Cavalia’s Odysseo Extended Through March 31 In Downtown Burbank:

Sixty-seven four-legged stars are performing as part of Cavalia’s “Odysseo” in Burbank, which has been extended through March 31.

Shows started Feb. 27 for the all-new production created by one of the founders of Cirque du Soleil.

Cavalia’s Odysseo is a theatrical ode to horse and man that combines the equestrian and acrobatic arts with high-tech special effects set under a magical 10-story White Big Top.

Under the tent, a dream-like world transports audiences around the world as the horses and an international cast of 44 artists play and demonstrate their intimate bond.

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.

The horses hail from around the world and represent 11 breeds including Spanish Purebred, Arabians and Lusitanos.

While performing in Los Angeles the horses are living in a climate-controlled tent stable complete with showers, tack room, a staff of groomers, a veterinary technician and a blacksmith.

The company fosters an environment where patience, trust and deep-seated respect for the four-legged stars comes first.

Cavalia’s training methods are designed to ensure the horses enjoy training and performing on stage. Trainers pay close attention to the horses in order to ensure that every request is adapted and respectful of what the horses are ready to offer.

They receive around-the-clock care from a team of grooms, riders, a blacksmith and a veterinary technician.

The horses are bathed at least once a day and the stables are cleaned throughout the day. Their diet consists of hay, grain, carrots, apples and vitamin supplements. 

The stable measures 1,300 square feet and contains roomy stalls for each horse, showers, a saddlery and a blacksmith’s area.

The entire floor is covered by thick rubber mats that are made from recycled tires. Adjacent to the stable tent there is an inside arena for the horses and the trainers to warm-up and train. These fully air conditioned and heated tents are connected together by tunnels to the stage area.

Ticket prices range from $34.50-$159.50.

Additionally the Rendez-Vous VIP package offers the best seats in the house, dinner prior to the show, an open bar, dessert at intermission, and a photo opportunity with the artists and a tour of the Cavalia’s Odysseo stables.

The VIP experience is held in exclusive, luxury tent adjacent to the White Big Top where the performance is held. Packages range from $154.50-$269.50.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.cavalia.net or by calling 1-866-999-8111.

The Cavalia’s Odysseo White Big Top is located in downtown Burbank at 777 N. Front Street in Burbank, CA 9150.
