Broadway’s highest selling show of its kind, The Illusionists is set to return to Dubai with a brand new show in May. 

Running for seven days from May 1 to 7 at the Madinat Theatre, the show brings together seven of the most incredible illusionists on earth, each showcasing their jaw-dropping acts. 

Audiences will witness stunning acts of grand illusion, levitation, mindreading, and disappearance from magicians Paul Dabek and Jamie Raven, illusionist Darcy Oake, escapist Krendl, stuntman Ben Blaque, ventriloquist Raymond Crowe and manipulation artist Florian Sainvet.

“What makes this show different from any of the previous Illusionist shows in UAE, is the presence of master magicians such as Jamie Raven & Darcy Oak who have mesmerized audiences around the world with their stunts in Britain’s Got Talent “ said Sia S Far, managing director of Alchemy Project, who are behind the event.

The group of world class performers describe that they ‘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’. That sets the bar high, if you ask us.

As well as a week-long run in Dubai, The Illusionists will also be bringing their record-breaking show to Abu Dhabi, performing for three days at Yas Island . The show has already played across more than 200 cities in 25 countries, reaching tens of millions of people.
