“My favourite thing about performing magic for my audience, is the wonder that it brings. Everything else past or present fades away. Seeing the magic in the moment makes you really present. The element of surprise delights the senses and we are returned to a child awe, unable to explain what we just saw. I’ve been fortunate enough to make this my life’s work, a career out of performing the extraordinary.” quote from Rosanna Valentina
Outstanding in the field of magic and illusion, Rosanna is a world class performer. Enthralling audiences from various countries, cultures and ages world wide. Featured in films, functions and many festivals & international events.
Proof that ‘anything is possible’ through dedication, tenacity and good humour, Rosanna forged her way to become one of the few professional female magicians in Australia.
Hand picked by the Humour Foundation to be a professional ‘Clown Doctor’ a role she devoted herself for over 15yrs from 1998. Rosanna is a highly valued entertainer, distracting & creating heartfelt humour, she worked alongside medical staff, to support children in very difficult times.
“It was profoundly moving work. It was an honour and a privilege to be granted this opportunity to cheer up distressed children, providing much needed, heartfelt comedy relief and beautiful moments for the whole family”
In 2015, Rosanna joined forces with “World Champion of Comedy Magic”, Sam Angelico in the production of “Illusionaire Magic Show” which ran successfully in Melbourne till 2020.
“One of my favourite quotes is: ‘life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away’ …. for me, it’s creating magical moments, a gift of joy'”
When she was young she never missed a magic special of ‘David Copperfield’ and ‘Doug Henning’. She loved how the magic made her believe in the impossible. She wanted to know how it all worked. This lead for her to develop an insatiable appetite to learn magic that still drives her to this day.
“A Magician and fabulous mentor, took me under his wing & taught me ‘the ropes’ in magic in my early 20’s. Dave Lord from Brisbane, was the one who taught me ‘the professors nightmare’ rope trick, my very first professional magic effect. I’m forever grateful to all my mentors that furthered my craft . Thankyou!”
Her mentors include internationally award winning magicians: Sam Angelico (Melb), Tim Ellis (Melb), “Dan the Magic Man” Brand(GC), Doc Eason(USA) and Greg Willson (USA), The Valentines (Aus), Mike Van Acker and Phil Cass (Aus). They taught her close up magic, pathos, stage craft & assisted her in developing her own corporate stage shows and productions.
It was a natural progression in 2020 that Rosanna established her own magic school called “Rosanna Valentina’s School of Magic” on the Gold Coast, Australia. She is an active committee member of the “Gold Coast Magic Club”. Here she is inspiring the next generation of up and coming magicians, teaching students the classics in magic for the young and the young at heart.
