Stage illusions are large-scale magic tricks. As the name implies, stage illusions are distinct from all other types of magic in that they are performed a considerable distance away from the audience, usually on a stage, in order to maintain the illusion.[1] Stage illusions usually use large props and may involve the use of assistants or large animals.[2] Examples of stage illusions include sawing a woman in half and Lady-to-Tiger.
