February 27, 2013 — 2 Comments

The company, founded by Normand Latourelle, has an expertise in the equestrian and performing arts, and is known for making the most of cutting-edge technology, multimedia, and special effects, which allows for the creation of magical, unique, never-before-seen theatrical experiences.

The internationally acclaimed Cavalia pushes the limits of live entertainment with its newest production that is now on tour. Cavalia Odysseo is a theatrical experience, an ode to horse and man that marries the equestrian arts, awe-inspiring acrobatics, and high-tech theatrical effects.

Audiences will be transported around the world as more than 50 horses and an international cast play and demonstrate their intimate bond. The 1,393 square meter stage features a real carousel and a magically appearing 302,000-litre lake in front of a stunning video backdrop the size of three IMAX screens. Odysseo is a two-hour dream that will move the heart and touch the soul. It is an evening that you will never forget.



Set under a 38-meter tall White Big Top, is a traffic stopping addition to the Los Angeles skyline. When you enter, you are immediately transported into a lavish and comfortable environment reminiscent of any permanent theatre. An exclusive VIP area hosts rendez-vous VIP ticket holders for dining, an open bar, a chance to meet the artists after the show, and a private tour of the stables.



From your seats you will become part of a truly immersive, three-dimensional experience as a state-of-the-art video screen projects images that transport you to a world of dreams. Beginning in a misty, enchanted forest where a herd of horses graze and frolic under a sky of rolling clouds and a setting sun, Odysseo travels to some of nature’s greatest wonders. Without ever leaving your seats you will see the desert and savanna of Africa, the American Southwest, the Northern Lights, an ice cave, verdant fields, and Easter Island.


Shrouded in a blue mist rising from the earth, you will find yourself amid a herd of grazing horses, admiring the splendour of the setting sun. Lying on a bed of green, you can contemplate what the stars dream about, what horses dream about. Follow the northern lights as they dance across the heavens. Revel in the birth of spring.


This new production is a celebration of the beauty and harmony of the meeting of two worlds: those of horse and human. As friends, partners and inseparable performers, they will lead you on a journey to another world – a world of dreams.

Through a symphony of colours and emotions, a series of wonders will unfold. In this intimate yet grandiose setting, humans and horses live in harmony. Surrounded by awe-inspiring images and accompanied by live music, horses and artists – acrobats, dancers, musicians and riders – will take you on a journey to a world where dreams and reality intertwine.
