Saturday April 4, 7 pm
Walker Court, Art Gallery of Ontario

This event has been postponed.


Be teleported into the Golden Age of Magic. Join us Under the Spiral Staircase for an evening of mentalism, magic, illusion and song. The Sentimentalists will take a journey into your mind, you will experience spirit communication with Nicolas Wallace as well as witness the impossible from world-renowned magician Richard Forget. Crooner Richard Herfeld will set the stage with songs of the era, with live piano accompaniment.

Featuring acts seen on America’s Got Talent, Penn & Teller: Fool Us and other major television networks.

Mysterion is a legend in Canadian mentalism. He has appeared on hundreds of TV shows, in print and on radio. Steffi Kay is connoisseur of all things vintage and has a knack for knowing what's on your mind. Together they take their love of vintage and magic and have formed an incredible two-person mind-reading show, The Sentimentalists

Richard Forget is an international award-winning magician with a show that places him at the forefront of the magic world. He has created a magnificent magical experience that is inspired by his years traveling throughout the world and performing for a wide variety of mesmerized audiences.

Nicholas Wallace is a practitioner in the art of astonishment, although he can best be described as a minimalist — he forgoes fancy props and special effects and prefers to conjure with his audience’s imagination by presenting magic and mind-reading in a way that is both entertaining and thought-provoking.

Richard Herfeld’s golden voice brings back the magic of the Jazz age and his haunting melodies are like an incantation of the past.  Originally from Frankfurt, he has performed all over the world alongside some of the best in the world of vintage music. For this evening, he had selected some tunes with a magic theme from his extensive repertoire.
