Omar Pasha – Official website

Fourth generation in magical black art… and still timeless. We are proud to have handed on this famous tradition to our son Louis-Olivier.                                            read more below…     


In this completely renewed website, we tell you our history with the travelling Omar Pasha act. We start at the origin of this specific magical art.

You will also come to learn that we had a life before magic as well as a magical life before Omar Pasha ! 

Before magic ? For Michelle & Ernest, life was previously dedicated to professional contemporary ballet. For Louis-Olivier, photography was his first training and passion.

Magic before Omar Pasha ? Michelle & Ernest were already performing internationally their own magical black art acts.
