PREVIEW OF ODYSSEO by CAVALIA (April 7, 2015)
by Bill Kwan
The preview for ODYSSEO by the internationally acclaimed Cavalia theatrical production was shown to a select few media and VIP Under The Big White Top at The Port Lands on Tuesday, April 7th, 2015.
Artistic director and Creator Normand Latourelle greeted the audience with a little bit of background behind the latest edition of Cavalia.
The newest production stopped by Toronto and will be touring the world after stops in Canada. The combination of equestrian, acrobats, amazing stunts and theatrics combined for a condensed one hour preview showcase.
Performed under the 125-foot “White Big Top” — the show which usually last twice as long drew many exciting moments of “oh and awes” during the performance.
With a total of over 60 horses performing, a real gigantic carousel and an amazing 80,000-gallon lake in front of a video backdrop which is three times the size of an IMAX screen.
Overall a great preview that was showcased to the media and VIP. This show is highly recommended and we can’t wait to see the full two hour production of Cavalia-ODYSSEO.
A big thank you goes out to Carrie Sagar and Ashley Belmer of Flip Publicity for the invitation and hospitality.
