The Illusionists: Witness The Impossible launched in January 2012 with a sell-out season at Sydney Opera House reaching an audience of 31,000 in nine days, followed by a Mexico City eight-day season with an audience of 42,000. The hand-picked cast of internationally renowned illusionists together create a blockbuster stage show featuring a stunning mix of their most outrageous and unbelievable optical illusions including nail-biting Russian roulette, jaw-dropping acts of levitation, mind-reading, disappearance and escapes.
This show sees the magicians take their cue from the showmanship of the great illusionists of the past – such as Houdini – and combine it with contemporary sets, costume design, technology and live band Z, best known as touring band for Hip Hop legend NaS, to create a spell-binding family-friendly blockbuster.
It’s deliciously, self-knowingly over the top and brain bendingly spectacular – genuinely satisfying family entertainment that is not to be missed
Incredible, astounding, amusing, mystifying, perplexing, and challenging – all in all this is a magical, mystery tour de force. Be prepared to be amazed!
