Magical Blossom announcements just keep coming.

Not only is the Cleveland Orchestra playing the score along with a viewing of the second Harry Potter film, the organization has announced it's doing the same for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring come summer 2020 at the Blossom amphitheater.

The award–winning score, composed by Howard Shore, expertly shapes the high and lows of the first film in Peter Jackson's three-part opus based on the classic J.R.R. Tolkien novels.

Although the film about hobbits, wizards, orcs, a magical ring and a big evil eye is nearly 20 years old, its special effects still mostly hold up. Catch a reminder of the film's epicness below: 
As usual, kids under 18 are free on the lawn, while adults/muggles are $26. Pavilion seats cost $15 for kids and students and $36 for adults. Tickets, which go on sale Dec. 10, can be purchased here and also by calling 216-231-1111 or 1-800-686-1141.

The orchestra's full summer concert lineup is set to be announced early next year.
