Abstract:

In 1846, Vogler's Magnetic Health Theater has developed quite a controversial reputation for its mesmerizing performances. The troupe consists of magician Dr. Albert Emanuel Vogler, his assistant Aman (his wife Manda disguised as a man), Granny the elderly potion mistress, coach driver Simson, and the sly barker Tubal. On the outskirts of Stockholm, Consul Abraham Egerman, Police Chief Starbeck, and Dr. Vergerus, the Royal Medical Adviser meet and detain them. These men believe the magician to be a charlatan, and are suspicious of his supposedly astonishing magic show, and demand to inspect it for themselves before it is shown to the general public. So a private show is performed as Vergerus and Vogler engage in their own battle of wills. Who will win this conflict between science and superstition?
