illusionists 2.0 – Sydney Opera House [Review]

Last night we had the opportunity to watch the dress rehearsal for the second installment of the illusionists theatre show at the Sydney Opera House. With a good understanding of how magic works, I guess I have a different take of a magic performance compared to a lay person. So there was good and bad things to be said about the performance, but in this Blog I’ll focus on the good :)


Chatting with 4 of our staff who attended the dress rehearsals, we all agreed that both “the unusualist” Raymond Crowe and “the Warrior” Aaron Crow were the stand out performers of the production.

illusionists 2.0Aaron Crow AKA the Warrior performed an intense, death defying performance which didn’t need words or an introduction but coupled with high energy orchestral music and Aaron’s stage presence and demeanor, the audience knew straight away something big was about to happen.

illusionists 2.0Our other favorite stage performer, Raymond Crowe AKA the Unusualist provided an opposing performance as far as style is concerned – but equally as engaging and mesmerizing to watch. Known largely from his hand puppet routine which went  viral on youtube some time ago, it wasn’t this which stood out with Raymonds performance.

The stand out part of Raymonds performance was not just his mime or illusion skills but his overall stage presence and ability to hold the crowds (1000 people+) attention for the duration of his act.

What did you think of illusionists 2.0 ?

Not being a lay person nor a Magician, I guess I would have a different reaction to the performance so I would love to hear your feedback on the show, Both from Magicians and audience members who are experiencing magic for the first time.
