MuggleNet Reports on the Opening of “Harry Potter: The Exhibition” in Singapore
The Exhibition continues its international tour after leaving Sydney, Australia, and has officially opened at the ArtScience Museum, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, where it will remain until September 30.
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 everyone to tour the exhibition. One of the newest additions to the tour in Singapore is a display of all the Horcruxes (with the exception of Harry Potter himself).
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’ Wizard 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, but it is also an acknowledgment of the ten years’ worth of tremendous effort poured into the valiant attempt to do justice to J.K. Rowling’s magical prose.
Thanks to all of the fans who responded to our request for coverage, and special thanks to our selected representative, Nicolette, for doing a terrific job of covering the opening.
