A world famous artist and talented magician

In his native Cuba in 1980, the young Ernesto Planas Roldan saw an act by a talented magician and decided that this was something he wanted to try. Showing an amazing aptitude for magic, by 1986 Ernesto was Artistic Director of La Compania Magica Caribena and later became the company’s CEO. His skill and charismatic personality earned him numerous awards. However, a car accident in 1990 left Ernesto unable to walk and it was feared that he would be confined to a wheelchair for life. Undeterred, he developed his Close Up show in 1991. By 1992 Ernesto Planas could not only walk again, but had won awards for his exciting new close up magic techniques. The first Cuban to win the prestigious International Grand Prix, Ernesto relocated to Italy in 1999, where he began a new career – as a dancer. However, he was persuaded back into magic in 2007, and his incredible talents have established Ernesto as one of the top magicians and illusionists working today.
