This majestic masterpiece boasts of over 60 horses.Cavalia’s Odysseo is the equine creation of Normand Latourell, one of the co-founders of Cirque du Soleil. This majestic masterpiece boasts of over 60 horses and more than 50 performers who deliver pure theatrical magic.
Be prepared to be mesmerized by the intoxicating beauty of horses! These magnificent animals are the true stars of the show. They act more like wild horses than trained performers. What is so amazing about this show is that no whips are used to direct the horses. They perform all by hand and whispers.
There were also the trick riders, who vaulted and danced on their sprinting horse.An audience favorite was the troupe of acrobats from Guinea who perform some extreme tumbling and dance across the arena. Their feats of physicality were amazing. The show also features pole ballet and Poweriser jumping tricks. There were also the trick riders, who vaulted and danced on their sprinting horses and aerial artists twirling and spinning from the ceiling.
The simplistic 3D visuals not only enhance the scenery, but add to its magic. Projected on 3 large screens behind the man-made hillside, these stunning views of nature take you on a breath taking journey through various landscapes ranging from an African savannah to Easter Island.
Odyssseo’s finale is awe-inspiring.Odyssseo’s finale is awe-inspiring. It was truly worth the price of the show. I won’t give it away, but it was truly amazing to see these stallions in all of their glory as if you were watching them in the wild. It may be a big white tent, but inside it is very intimate and there are no bad seats in the house. The show was absolutely amazing and perfect for all ages.
