Magician Sebastian Nicolas’ first love has remained the same throughout his young life - magic achieved through deftness and sleight of hand. After receiving the title of World Vice Champion and the award of the renowned “Mandrake d‘Or” of the French Academy of Illusionists, a prize won earlier by such famous magicians as David Copperfield and Siegfried and Roy, did Nicolas’ lasting impact touch audiences across the globe. Enthusiastic fans throughout the world revel in his surrealistic, classic artistry. Nicolas’s specialty is manipulation. He has submerged himself in classical magic, bringing about miracles solely by the mastery of his hands. Combining dexterity, precision and grace, Nicolas has distilled a lifetime of training into a devious display of dancing digits. His mind-boggling finger moves are so masterful that the audience is left to wonder if what their eyes have seen is truly possible.  

Multi-award-winning dancers, Deng Lin & Miao Changwei perform with precision and ultimate elegance as the Swan Prince and his Princess.

With the additional use of acrobatic skills, including somersaults, inverted and jujitsu, the Swan Princess dances on her Prince’s body, shoulders and head.
