Michael Grandinetti

Symphony of Illusions





"Internationally recognized magician and illusionist Michael Grandinetti put on the best live magic show of 2018.  His presentation skills were second to none and he was able to touch his audience on an emotional level.  Grandinetti proved beyond a doubt that he is a true master illusionist".

Not an ordinary magic show, "Magic On The Cutting Edge" is an interactive event that pushes the audience's expectations of magic to new limits.  Legendary magic plots of levitation, escapes, sawing in half, teleportation, and more are reimagined for today's audiences, making them more visual, surprising, and even more mind-boggling than ever before.  The show is designed to engage the entire audience and to pull them directly into the magic. 

Entertainment Weekly heralds Michael Grandinetti as a “great magician…with charisma and an easy rapport with an audience”.  With performances on national and international television, in stadiums, arenas, casinos, The White House, theaters around the country and symphony orchestras, Grandinetti has established himself as a major force in the world of illusion, with wide, mainstream appeal.

He has performed at Heinz Hall with renowned composer Marvin Hamlisch and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra as well as with the Grand Rapids Symphony Orchestra, Huntsville Symphony Orchestra, Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Phoenix Symphony Orchestra, and the Augusta Symphony.

While each orchestra performs their chosen themed music to accompany his illusions, Grandinetti performs such feats as transforming a tuxedo into the orchestra’s conductor, making roses bloom on stage, levitating into the air while surrounded by the performing orchestra, and, for a finale, getting the orchestra to read the minds of the audience by playing pieces of music they were thinking of.

Grandinetti has truly made “magic” his life’s work, studying, consulting, creating and performing original illusions for audiences around the world.  You can see Michael starring on the CW television series “Masters of Illusion”, now in its fifth season and airing in over 100 countries.

Through his work, Michael Grandinetti is making the art of magic modern, innovative, charismatic, and exciting while showing audiences around the world that nothing is impossible.

“Abracadabra is no longer the appropriate way to conjure up a spell.  Magic has found a new catch phrase and it goes ‘Michael Grandinetti!’  With a mind of illusion and a charming smile, Grandinetti made dividing a woman in half look effortless. The audience was smitten, chanting their ooh’s and aah’s.”

-Samara O’Shea, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Review Byham Theater, Pittsburgh, PA

“Michael Grandinetti was phenomenal at The Paramount in Huntington on Long Island. He gave them a magic show to remember for a long time, and even the few skeptics in the audience were in total awe. He commanded the stage the entire time, where his love and passion for his craft were clearly evident and appreciated by all. His talent is top-notch, and his warm and humble personality stands out by a mile. His live magic show at The Paramount earned five out of five stars.”
