I read these two sentences in Collins dictionary.

These highlights attempt to capture the magic.

It's thriving and this new show captures the magic.

What's the meaning of 'capture the magic'?


Lexico's definition 2 of capture is

Record accurately in words or pictures.

And definition 1.2 of magic is

A quality of being beautiful and delightful in a way that seems remote from daily life.

So the new show accurately records that quality: encapsulates it perhaps. The highlights attempt to do likewise.
