Now playing in Burbank, California, before moving on to Canada, Cavalia is much more than a show for horse lovers. It brings together a rich multimedia production with lavish orchestration of equestrian and performing arts designed to entertain people of all ages and backgrounds.
Cavalia was created by Cirque du Soleil co-founder, Normand Latourelle. "My passion in life is to make people dream. When I first introduced Cirque at Battery Park in 1988, I always wished I could return and introduce something new to the New York area. Cavalia took nearly 10 years to conceive and I am thrilled to present this one-of-a-kind show."
Cavalia is the story of the evolution of horses from life in the wilderness, to early domestication, and ultimately to a relationship with human beings based on freedom and mutual respect.
Cavalia is a grand-scale spectacle involving acrobatics, live music, projected images and more than 100 performers, including a troupe of 60 magnificent horses from all over the world.
Under the world's largest touring Big Top, which rises 100 feet above the ground and spans more than 26,264 feet, the horses gallop and cavort and, at times, run free completely unbridled, the show incorporates acrobatics, original live music and stunning special and lighting effects to create a dreamlike setting.
Across North America and Europe, Cavalia has enthralled audiences and been praised by critics for its captivating and unique experience.
- Amsterdam's De Telegraf proclaimed Cavalia "A fairytale for the entire family!"
- The Los Angeles Times declared, 'The impression is one of intense bond between humans and horses."
- Larry King raved, "The greatest show I have ever seen! Spectacular, Beautiful, like being in a dream. I loved it!"
Playing in many of the major cities in the U. S., Canada, and throughout Europe, Cavalia is a show that should be on the priority list of everyone who loves magnificent horses, acrobatics, music, and the glitter of a grand-scale spectacle.
