Siegfried & Roy

Siegfried & Roy StatueIt seems incredible, especially to those of us in Las Vegas, but this coming Saturday, October 3, 2009, it will have been 6 years since they regularly performed at the Mirage Hotel & Casino.

Details are sketchy about Roy's tigery injury, but we do know that Montecore, the show's star 7-year-old white tiger bit Roy on the neck, ending the show's run.

However, Siegfried & Roy are not ones to give up their Masters of the Impossible title easily, promising to perform together at least one more time. With Roy's injury, though, few expected they could pull this off.

Sure enough, this past February, they returned to the stage with their illusions in a short 10-minute performance to benefit the building of the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute. It was filmed for 20/20, and the full episode, including the performance, is currently preserved on YouTube.

Enjoy this look back at the career of Siegfried & Roy, and marvel at their resolve to accomplish this 1-night return:
