Matt Kalita’s Well-Orchestrated Escape

Matt Kalita

The Northwest
Indiana News
reports this morning Matt Kalita is at it again.

Mr. Kalita will attempt to escape from a straightjacket whilst hung upside
down over an orchestra.

On more than 100 occasions, magician Matt Kalita has donned a
straitjacket, hung upside down from hot air balloons, skyscrapers, cranes and
bridges and freed himself.

But he has never performed this feat during a symphony orchestra concert.
Until tomorrow.

While the LaPorte County Symphony Orchestra, led by music
director Philip Bauman, is playing circus-themed music at its “Under the Big
Top” family concert, Kalita will also do a levitation — make his wife float in
space above the Elston Theatre stage — and make birds, rabbits and other
animals appear from nowhere.

The paper notes “[m]embers of the orchestra will be in the lobby for a kind
of ‘instrumental petting zoo.’ Kids will be able to handle and play orchestral
instruments.

Michiana Clowns will create balloon art and do pocket magic and
face painting. Local artist David Russell will draw caricatures.” We wish Mr.
Kalita well and hope he has a successful escape effort.If you’re in the
Northwest Indiana area, check out the show tomorrow (Saturday) night.
