This is more than your standard rabbit-out-of-a-hat magic show.

A troupe of eight world-class magicians – better known as The Illusionists – are all set to descend on Dubai from November 6th to 9th to tantalise, confuse and amaze audiences at World Trade Centre.

Themed around the early 20th century, The Illusionists 1903 brings together performers of all disciplines, including a mind reader, daredevil acrobat, slight of hand magician and many more.

As an indication of the kind of jaw-dropping wonderment you can expect, two of the magicians actually performed an illusion in which a full-size jumbo jet vanished in front of a packed crowd at the Reno Hilton, Nevada back in 2011.

It’s been widely regarded as the largest on-stage disappearing act ever attempted.

Seriously, check it out.

The troupe’s performance at World Trade Centre this November will mark their third appearance the UAE, after performing The Illusionists 2.0 to a sell-out crowd last year.
