A group of internationally renowned magicians will convene at the Circo Price Theatre in Madrid later this month to vie in the XII International Magic Festival contest.
From February 10 to March 13, Jorge Blass will once again bring the world’s best magicians to Madrid for the 12th edition of the International Magic Festival, a five-week celebration of the magic trade. This year’s edition boasts a wide array of talents, with contests, shows, and events being held throughout at the Teatro Circo Price, a space associated with CircoRED (the Federation of Professional Circus Associations in Spain).
The main event of the festival will be the International Magic Gala, which features well-known names in the magic world, from Belgium’s Laurent Piron to Korea’s Yu Hojin, from Russia’s Víctor Moiseev to Sweden’s Hakan Berg, from Britain’s David Climent to Spain’s Inmagic and Jorge Blass himself. Sharing a stage for the first time, these magicians will present their latest and most innovative illusions in a spectacular show.
Throughout the five weeks of the festival, six performances of “Close-Up Magic” will be held at Parish Hall. In this intimate venue, 100 lucky people will witness feats of card magic, micro magic, and other specialties from Pedro Capel, Gisell, and Adrián Carratalá, international masters of illusionism.
