There's more to magic than meets the eye 

Jump into this enchanting tale of a young boy who longs to be an illusionist. A tale of daring and willpower, the importance of a good assistant, and of course, a white rabbit! Packed with cleverly executed illusions and tantalising tricks, it proves there’s more to magic than meets the eye!

This rich, multilayered production from the Netherlands’ acclaimed Het Filiaal theatremakers is sure to captivate the whole family with live music, impressive illusions, magical puppetry and marvellous tricks.

A compelling performance for students. 

Presented by Sydney Opera House and Het Filiaal Theatremakers
