Horse lover? Art lover? Movie Lover? No matter which one you are, I can assure you Odysseo by Cavalia will blow you away.
I was lucky to attend one of the showings and when I first heard about Odysseo, I knew very little about the show. The only thing I knew was that it involved horses and was a circus type act. I can honestly say it was waaaaaay more than that. It was an immersive and surreal display involving live music, amazing acrobats, gymnasts, artists, equesterians and 65 absolutely beautiful horses.
Fun fact: Odysseo is a Canadian production with an international cast, the horses, crew, artists, musicians, equestrians, gymnasts…they are from all over the world!
The show took place under the White Big Top, a huge state of the art tent with jaw dropping decor inside. The decor (which reminded me of a mystical and magical forest/world) as well as the use of technology to make the show come alive was truly spectacular, I’ve truthfully never ever seen a show like this one. It was seriously two hours of wonder, I was in awed the whole time. The music and the stunts gave me chills and I felt as if I was a little kid again attending the circus for the first time.
I was super lucky to receive backstage priviledges which included visiting the beautiful (and super talented) horses and their amazing groomers in the stables. As an animal lover, my excitement was over the roof. I took like a million pictures 🙈 It was extra nice because I got to ask them questions about the horses and see some of the horses in training (Hi beautiful black Canadian horsies 😍).
