SOPAC presents "An Evening of Wonders" with Vitaly

(SOUTH ORANGE, NJ) -- Combining breathtaking visuals with his captivating style, Vitaly takes audiences on aninteractive and magical theatrical experience in his show An Evening of Wonders on Saturday, March 9, 2024 at South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC). Showtime is 8:00pm.

Perfect for the whole family, Vitaly blends art and illusion to illustrate the story of his transformation from a boy with a dream to a man with a vision of the world in which the rules of reality do not exist.  In this world, paintings spring to life, photographs become mini-movies, and audience members see their faces vanish from their own driver’s licenses.  Even time reverses as bare broken branches visibly repair and renew themselves with the green leaves of spring.

Vitaly invented and designed every illusion in this surprisingly touching show—many of which touch on the tender topics of love, loss, and growing old.  Not only will the audience witness elegant renderings of the impossible, but they will be charmed by Vitaly’s engaging personality.  After discovering magic when he was 14 years old, Vitaly spent years entertaining his friends and family.  Eventually, he would abandon a career in engineering to focus on rebuilding people’s childlike sense of wonder and bridging the gap between dreams and reality.

Tickets range from $35-$49 and are available for purchase online. SOPAC is located at One Sopac Way in South Orange, New Jersey.

Vitaly, a world-class illusionist, is widely renowned for his dazzling talents. After discovering magic when he was 14 years old, Vitaly spent years entertaining his friends and family. Eventually, he would abandon a career in engineering to focus on rebuilding people’s childlike sense of wonder and bridging the gap between dreams and reality. His personal goal is to “restore jaw-dropping wonder to our jaded generation by making the impossible possible.”
