Watch Out For This Event
Illusionist Stefan Leyshon debuts at Mandarin Oriental
Be amazed by Stefan Leyshon’s magic and gastronomy at Mandarin Oriental. The French illusionist is set to present his Diner Secret show, creating illusions on a 360-degree stage in-front of diners seated only a few feet away, while they enjoy a gourmet dinner devised by a Michelin-star culinary team.
Leyshon was the youngest magician to be admitted to the French “Magic Circle”, where he took inspiration from Jean-Eugène Robert-Houdin and Georges Méliès who were two of the most iconic French illusionists from the late 1800s and early 1900s. Today, Leyshon recreates the unexplained mysteries in his modern interpretation. Guests will be mesmerized by his contemporary take on levitation, mind reading, and other classic magic acts as well as interacting with a “humanoid robot”.
When: June 8, 2018
Where: The Connaught Room, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong
