It is not easy to master the art of magic stage illusion routines because of the simple fact that many magic tricks are actually geared toward impressing small audiences and so the tricks themselves are small and are not easily visible from a distance. Therefore, the needs in so far as performing a trick for the stage are far different than is the case for routines meant to impress small gatherings of people.
Nothing Is Impossible
However, nothing is impossible and so it is possible to tailor the small magic illusion tricks so that they work just as well for a magic stage illusion audience. However, a true magic stage illusion trick is a distinct type of trick that is not the same as other kinds of magic illusion tricks. So, when a magician needs to perform magic stage illusion tricks he will need to consider using props as well as hire assistants and perhaps even make use of large sized animals.
In fact, magic stage illusion tricks lend them very well for television programs and this is one reason why many people (especially lay persons) consider the televised magic stage illusion routines to be the only real form of magic. In reality however most magicians are not magic stage illusionists and the vast majority of magicians will actually specialize in magic that is suited for entertaining smaller groups of beholders.
One reason why fewer magicians concentrate on the magic stage illusion routine is the high cost of performing these routines and also because of the size of the audience and consequently the requirements of the stage oriented trick. Some of the more well-known magic stage illusion routines that almost everyone is familiar with are sawing of women in half while another popular such routine is the Lady-to-Tiger.
Among the more famous practitioners of the magic stage illusion routine names such as Siegfried & Roy as well as David Copperfield, Lance Burton and Criss Angel are sure to have become household names. And, among popular magic stage illusion tricks some such as Assistant’s Revenge and Aztec Lady as too Battle of the Barrels are well loved and appreciated by everyone.
Besides mastering the science of an illusion magic trick magicians also need to have the proper items of illusion magic equipment. Items such as ABC Block are widely used and typically help to ensure that when the magician commands, a block comes off and falls into the hands of an amazed spectator.
