Following two very successful engagements in Toronto in 2012 and 2015, Odysseo by Cavalia returns to Ontario this summer with its debut run in Mississauga. The $30 million theatrical extravaganza that expands the definition of performance into an epic yet soulful experience, will be presented under the White Big Top next to the Hershey Centre in Mississauga starting in June.
With Odysseo, you are in for a treat – actually many, many visual treats. You will be transported on an epic journey to some of nature’s greatest wonders by this spectacular production featuring 65 horses of 11 different breeds and 48 riders, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, stilt walkers and musicians.
Odysseo marries the equestrian arts, stage performances, and high-tech theatrical effects in never-before-seen ways. If you are planning to see one show this year, this is it! Some horses are ridden in a variety of disciplines and some are at liberty. Perhaps most extraordinary is the training and talent of the horses in the liberty work.
This breathtaking piece of entertainment portrays a dream of traveling the world with horses and humans. Both species embark on a journey that leads them from the Mongolian Steppes to Monument Valley, from the African savannah to Nordic glaciers, from the Sahara to Easter Island.
The live musicians and vocalist immerse spectators of all ages in a beautiful, multi-sensory performance you will be talking about for years to come. Odysseo is poetry in motion. It’s not just a show – it’s an experience. Gather your friends, your family and prepare to be wowed.
