A few days ago our Dad Blogger, Robert, had the opportunity to experience Cavalia’s newest show, Odysseo, in Burbank with his family and shares all about it. Here is what he has to share about this fantastic show.
Cavalia’s newest production, Odysseo, is a magical blend of acrobatics of a Cirque du Soleil type show and also a championship equestrian show. The staging is set is like no other and extremely impressive. The two hour show is held in the largest tent of it’s kind. The tent is over ten stories high, with a video backdrop that is the size of three IMAX movie screens, providing a lush atmosphere for the horses and cast to present the show.
The horses are truly the stars of the show. There are as many as 60 horses participating in each production. The horses perform amazing feats throughout the show, but are also granted the freedom to express themselves when they feel the need, all within the confines of a show. The production focuses on the long and unique relationship that has developed between humans and horses. The show also features acrobats and aerialists. They have a way of wowing the audience, but also using their talents to accentuate the beauty and intelligence of the horses without upstaging them.
Far and away, my favorite part of the show was when an actual life sized carousel descended from the ceiling. I don’t want to give away too much, but I will say this, horses, aerialists, acrobats, in combination with a life sized carousel, made quite the show stuffer and provided a visual stunning ending to the show.
Cavalia’s Odysseo, will play under the big white tent in Downtown Burbank until the end of March. You can purchase tickets by heading here. It is a fantastic show and if you are looking for something special to do with the family, you don’t want to miss out on this! For additional info head here.
