Opening September 22 in Denver, this multimedia extravaganza is a show unlike any other. Cavalia celebrates the bond between humans and horses, virtually reinventing the equestrian arts. Created by Normand Latourelle, one of the founders of Canada’s famed Cirque du Soleil, the show will be held under a big top tent at the Pepsi Center. Enjoyed by more than 2.5 million people in the U.S., Europe and Canada, Cavalia involves more than 100 performers, including 50 magnificent horses from all over the world, riders, aerialists, acrobats and dancers as well as musicians and a vocalist. During the show, horses cavort with the many artists in front of a constantly changing background digitally projected onto a 200-ft. wide screen, drawing spectators into dream-like virtual environments. Unlike traditional horse shows in the round, the audience faces a single, 160-ft. wide stage, which allows the horses space to gallop at full speed, at times running completely free unfettered by bridles or halters. Cavalia takes place under North America’s largest touring tent – a white, 26,264-sq. ft. big top rising some 100 feet high that gives the horses an ample playground to have fun with their trainers and the artists. Cavalia’s horses are trained based on a philosophy of understanding the horse rather than making him understand the human beings around him. The tone of the show, embraced by the entire company, is one of respect, kindness, patience and trust.
