A Little History
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 one who could take the head off a bird and reattach it with no ill effects. It is certain that the ancient Romans performed the timeless trick of Cups and Balls. After that magic fell into disrepute in the West, and it is not until the late 1800s that our modern idea of the magic show starts to be enjoyed and accepted. It is just this era that inspired Roland Sarlot and Susan Eyde in 2009 to reverse their artistic direction with their 1,000+ stage illusion show and introduced an intimate setting "parlour show." Their inspiration was based on the golden era of magic, and they began developing the show in 2004 when Roland was House Entertainer at Miraval, one of the world's top resorts. They called this new endeavor Carnival of Illusion, a hip Vaudeville-inspired theater show which played to 62 sold-out audiences its first season.
What Other's Are Saying!
Compared to the price of dinner and a movie best value out there. We also got to meet Roland and Susan after the show- delightful people who really love what they do. Thanks Carnival, we've told our friends in Phoenix it's worth the drive!
We had a lovely time last night. We do not care to watch anything that is not uplifting and wholesome. We weren't sure what to expect with your show but we were not disappointed. It was delightful entertainment and we would not hesitate to recommend your show to others.
