VISION @ Esplanade Theatre 2015

03 March, 2015

The critically acclaimed and world‐class illusion act by Singapore's only professional illusionist duo, Lawrence and Priscilla, returns to Singapore with a grander production and more mystifying magic than ever before!

03 March 2015, Singapore – This summer, Gateway Entertainment will be bringing VISION back to the Esplanade Theatre from 3rd to 12th July, after its sell‐out, successful China run last year, in time to celebrate the nation's Golden Jubilee.

Singapore's only professional illusionist duo Lawrence Khong and Priscilla Khong will once again bring to the audience a world­‐class performance that promises to be even bigger and grander on all fronts than ever before.

As the largest illusion-­‐theatre show in Asia, the creation of VISION took two years in the making before its sell‐out debut performance in 2011, earning high praises among audiences in Singapore. Four years since its inception, VISION has performed throughout the region, and will be presenting an enhanced version that is its finest yet.

VISION 2015 promises to fascinate its audience through complex and visually stunning acts, presented in a grander scale while introducing numerous new illusions and an expanded storyline.

Home­‐grown award­‐winning professional illusionist, Lawrence Khong says, "Being the highest form of artistic expression of our craft, this new rendition of VISION pays tribute to our nation and the significance of its historic milestone".

Priscilla, the first in Asia to be named Female Magician of the Year by the International Magicians Society continues, "This is the perfect opportunity to celebrate with the rest of Singapore as one nation, and also to showcase to the world what Singapore's talents are capable of".

Besides the illusionist duo, this spectacular production is also the genesis of the brightest creative talents in the industry, both internationally and locally: from the Emmy Award winning Don Wayne, principal magic creator for David Copperfield and Paul Kieve, Drama Desk Award recipient for Ghost The Musical, to Kenn C, Singapore's own Music Director for the World Concert Tours for Stephanie Sun 2014.
