Set in the Art Deco surrounds of The Castlereagh Boutique Hotel in Sydney's CBD, Dr Taliesin's Classic Conjuring owes its inspiration to the great close-up magicians from the Golden Age of Magic and is a stone's throw away from where world famous magician Max Malini premiered in Australia almost a century ago. In addition to convenient onsite pre-show dining options and nearby restaurants, the Castlereagh is a short walk from attractions including Sydney's beautiful 19th century Queen Victoria Building and Hyde Park.

Is the show suitable for children?
Yes. Classic Conjuring is tasteful and sophisticated classic sleight-of-hand magic, and is suitable for the whole family. We would suggest children 10yrs+ may enjoy the show more. Ticket-holders under 18yrs will only be admitted when accompanied by an adult ticket-holder.

How long does the show run?
Approximately 1 hour 10 minutes with no intermission.

If I come again will it be the same show?
The freestyle and interactive format of Classic Conjuring means no two performances are identical. Each show is tailored to the audience.
