Be amazed and astonished in an over-the-top spectacle of music, magic, mayhem, and mirth
Robbins Pops: Mysterioso
Enter a world of mind-blowing illusions with the world’s best magical artists. Your Edmonton Symphony Orchestra brings a madcap musical production to the Francis Winspear Centre for Music that will leave you spellbound. This Halloween, Pops Maestro Jack Everly will bewitch you with a concert of hypnotic music, and special guests bring unbelievable magic acts and laugh-out-loud comedy to centre stage.
It will be a sight to behold when master magician and illusionist Joseph Gabriel presents some of the most spectacular illusions he has ever created. Voted “Best Stage Magician” at the 2009 World Magic Awards, Mr. Gabriel has a commanding stage presence and distinct power of performance that has brought him to the forefront in shaping the future of magic.
The comically unstable duo Les Arnold and Dazzle bring a funhouse ride of laughs and gasps; perplexing quick-change artists David & Dania will flabbergast audiences with staggering costume transformations; and the unforgettable vocal mimicry of Broadway and off-Broadway performer Christina Bianco will have concert guests in stitches.
Ticket prices range from $24 - $81 (agency fees apply). Call the Winspear Centre Box Office at (780) 428-1414, toll-free 1-800-563-5081, or purchase online
. Guests are also invited to bring and display their own creatively carved pumpkins in the Winspear Centre lobby for the duration of these Halloween weekend concerts.
