Cavalia Odysseo is poetry in motion, a unique and magical theatrical production that marries the equestrian arts and stage arts at never-before-seen levels. Manitoba audiences will be transported once again on an epic journey into a dreamlike world by this breathtaking extravaganza featuring 65 magnificent horses and 50 talented riders, acrobats, dancers and musicians. This spectacular celebration of horse and man, imagined by Normand Latourelle, renowned for combining different forms of artistic expression and reinventing the scenic space, is an absolute feast for the eyes that expands the definition of performance into an epic yet soulful experience.
Cavalia Odysseo’s mind-boggling theatrical effects are as spectacular as they are numerous, and they include a state-of-the art projection screen which is three times the size of the world’s largest movie screen, a life-size merry-go-round and a real lake made of 40,000 gallons of recycled water, which emerges for a splashing finale. The show’s four-legged stars play and perform with freedom, highlighting a magical relationship with their human counterparts while creating an entertainment phenomenon unlike anything seen across the world today. Deploying their extraordinary talents, Cavalia Odysseo’s acrobats interact with the horses and the audience and perform using a unique combination of force and sensitivity, while live musicians and vocalists immerse spectators of all ages in an enchanting, unforgettable multi-sensory experience they will remember forever.
Cavalia Odysseo, the largest, most technologically advanced touring show in the world, has already mesmerized more than 2 million spectators in Canada, the United States and Mexico since its Montreal, Canada, world premiere in 2011. Still wowing critics and audiences alike across North America, Cavalia Odysseo will conclude its California and Arizona engagements before proudly returning to Canada next spring.
