And while the lord of darkness tries to overthrow the concert, will the audience be able to stop him? This is an interactive musical show for lovers of the JK Rowlling saga and for families who, in a spirit of togetherness, are transported to the fantastic world of magic in the middle of Hogwarts, being taken to participate in the show itself alongside the main characters of the story to the sound of Camerata 9 ¾ in an acoustic version.
47th Volta ao Algarve
Volta ao Algarve postponed
The Portuguese Cycling Federation, organizer of Volta ao Algarve, today informed all partners and teams that the race will not be able to take place on the scheduled date, 17 to 21 February. Postponement is a difficult decision, but it has become inevitable, given the evolution of the pandemic situation in Portugal.
The organization of Volta ao Algarve is aware that legitimate expectations were created for an excellent sports event, however the general context of the country imposes a postponement that signals the commitment of the Portuguese Cycling Federation to the defense of public health and motivation to offer fans a high quality race at another time of the year.
Efforts were immediately made to carry out the 47th Volta ao Algarve next spring. The new scheduled date is the period from 5 to 9 May, although the recalendar depends on the consensus with the teams and with the partners involved in the event, and must also be accepted by the International Cycling Union, as it is a race of the UCI ProSeries Circuit.
