CAVALIA TOURING CALENDAR
OPENS APRIL 19, 2017
Discover our Cavalia show
Cavalia, the first and eponymous production of the Canadian company, began its world tour in the summer of 2003. Conceived by Normand Latourelle, one of the co-founders of famed Cirque du Soleil, Cavalia is an innovative mix of equestrian and performing arts, multimedia and special effects, perfectly integrating acrobatics, dance, aerial stunts and live music.
The show – often labeled as an equestrian ballet – combines advanced technology and the fundamental relationship that humans have developed with horses throughout time, a precious bond that enabled us as humans to build bridges between cultures, to expand civilization and now to produce the purest form of art, one created through kindness, patience, and love.
Delightful, thrilling and poignant, Cavalia is a harmonious celebration of beauty and nature encompassing imagery that whisks the spectator’s imagination around the earth over land and sea. Cavalia is an epic equestrian adventure, transporting the audience into virtual environments.
The White Big Top
The White Big Top under which Cavalia presents its marvelous procession accommodates up to 2,000 spectators. The impression is that of a majestic white cathedral or a fabulous castle, its four towers extending 99 feet high. On a 160 feet wide playground, which allows for and protects their freedom of movement, the horses express themselves with grace and power, while interacting playfully with the artists.
The Cavalia Village includes six tents: the White Big Top, the Rendez-Vous VIP tent, the General Admission Entrance tent, one artistic & warm-up tent, the stables and the staff cafeteria.
FEET INTO THE SKY
The White Big Top is 110 feet high (30 metres) or the equivalent of a ten-story building.
A 210 foot-wide screen (70 metres) serves as a backdrop for the projections and special effects.
The stage is 160 feet wide (50 metres), the equivalent of the width of a regulation NFL football field.
CREW & STAFF
150 people are required to erect the tents and work on the preparation of the site. The set-up takes 12 days, while the tear down is completed in three days.
The White Big Top seats 2,000 spectators per show, with an adjoining General Admission tent and VIP Rendez-Vous Tent. The temperature inside our White Big Top is controlled to create the best environment for our guests. Whether you are under the White Big Top, The General Admission tent, the Rendez-Vous VIP tent or the stable tent, all areas are at a comfortable temperature all year around.
