If magic entices you, tricks thrill you, and elaborate performances excite you, then look no further than The Illusionists 1903. It’s the highest selling and longest running magic show on ‘Broadway’, and it’s coming to Qatar for the very first time, this month!
Featuring six brand new magicians, and eight world-class illusionists handpicked from across the globe, The Illusionists 1903 promises to transport the audience back to the golden age of magic, a time when conjurers were the true rock stars of the day. Showcasing the origins of some of the greatest and most dangerous illusions ever built, the show also unveils never-beforeseen experiments drawn from a treasure trove of long-forgotten mysteries.
The true art of magic will be explored in exquisite, turn of the century grandeur in this larger than life production from the acclaimed creative team behind international mega hits The Illusionists and The Illusionists 2.0. Audiences will discover first-hand the spectacles that transformed stage entertainment over 100 years ago. Creative Producer, Simon Painter, says: ”The show is a world first, with each of the eight international illusionists being the best in their niche and together creating an impressive 19th century stage spectacular that will leave audiences spellbound.”
Said Mac.s.Far, CEO & Managing Partner at Alchemy Project Entertainment Agency, says: “We are always fascinated and excited by the new editions of this amazing Magic Show series, which keeps getting better and more exciting year after year. “After the great success of the Illusionist 1 and Illusionist 2.0 in 2013 and 2014, we are happy to bring the show back, this time after record breaking sales on Broadway and the West End, directly to the Middle East with a mesmerising Brand New Show.”
Taking to the stage will be The Alchemist aka Alberto Giorgi; The Snowman aka Mark Kalin; The Escapist aka Krendl; The Clairvoyants aka Thommy Ten and Amelie van Tass; The Charlatan aka Dana Daniels; The Conjuress aka Jinger Leigh; and The Eccentric aka Charlie Frye. We’re excited – see you there magic fans!
