A stunning routine of unparalleled talent! The cups and balls with clear glasses - transparent cups. Antonio breaks new ground in close up magic with this effect. What an idea and what entertainment.
"Antonio breaks new ground in close-up magic. What a fabulous idea." - Arturo de Ascanio
"In my lifetime, I've seen some of the greatest "CUPS N BALL" routines performed by Dai Vernon, Mike Ammar, John Thompson, Charlie Miller, Johnny Paul and the many others with brilliant routines and moves & sleights. Antonio's routine is smashing and completely blew me away! You don't need an expensive set of cups for the cups and balls routine! Antonio has simplified it and oh how he has done it!" - Joe Stevens
Even if you don't want to do a full three cups routine you could easily boil this down to a stunning single cups routine. You could also do this with a bit of preparation impromptu if you have sponge balls on you. Borrow three transparent cups, wrap a paper around it and off you go. The possibilities are endless.
Antonio performs and explains the routine silently with a voice over in English by Rafael Benatar.

What an excellent routine! Extremely visual and the DVD explains it all thoroughly - even though there is English voice over, it is very easy to follow along. Great price as well. I have seen Paul Daniel's chop cup routine as well as a live performance by Mr. Paul Gertner that used steel ball bearings for the balls. Both of those routines are amazing. This one is right up there as one of my favorites and I cannot wait to be able to perform this. You won't be disappointed with this one!
