A Little History
Do you remember seeing your first magic show? Or maybe you have yet to experience this age-old artform. It is hard to pinpoint when the first conjurers and magicians began to make a trade out of illusion and disbelief. Some references are made on Egyptian papyrus about unbelievable feats, but it is certain that the ancient Romans performed the timeless trick of Cups and Balls. After that magic fell into disrepute and was considered witchcraft and who wanted to be burned at the stake? By the 1500s books started to appear on the subject, revealing conjuring secrets, but it is not until the 18th century that our modern idea of the magic show starts to be enjoyed. Since then magic has been getting bigger, better and more exciting with fans of this artform coming from around the globe.
What Other's Are Saying!
Planned our vacation eight months ago around our tickets to Carnival of Illusion, the show was indeed worth it. Marvelous venue, great illusions, rollicking fun all around. I am looking forward to seeing them again.
Thank you for making my son's birthday magical! He talked about it the whole way back to Sierra Vista. Here's the picture we all took. We'll be coming again next season and we already spread the word to our friends and family to join us!
