Airia is exclusive to Australian audiences onboard Carnival Splendor

Sydney, 4 December 2019 – Carnival Cruise Line has premiered its new aerial illusion show, Airia, on Carnival Splendor’s first sailing to Australia from Singapore.

Exclusively designed to mystify and entrance Australian guests onboard Carnival Splendor, this awe-inspiring show is packed with magic, remarkable aerial stunts, dazzling costumes and an infectious soundtrack.

Home-grown talent, Aleisha Manion, is “Airia” in this thrilling 40-minute spectacular suitable for the whole family. Born in New Zealand, Aleisha discovered her love of dance and theatre and moved to Australia to learn her craft. She is joined onstage by the international Carnival Playlist Productions cast.

Jennifer Vandekreeke, Vice President and General Manager Australia, Carnival Cruise Line said: “The art of magic has been dominated by men for centuries, but that changes today. Aleisha challenges the norm through her incredible illusion skills paired with acrobatics and, of course, natural grace. “

“So, come onboard Carnival Splendor and experience this visually striking show for yourself – and don’t forget to prepare for a magical evening unlike anything you’ve seen before!”
