Penn and Teller
Tuesday 14 April 2020 to Tuesday 21 April 2020
Penn and Teller will bring their record-breaking Las Vegas live show to Sydney for eight performances at the Capitol Theatre.
Penn and Teller’s Australian tour was originally scheduled for January 2020 but was unable to proceed due to Teller requiring urgent back surgery. As the Opera House’s largest internal venue, the Concert Hall, is closed while major renewal works are undertaken from February this year, the Opera House will now present the rescheduled season of Penn and Teller at the Capitol Theatre to accommodate the huge response and demand from audiences.
The life-long friends, with a career together spanning almost half a century, have redefined popular magic for over 40 years with their unusual mix of mind-blowing magic tricks, comedy and ‘blunders’. The pair are stars of the acclaimed Showtime series Penn & Teller: BS!, which received 13 Emmy nominations and was the longest-running series in the history of the network. True pop culture stalwarts, the duo has performed in hit television shows, including Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family and The Simpsons, and they share a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
