David Copperfield show in Las Vegas
Frequently acclaimed by his audience, but still accused of mediocrity by some, David Copperfield, the legend of illusionism and magic performances, is again this year the star of the Las Vegas shows for the next season, 2015-2016. He performs on the stage of MGM GrandHotel and Casinoin the evenings, at 7 and 9.30 PM, with an additional show on Saturdays, scheduled for 4 pm. He is, after all, the man who gave a new meaning to the name Copperfield, which now is almost always associated to magic before making you think about Dickens’ novel.
General description of the show
David Copperfield considers magic to be as vast as imagination and his shows are the undoubted proof that the illusionist takes this analogy seriously. His shows are stunning, according to critics and to the strong majority of his public. What seems to be one of the most important things in his magic show is David Copperfield’s unbelievable appearance, always fresh, looking young and natural, in the over fabricated world of the sparkling Las Vegas. He has a natural born talent for entertainment and always succeeds in connecting with his public, which naturally becomes anintegrating part of the show. Except this, he looks very down to earth and wears casual clothes, which lately has become a rarity during illusionism and magic shows. Some might consider his jokes a little dirty, but the atmosphere during the entire performance is not at all disturbing and people just relax and enjoy what is considered to be one of the best shows in Las Vegas.
What can you see during David Copperfield’s magic show?
Everything. This talented magician is capable of mixing together the most simple card tricks with the famous machineries build especially for his eccentric numbers of illusionism. One moment he makes a coin disappear, then he starts building a great number which ends with a car appearing out of nowhere. And the audience enjoys them all, without exception because David Copperfield knows how to maintain the public connected not only when he manages to walk through a wall, but also when he makes apparently simple tricks using a coin or something similar. The David Copperfield show in Las Vegas includes also a series of numbers which require the participation of the audience, so there is a possibility for the spectators to be helped “disappear” for a while, only to show up in another part of the theatre.
Aren’t the tricks boring?
During a magic show designed and performed by David Copperfield anything could happen. Sometimes there are things appearingall over the place, while others are disappearing out of a sudden. People floating in the air is not something out of the common either in a Las Vegas show hosted by David Copperfield.There is this fantastic world right in front of everybody’s eyesand more one forces to remember that all those things are not real, the illusion becomes stronger and this makes the entire show amazing. There is no time for boredom during Copperfield’s performance. Every second is just another experience which makes the impossible look easy.
What should a spectator expect?
Most of the people who ever heard about David Copperfield have previously seen him on television. The live performance is a lot better, according to almost everyone. In fact, people still feel comfortable just like if they were sitting in their couches at home, thanks to the entertainer’s unique talent of making each of the men and women in the audience special. Many people who saw him performing live have declared they felt as the show man was talking directly to them. And they are right, there is a special connection between the entertainer and his audience. One can just call it magic. Actually, sometimes the audience barely succeeds in applauding, because everyone is simply stunned by the things they have just seen. Some numbers are breath-taking, but generally David Copperfield manages to mix the parts of the show in order to maintain a balanced flow of energy among the audience.
How much technology is used during the show?
Most of David Copperfield’s unconventional numbers require technology. Appearing from the empty box riding a motorbike, making more than 15 people disappear out of a sudden, walking through a wall are just a few examples of performances which most probably couldn’t be successful without technology. But just as told before, the show is not entirely about eccentric things but also about communication between the entertainer and his audience and simple tricks, for which the technology is unnecessary. The answer is yes, David Copperfield uses a lot the technology to create the illusion of impossible, but the show doesn’t contain only this kind of numbers and doesn’t exceed in technology.
