CHELTENHAM – ILLUSIONATI: A MAGICAL CONSPIRACY

February 21 @ 7:30 am - February 24 @ 8:30 pm

£15

The Great Baldini is a magical legend, a relict of the music halls and a theatrical performer of the old school. Known as ‘The Emperor of Illusion’, ‘The Prince of Prestidigitation’, and ‘The Maharajah of Mystery’, he is a hugely entertaining stage magician.

1930s Britain: The Great Baldini is a fixture of the British Music Hall Magic Circuit. Whilst charmingly pompous and theatrical, he has never quite achieved the success he feels he deserves, and he suspects this is because an unseen power is working against him. Baldini discovers the diary of the Great Lafayette. A clue scribbled on the last page identifies a secret cabal of Magicians (THE ILLUSIONATI) as this power.

Baldini is determined to find and confront the ILLUSIONATI and finally take his rightful place as the preeminent magician of his age. Imagine Tommy Cooper trying to crack the da Vinci Code – a dangerous, thrilling, and hilarious adventure spanning Europe and the ages.
