The first and only protégé of world-renowned magicians Siegfried & Roy, Romeo currently appears six days-a-week at The Smoky Mountain Opry™ Theater in Pigeon Forge, TN. Romeo is known for his combination of live singing with the art of magic and illusion for a one-of-a-kind magical performance. He previously performed in his own show as “Siegfried & Roy presents, Darren Romeo” at the Mirage Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and all over the world. He has also performed at Caesar’s Palace and the Flamingo Hilton in Las Vegas; at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, Calif.; and other venues such as the Eldorado Resort Casino in Reno, Nev.; Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Miss.; and Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel and Casino, (N.J.).
One of the most awarded magicians in the history of magic, Romeo has garnered an extensive list of accolades including:
“Magician of the Year” from the Magic Castle, The Academy of Magical Arts, Inc., “Show of the Year” (two years in a row) from the Branson Critic Association and the Milbourne Christopher Award for Notable Contributions to the “Art of Magic” from The Society of American Magicians (SAM).
In addition to all of the large illusions that audiences would expect to see on stage from Siegfried & Roy’s protégé, Romeo performs close-up magic and sleight of hand tricks in the show as well. Two large video screens complement the show as well as music, dancers, elaborate sets, magnificent costumes and state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems.
Also Romeo carries on Harry Blackstone Jr.’s legacy by performing his famous “Floating Light Bulb” Illusion. He is the only magician in the world granted permission from the Blackstone family to perform this tribute.
