Illusio is an extravagant show reviving the fascinating Broadway musical tradition in St Petersburg. Created by an international team of producers, choreographers, costume and graphic designers, Illusio features world champions in acrobatics and pole dance, finalists of popular TV shows and star actors. Two of the choreographers are Vera Arbuzova (Sofit prize winner, ballerina of the Mikhailovsky Theatre and the Eifman Ballet) and Vyacheslav Kulayev (one of the creators behind the XXII Sochi Winter Olympic Games opening ceremony). Movement director Quinny Sacks is well known for her work as choreographer in Troy (2004) and Shakespeare in Love (1998). Famous Russian fashion designers, such as Alena Akhmadullina, created costumes for this show, and its stage scenery was co-developed with Pavel Kaplevich.
Illusio is a unique theatrical performance where musical theatre meets modern and academic ballet, live music, folk art and multimedia.
