If you've yet to catch a show by The Illusionists, then you're really missing out on an 'out of this world' magical experience.

Last year, the first Illusionists show took the world by storm, selling out before the season opened. This year they're back with a difference - new staging, new lighting, new Illusionists, and with a 3D experience in the mix, the audience is left dumbfounded and believing that magic can really happen.

If you're not familiar with The Illusionists, this is a where the best performers in the illusion and magic world are woven into one show.

This year's line up includes The Unusualist, The Deceptionist, The Futurist, The Master Magician, The Warrior, The Hypnotist and The Manipulator. This talent is just as entertaining and exciting as the previous, and the audience at the sold out opening night at Her Majesty's Theatre in Adelaide lapped up every minute of it.

Three of the Illusionists were favourites on talent shows. Australia's own Raymond Crowe (The Unusualist) on Australia's Got Talent, and James More (The Deceptionist) and Aaron Crow (The Warrior) on Britain's Got Talent.

The show moves at a fast pace with each Illusionist on stage showcasing what they do best. Accompanied by dancers, large LED screens, thunderous music, and special visual effects, it's simply magical.

Yu Ho-Jin (The Manipulator) astounds the audience with card manipulation, charismatic Adam Trent (The Futurist) combines comedy and technology illusion, Dr Scott Lewis (The Hypnotist) hypnotises selected audience members, Luis De Matos (The Master Magician) shows that magic and charm go hand in hand, Aaron Crow (The Warrior) is a master at handling weapons such as swords, cross bows and knives, Raymond Crowe (The Unusualist) has impeccable timing and is a hit with the kids, and handsome James More (The Deceptionist) stuns you with his disappearing acts and death defying stunts.

The bonus with this show is it appeals to the whole family. With The Illusionists involving the audience, it adds another dimension for a really entertaining night out.

just saw on the news that The Hypnotist was found dead last night in Sydney. He fell from a 11 storey balcony :(

Thank you very much for explaining. I have seen their photo on buses and thought it might be a movie.
