Odysseo is set for its debut performance on June 21 in Mississauga, but we were lucky enough to be invited to the advance red carpet arrival and unique stable visit! The gala even had a special appearance by Odysseo fan and Toronto personality, Michael “Pinball” Clemons. The Vice-Chair of the Toronto Argonauts and co-founder of the Pinball Clemons Foundation, Clemons was in attendance for a special announcement, photo op and interviews.
Odysseo’s sixty-five majestic horses settled into their new home in Mississauga – a spacious stable tent next to the show’s signature White Big Top, adjacent to the Hershey Centre. Following a relaxing 10-day vacation at a local farm in Burlington, ON, the horses met the press during a red carpet arrival event where the trainers demonstrated the art of liberty training in the practice tent. After the press tour, guests were then hosted to a unique stable visit with a glimpse of the Odysseo daily routine and the first-class care provided to the horses.
Alongside their four-legged co-stars, riders were available to discuss the disciplines showcased in Odysseo, combining the equestrian arts, stage arts and high-tech theatrical effects at never-before-seen levels.
We would like to thank Danielle LeSage from Flip-Publicity for the invitation for this event.
