Copperfield to Baltic for Sellout Appearances: New Effects?

 

 

The Baltic Times reports today that David Copperfield will bring his “An Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion” to the Baltic Capitals this month.  The reporter advises readers “nothing will have prepared Baltic audiences for the glitz and spectacle of legendary American magician David Copperfield.” 

 

The article traces Mr. Copperfield’s well-known road to success; it cites the factoids about his youth, his induction as the youngest member of the Society of American Magicians, the starring role in The Magic Man, dating Claudia Schiffer, and his vast magic collection.

 

The reporter also mentions ? and this sparked our interest ? two new additions or modifications to the act:

 

In the so-called reunion part, a member of the audience who longs to be reunited with a loved one supposedly gets to realize their dream. While standing on a crane arm with Copperfield, suspended over the heads of the audience, the person then vanishes impossibly, only to reappear moments later in the freely selected location of their dreams.

 

And later in the article, the reporter notes, “in man vs. steel, Copperfield will float right through solid steel.”  This could be the reporters mistaken confabulation of two effects or a new illusion.  We would love to see either the vanish of a volunteer from the audience while perched on a construction crane above the crowd, or a levitation and penetration of solid steel while floating.

 

If you have information that could either confirm or shed light on the descriptions, please let us know. 

 

He never ceases to amaze and perhaps that is why he is the top moneymaker in the magic biz
