Yesterday, I was cordially invited to attend the opening night of Cavalia Odysseo. We were able to mix and mingle before the show started at the VIP Party which featured the international cast, Mayor Ba Megan Barry, local news reporters and the creator Normand Latourelle.
If you have no idea what I’m speaking of then if you drive by Briley Pkwy towards Opry Mills mall or Opryland then you can’t help but notice the big white tent as you pass down the interstate..
Well that’s Cavalia! 🙂
Cavalia is known as an entertainment company that specializes in the creation, production and touring of shows for audiences of all ages worldwide showcasing equestrian and acrobatic techniques.
This internationally acclaimed, 7 million dollar live entertainment production tour has the largest tent in the world. Odysseo is a theatrical experience, an ode to horse and man, that marries equestrian arts, awe-insipring acorbatics and high tech theater effects.
As I watched the show, I felt like I was in a scene of a real life horse movie. The stage featureds 125 foot tall White Big Top that seats 2,000 people in the audience, 60 horses, a beautiful international cast ( African dancers were my favorite 🙂 , a real carousel and a magical 40,000-gallon lake in front of a stunning video backdrop the size of three large movie screens.
This two hour dream touches your heart and soul. It definitely a once in a lifetime experience well worth the price tag that you will want to share with family, a perfect date night, or night of the arts. You definitely will never forget this!
My favorite parts of the show would be seeing all the beautiful horses especially the Stallions, the African dancers who mastered crowd participation with gymnastics and a special chant of O Walu Guere Moufan, which we learned means, “No More War!” (Definitely fitting for the times we are living in.)
Of course the icing on my cake, was the water performance which I don’t want to giveaway so you have to go see it for yourself!
Personally, I made it a family night and we ALL loved each and every moment from beginning to end!
