Marco the Magi is Cesareo Pelaez, the founder, producer, director, designer, and choreographer of Le Grand David.

He began to organize his troupe in the early 1970s. A biography of Pelaez (Wonderful Surprises, author Avrom Surath) was published in April 2007 relating Pelaez's early experiences growing up in Cuba, his work with noted psychologist Abraham Maslow, his founding Le Grand David Spectacular Magic Company, and his ongoing work with the company through the present day.[1][2][3]

Pelaez passed away peacefully after a long battle with congestive heart failure.[4]
