"The Magic of the Wizard's Dream" is the third single recorded by Italian symphonic power metal band Rhapsody, released in 2005.

The title track was originally part of their 2004 album Symphony of Enchanted Lands II: The Dark Secret and is reproposed here in basically two versions: one with a slightly faster tempo and the album one. The faster version is sung by Fabio Lione, with Christopher Lee as a guest, in four different languages (English, Italian, French and German) plus an orchestral mix of the English one.

Other songs include "Autumn Twilight", a fast-paced track, and "Lo Specchio d'Argento" ("The Silver Mirror") a power ballad with Italian lyrics.
