Spotlight on Cavalia Odysseo -The Horses - The Music - The Artists
Story & Photos by Glenda S. Paradee

Cavalia's Odysseo came into Scottsdale, Arizona December 19, 2013 and runs through January 29, 2013.

The show was spectacular with multimedia equestrian and acrobatics and fantastic music.  The show is magical, it is one of the greatest shows I have ever seen.

I love horses even more than I did before, and I loved them a lot.  The show actually brought tears in my eyes it was so touching.  It was just breathtaking!  I loved every second of it.

Created by one of the founders of Cirque du Soleil, Odysseo is a theatrical experience, an ode to horse and man that marries the equestrian arts, awe inspiring acrobatics and high-tech theatrical effects.  It is held under a 10-story White Big Top and 8 additional tents that comprise the Odysseo village.  The show includes 60 horses of 9 different breeds including the Appaloosa, Arabian, Canadian, Lusitano, Oldenburg, Paint Horse, Quarter Horse, Spanish Purebred and Warmblood and an international cast of 50 artists from around the world including the United States, Canada, Brazil, France, Guinea (Africa), Russia, Spain and Ukraine play and demonstrate their intimate bond with horses.  There are 350 costumes and 100 pairs of shoes and boots in the show.  The 15,000 square foot stage features a real carousel and a magically appearing 80,000 gallon lake in front of a stunning video backdrop the size of three IMAX screens.  Odysseo is a two-hour dream that moves the heart and touches the soul.

From the beginning of the show, the horses capture the heart.  Ten horses freely play on stage by having a pleasurable roll on the ground or mischievously tease one another with playful nips to the back.  The show builds through a variety of equestrian numbers including jumping, dressage, carousel, trick, stunt, Roman and Cossack riding.
