Everybody needs a bit of magic in their life.

And the latest superstar act to announce a trip to Abu Dhabi will leave you thrilled, baffled and astounded in equal measures.

The Illusionists, Broadway’s highest selling magic show of all time, are returning to UAE in April bigger and bolder than ever before.

Made up of seven of the world’s leading illusionists, the show promises to dazzle the audience with stunning acts of grand illusion, levitation, mind-reading, and disappearance.

You can expect mind-blowing tricks, jazzy outfits and amazing aesthetics from the showmen, who have individually starred in some of the world’s biggest television talent shows including Britain’s Got Talent and Australia’s Got Talent.

And what’s more is they all have their own area of expertise to thrill audiences with a range of spectacular magic.

The group includes ‘The Trickster ‘, also known as Paul Dabek, ‘The Grand Illusionist’, Darcy Oake , ‘The Escapist’, Krendl and ‘The Weapon Master’, Ben Blaque.

‘The Unusualist’, Raymond Crowe, ‘The Manipulator’, Florian Sainvet and ‘The Magician’, Jamie Raven, complete the all-star line-up.

Oake even performed for the Queen of England at her 90th birthday, while Raven managed to win over a sceptical Simon Cowell.

“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 promoters Alchemy Project.

The Illusionists will be performing from 26-28 April in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi and from 1-7 May in Madinat Theatre, Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai.

Tickets can be only be purchased from and start from AED245.
