Have you heard of Cavalia? It’s an amazing show the likes of which you normally only see in Las Vegas. They are in Utah right now, until June 6th, with their show Odysseo. Why am I writing about this on an animal blog? Because this is a horse show (and so much more)!!
We were lucky enough to be invited to social media night, where we were treated like royalty! Our VIP tickets gave us an amazing view of the stage, a buffet dinner before the show, dessert during intermission, and the best part of all, meeting some of the performers and touring the stables for selfies with the horses! Here is just a taste of what you will see if you go:
The show features horses, trainers, riders, and acrobatics. As many as 32 horses at one time were on the stage. And the stage is a treat in and of itself. There are many surprises during the show that involve the stage!
Another fun part is the music and the live musicians that play in sections high above the stage and audience. Be sure to look up to the left and right to see them! All of the songs are original pieces by Michel Cusson. The live music really adds to the show too. Speaking of which, one of my favorite parts was the African music and performers.
Cavalia Odysseo fun facts:
- 68 saddles used during the show
- 2,000 seats in the tent
