Cavalia Odysseo is HUGE!
Whether you like horses or not – this show is so much more than horses. It’s beautifully choreographed art and showmanship. BIGGER THAN LIFE!
Imagine, 21 semi trucks delivered the show to Chicago over 6 weeks ago. a $30 million extravaganza! The main tent stands over 125 feet tall and occupies some 58,000 square feet. From your seat, at least to me, the stage looked 2-3 times the size of the space that the audience occupies.
This unprecedented ‘traveling theatre’ is also composed of several exceptional features including its grandiose stage – larger than the United Center ice rink – that enables large-scale, cutting-edge creative performances. Surrounded by bleachers with 2,074 seats, the 17,500-square-foot stage requires 10,000 tons of stone, earth and sand to create so that it offers a vast space of freedom where 65 horses and 48 artists can display their intimate collaboration.
To help immerse the audience in the magical world of Odysseo, images of the most beautiful landscapes from around the world are projected throughout the show onto an 8,400-square-foot screen. Its technical grid, worthy of the largest permanent installations in Las Vegas, New York or London, can support 80 tons of equipment for the stage needs of the show, including a majestic life-sized merry-go-round.
Perhaps most amazing is when 40,000 gallons of water fills the stage! Mind blowing what this show delivers! Music, Singing, Dance, Acrobatic skills and 65 of the most regal horses you ever see!
