The Illusionists Live
Au Eventim Apollo
Direct from a completely sold out season at the Sydney Opera house in Australia, William Morris Endeavour presents the most important live magic show currently touring the world, The Illusionists. Audiences will witness jaw dropping acts of grand illusion, levitation, mind reading , disappearance and for the first time ever in history, a full view water torture escape. Performed by the acclaimed escapologist Andrew Basso, he will hold his breath for over 4 minutes whilst attempting to escape from his underwater cell. This group of world class performers take their cue from the showmanship of the great illusionists of the past - such as Harry Houdini and pair it with a new and updated contemporary aesthetic, whose set and costume design lend the genre a theatricality and artistry that has rarely been seen before.
