Friday, June 1st, for the Grand Opening of Harry Potter: The Exibition in Singapore.
The Exhibition continues its International Tour after leaving Sydney, Australia, and has officially opened at the ArtScience Museum, Marina Bay Sands where it will remain until September 30th.
To open the event, Harry Potter stars James and Oliver Phelps were in attendance and did a quick Q & A session for the press before allowing the press to tour the Exhibit. One of the newest additions to the tour in Singapore is a display of all the Horcruxes (with the exception of Harry Potter himself).
From Nicolette's report:
The Phelps twins, too, had nothing but praises for the items on display, speaking of the attention paid to detail in each costume, prop, and set. In particular, they spoke about the Weasleys’ Wizarding Wheezes’ products, which were realistic packages rather than just empty boxes. These tiny ‘blink-and-you-miss-it’ details are, indeed, the very things that comprise Harry Potter: The Exhibition. Not only is this a journey down memory lane for us fans, it is also an acknowledgment of the ten years worth of tremendous effort poured into the valiant attempt to do justice to JK Rowling’s magical prose.
