Siegfried & Roy ink life pact

Pair cuts back on workload; raises ticket price

LAS VEGAS — Magicians Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn are today expected to announce a new pact that will keep them as headliners at the MGM-Mirage for the remainder of their careers.

The partners, who debuted their multimillion-dollar magic and wild animals show at the Mirage on Feb. 1, 1990, will be cutting back a bit on their workload. Under the terms of the new deal, they will perform eight shows per week instead of the previous 10. Contract compensation was not disclosed.

Siegfried, 61, and Roy, 56, are likely to perform for at least five more years, a spokesman said. Their new ticket price is making record news as well. All seats for the “Siegfried & Roy” show are now priced at $100.50. The duo join Cirque du Soleil’s “O” in breaking the Las Vegas $100 ticket barrier.
