Dark Horse Cassandra: The Songstress of Magic

About This Show

Cassandra, “The Songstress of Magic” invites you to experience her journey as a magician. Through jaw-dropping sleight-of hand, innovative illusions, and musical vignettes of magic, Cassandra shares her story of keeping secrets and revealing heart.

The term “Dark Horse” refers to a winner that unexpectedly climbs to success. In this show, Cassandra confronts experiences with overcoming the obstacle of finding her voice (both literally and figuratively). While shining a light on issues of gender inequality, physical/mental struggles, and claiming her place in the artistic world as a magician, she emerges triumphantly in what can only be described as magic.

about the artist

Cassandra, who is also referred to as Manhattan’s “Songstress of Magic,” exudes a unique sense of Old Hollywood glamour and a quirky sense of humor that the New York Times described as “Magical!”   Born and raised in New York, Cassandra started performing at 8 years old. By 16, she began winning opera competitions. She studied voice at Mannes School of Music and Westminster Choir College. Her unique combination of powerful singing and sophisticated feats of prestidigitation has brought her around the world, to TV, and now to Dixon Place!
