In the tradition of David Copperfield, the show, which premieres October 2 and runs through March, will combine psychological games, audience participation, music, video projection, dramatic lighting, and, of course, magic, to fulfill the dreams of several lucky audience members on the spot.
Promoters say that the Czech illusionist (a 2012 Czech Magic Talent of the Year winner) takes inspiration from the modern magic that is currently “hot in Britain and America.”
Those who recall Copperfield’s televised Statue of Liberty stunt will appreciate Nesved’s ambition to disappear a Prague monument.
“We have devised a spell, we would like to make the statue of Jan Žižka at Vitkov disappear. But these actions are for the long haul. Because even if we want it to disappear momentarily, we need many permits.”
