About Franz Harary
In the history of magic, Franz Harary stands alone as the first world-class magician to design and perform illusions entirely of his own creation. His technical achievements in magic know no equal and his international tours are unparalleled in the industry.
Harary’s own illusion show, Imagine Nation, is the largest touring illusion show in the world and continues to play to sell out crowds across Asia and the Far East.
It all started for Harary many years ago when he sent a videotape of his illusions to Michael Jackson, and it was his successful collaboration with The King of Pop that caused his career to skyrocket. His initial illusion designs so impressed the singer that Harary soon found himself designing all of the illusions for Jackson’s now famous Victory Tour. Since then, Harary’s credits read like a Who’s Who of the music industry, with clients of all musical genres.
Through his use of cutting edge technologies and innovative illusions, Harary single-handedly made magic a viable element for today’s concert productions.
