Cavalia’s all-new spectacle, comes to Miami March 13, 2012
Cavalia, whose horse-and-human production received standing ovations and critical acclaim in Miami in 2010, announced today that, in partnership with the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County, it will make Miami its second US tour stop for its all-new show. Set to open March 13, 2012, Odysseo will be performed at the same site as in 2010 – Bicentennial Park in downtown Miami – but this time under a White Big Top more than twice the size.
Surrounded by awe-inspiring projections and visual effects, some 70 horses and 55 artists embark together on a journey, travelling through amazing natural landscapes. “The horse has been a partner of humanity throughout the ages,” explained Normand Latourelle, President and Artistic Director of Cavalia. “It’s thanks to horses that humans imagined they could travel to the ends of the earth. This powerful and natural wonder of an animal, enabled mankind to bridge cultures, to create alliances amongst people, and thus to freely roam the planet. He has been one of the most important instruments in the evolution of humanity. This is the essence of Odysseo.”
Cavalia’s new production marries the equestrian arts, stage arts and high-tech theatrical effects at never-before-seen levels. The 80-ton technical grid, as big as that found in the best-equipped permanent theaters in the world, supports lighting, a full-size merry-go-round, and 18 cinema projectors that create high-definition landscape backdrops on screens twice the size of a standard IMAX. These scenes surround the world’s largest touring stage, 27,000 square feet, rendering Odysseo a 5-D mega-production, a feast for the eyes that still succeeds in delivering the spectacular with soul.
Tickets are available under the White Big Top at Bicentennial Park in downtown Miami. You can also go online at cavalia.net or call 1-866-999-8111.
