Siegfried & Roy are unlike any performers
in the history of magic or show business.
They blazed phenomenal new trails in the world of legerdemain, as well as virtually every aspect of live performance. They envisioned a future for magic and mainstream entertainment of such phenomenal scope and depth that it was, and remains, theirs alone. Their exceptional vision, passion, creativity, and commitment to delivering the ultimate theatrical experience brought these two superstars critical acclaim and global celebrity.
Like the artists themselves, Siegfried & Roy: Unique in All the World will be a landmark publication, establishing a new standard of creativity and excellence, both in and out of the world of magic. Siegfried & Roy: Unique in All the World: the collector’s limited edition of 500 copies, will contain a virtual vault of personal stories, insights and anecdotes, and a wealth of replicated and actual memorabilia items, many seen for the first time. It is the definitive tribute to two remarkable gentlemen with incredible talents, vision, and foresight who re-defined event entertainment in Las Vegas and the world.
Using exact facsimile reproductions of rare memorabilia and never-before-published documents and artifacts, Siegfried & Roy: Unique in All the World will immerse the reader in their extraordinary spirit and magical world like never before. Drawn from private collectors, as well as Siegfried & Roy’s own archives, the book affords intimate glimpses into the creativity and vision that has guided the lives and careers of these two precedent-setting artists. Rare historical show posters and tickets, personal Christmas cards, tour marketing materials and merchandise, costume and set designs, photographs, handwritten letters and notes, actual swatches from costumes and stage materials and so much more will be faithfully reproduced or included. Many of these items are designed to be removable for the reader’s examination and pleasure.
As no single author can bring this unique tribute to Siegfried & Roy to life, editor Diana S. Zimmerman, herself a former magician, award-winning journalist and now best-selling novelist, is gathering the greatest minds in magic and show business to provide their personal insights and perspectives into the life and career of Siegfried & Roy.
The book will also explore with Siegfried & Roy in their own words, how they realized their extraordinary dreams, charting new paths where no model existed, how they conceived and created a show that changed the face of Las Vegas entertainment, and created previously non-existing opportunities for magicians and variety performers alike.
Under the direction of Executive Producer and Assistant Content Editor, Paul Stone, a portion of the proceeds from book sales will benefit the SARMOTI Foundation and MagicCares™.
