The Past And the Future


First of all best wishes for 2012, looks like it is going to be a great year and we will be there to bring magic and illusion into your lives!

Let us take a look back at 2011 and have a look at the main things that we achieved during the past year.

January - April 2011
Ongoing performances across Malta and Gozo for hotels which included Coastline and Mellieha Bay Hotel as well as for private events and other functions.
In February we took a few days to visit Valencia where we provided a close up performance during a private event and after continued on to Benidorm where we were planning to spend the summer season performing, plans that eventually went astray later on during the year due to other commitments.
Started working on new acts and new illusions for our show.
Contracted Steve Saunders from Magitracks.com to compose custom made original music for acts to set us apart from others who use commercial music for their shows.

April-May 2011
Performed on the Color Magic and Color Fantasy cruise Ships between Oslo and Kiel.

June - October 2011
Began the summer season in Malta with ongoing performances across the islands for private events and hotels including Riviera Hotel and Mellieha Bay Hotel.
In July we took over a dinner show at Razzett L-Antik and transformed it into a popular attraction called the Chamber of Mysteries http://www.chamberofmysteries.com


October 2011
Started weekly slots as resident magician/illusionists during two weekly television programmes, one for children called L-Imqarbin which was shown on Favourite TV and went on till end Of December 2011 with a total of 13 performances and one on NET TV called Sas-Sitta with Spiteri Lucas Entertainment which is still currently going and should include 39 performances till the end of the seasonal programme.
Visited Barcelona to perform some magic and lecture about the use of lose up levitation methods for a group of Spanish magicians.

November 2011
Performed at the Manoel Theatre (Teatru Manoel) during the 'Magical Variety' a show produced by Bleep Entertainment and Teatru Manoel.
After a few months of opening the Chmaber Of Mysteries, we requried a larger performing space and therefore we decided to transform and refurbish the Chamber and commenced works on the refurbishment project.
Began weekly appearances as resident illusionists at the Buskett Roadhouse in a cabaret show called Spectaculesqe

December 2011
Started filming on various projects as well as performed in various hotels and venues across Malta and during various staff functions.
Almost completed works on the Chamber Of Mysteries, now with a fully refurbished chamber, better seating and a larger performing area whilst maintaining an intimate atmosphere.
The last performance for 2011 was at The Grand Hotel in Gozo on New Year's Eve, where guests that attended the great gala dinner were offered a variety of illusions, magic and fun.

So as one can see, we had a great year packed with magic and illusion for all which consisted of various close up, parlour, television and stage performances across Malta and Gozo as well as in Spain, Germany and Norway.

2012 is now here and we are involved in many projects and shows and performances on television, in hotels at the Chamber Of Mysteries and other venues.

Works at the Chamber of Mysteries are almost completed, we just need to set the lights and put back the props. We have now a larger performing area and can include some items that couldn't have been included earlier on. Also during the works we have discovered more items that we have decided to put into the show. The Chamber re opens for all on the 16th Of January 2012 with the first three shows sold out! We have changed the days and are now performing on Mondays and Wednesdays. If you intend to visit Malta, then it is a place you must visit! www.chamberofmysteries.com



On television our year starts off with an interesting program which airs today on NET TV on the program Quadro. This program will bring the audience at home information abou the history of Magic in Malta with some rare footage of past magicians as well as footage from the present magicians and some unique footage taken especially for this program. Parts of the Magical Variety which was filmed last November will also be aired.

We continue to appear on the weekly program Sas-Sitta on Net TV every Saturday afternoon where each week we present a different illusion or magic act for audiences at home.

Through out the year we have other guest appearances on television, on different stations so look out for us!

We should continue appearing at Buskett Soadhouse during the Spectaculesque cabaret show.

We will continue appearing in a few hotels hotels across Malta, our main hotel being Mellieha Bay Hotel due to the excellent stage and backstage facilities offered there which is ideal for our show.

In the pipeline we have many other projects including some new illusions and preparing some new acts plus giving twists to older acts we have in order to update them for 2012.

We hope to see you or at least we hope you get to see us perform somewhere.
