[Sponsored] Experience a tale of magic and wonder with your kids these school holidays
What did you want to be when you were a kid? An astronaut? Pirate? Doctor? Or maybe you dreamed of being one of the world’s best illusionist like the young protagonist in The Great Illusionist.
These winter school holidays the Sydney Opera House is hosting The Great Illusionist, a daring tale about a young boy who wants to be an illusionist. Bring your kids in for a show where they’ll learn the importance of having a strong will, a good assistant and a white rabbit!
The Great Illusionist comes to Sydney from the masterful hands of the Netherland’s acclaimed Het Filiaal Theatremakers, who have created a fun, engaging children’s show packed full of mind-boggling illusions and expertly executed tricks. Even the most hardened cynic will think “how did they do that” as the cast perform illusions that will bewitch audience members young and old.
There’s more to magic in The Great Illusionist too. The multilayered children’s production combines the art of illusion with live music and magical puppetry to create a truly marvellous performance. And at an efficient 55-minutes long, The Great Illusionist is the perfect length to engage young minds without them getting fidgety.
Add a kid’s lunch box or two to your ticket booking to keep little bellies from grumbling (they contain a wrap, piece of fruit, doughnut and a juice or water).
The Great Illusionist is on at the Sydney Opera House from July 21 to July 29. Tickets start at $29.
