Standing 125 feet tall, the White Big Top is a traffic-stopping addition to the skyline of each city Odysseo visits. When visitors enter, they are immediately transported into a lavish yet comfortable environment worthy of any permanent theatre. Odysseo’s White Big Top is twice as big as the structure created for Cavalia’s eponymous production. The newest incarnation was designed in collaboration with the consultants at the Italian firm Canobbio, who also oversaw the construction. Asteo in France and Genivar in Canada supervised engineering operations. The arches that support the massive structure were built by Show Canada.
The 3 arches are 83 feet high by 203 feet wide. A total of 173 different types of motors run all of the suspended equipment including a mechanical carousel.
As the largest touring tent in the world, the White Big Top is equal to an NFL football field. The Odysseo Village is comprised of 5 tents, including stables for our 65 horses.
10K tons of stone, dirt and sand are required to build the massive stage. An underground drain system creates an impressive 40k gallon lake.
20 semi-trucks are required to transport the White Big Top. The installation requires 26 motors and a 276 ton mechanical crane.
