Under the White Big Top at the

Plateau in National Harbor

(about 25 minutes outside of Washington, D.C.)

The internationally acclaimed Cavalia pushes the limits of live entertainment once again with its second production: a 30-million dollar extravaganza that is wowing critics and audiences alike across North America. Cavalia’s Odysseo will make its premiere under the White Big Top at National Harbor in Maryland on Wednesday, October 9, 2013.

With its latest creation, Cavalia marries the equestrian arts, stage arts and high-tech theatrical effects at never-before-seen levels. A veritable revolution in live performance, Cavalia’s Odysseo features 63 magnificent horses and 47 artists in a larger-than-life theatrical production that sends hearts racing. This breathtaking ode to horse and man, imagined by one of the co-founders of Cirque du Soleil, is an absolute feast for the eyes that succeeds in delivering the spectacular with soul.

 Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, Cavalia Inc. is an entertainment company that specializes in the creation, production and touring of innovative shows for audiences of all ages. Founded by Normand Latourelle, the company has an expertise in equestrian and performing arts, and is known for making the most of cutting-edge technology, multimedia and special effects, which allows for the creation of magical, unique, never-before-seen theatrical experiences. Cavalia, seen by some 4 million people across North America and Europe since its 2003 debut, celebrates the relationship between humans and horses by loosely recounting the evolution of this bond. Odysseo, which premiered in 2011, takes the next step, leading viewers on a great journey where horses and humans, together, discover some of the planet’s most unforgettable landscapes.

Spectators of all ages can experience the magic every week, Tuesday through Sunday, until October 27, 2013.  Tickets for Cavalia’s Odysseo are on sale online here or call 1-866-999-8111.
