Part equestrian event and part multimedia interpretive dance, Cavalia: Odysseo is filled with gorgeous costumes, intricate sets and stunning showmanship!
Through Jan. 8, 2012
The White Big Top (Midtown on the corner of Spring and 8th streets)
Tucked beneath the world’s largest touring big top tent, the show has made its US premiere in Atlanta. Combining the enthralling acrobatics of Cirque du Soleil with breathtaking steeds, Cavalia: Odysseo is an homage to the harmony between horse and human. Accompanied by live musicians and a vocalist, more than 70 horses and 40 performers create an ethereal dreamscape of intertwining figments and storylines which prance along the fringe of comprehension. Says Normand Latourelle (Cavalia’s President and Artistic Director) of the enchanting exhibition, horses have allowed humans to “… travel to the ends of the world. This animal enabled mankind to build bridges between cultures, to create alliances … and thus freely roam the planet.”
The verdict is in - Cavalia: Odysseo is the Atlanta’s must-see show of the holiday season!
