ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA (Tuesday, August 30, 2016) #OdysseoOC – Due to strong demand in SoCal, the internationally acclaimed entertainment company Cavalia has announced today it will return to Orange County two weeks earlier than originally planned with its latest production of Odysseo that is wowing North American audiences and critics alike. After stunning 90,000 spectators from Orange County, LA and San Diego this past spring due to its critical acclaim, Odysseo will be back to call Irvine home for this year’s holiday season.
Attracting audiences of all ages, Odysseo definitely makes a popular family outing and gift idea. With the addition of 13 new performances to the Irvine show calendar, the 30-million-dollar theatrical extravaganza will again be presented under the White Big Top at the junction of the I-405 and the SR-133 in Irvine starting Wednesday, November 16, 2016 (Official Media Opening Gala scheduled for Saturday, November 19 at 2pm). Matinee and evening performances for Odysseo are scheduled through January 8, 2017 and are now on sale online at www.cavalia.net or by calling 1-866-999-8111.
Odysseo is an immersive theatrical experience that marries the equestrian arts, stage arts, and high-tech theatrical effects at never-before-seen levels. A show unlike any other on the planet, Odysseo brings the audiences to a live Hollywood-style movie set, where the moving interactions between human and horse are at the heart of the action. On an enormous stage, layers of mesmerizing decor are combined with live music, gravity-defying acrobatics, mesmerizing aerial stunts and inspiring HD projections, all of which make Odysseo the first 6D show in the world. With a state-of-the-art video screen three times the size of the world’s largest cinema screens, as well as a three-story mountain for dazzling perspectives and a real lake – the last of which magically appears for a splashing finale – Odysseo truly pushes the limits of live entertainment.
While the audacity, inventiveness and striking technical display of Odysseo may boggle the mind, this magnificent equestrian odyssey also aims to feed the soul. For a few hours, the spectators set off to discover new horizons on a soulful journey to some of nature’s greatest wonders, and get to experience a waking dream in a world where beauty, serenity and hope reign.
Thanks to the staggering effects created by cutting edge scenery, to the 65 magnificent horses and 48 talented riders, acrobats, dancers, and musicians, Odysseo transports the spectators to a whole new level of beauty, grace, and magic. A larger-than-life show and a true revolution in live entertainment, Odysseo can be described with an impressive list of superlatives: the world’s largest touring production; the largest touring tent on Earth (the surface covered by the White Big Top is 106,700 square feet, equal to an NFL football field); the biggest stage (17,500 square feet); the most breathtaking visual effects; and the greatest number of horses at liberty.
This remarkable celebration of horse and man, imagined by Normand Latourelle, one of the co-founders of Cirque du Soleil, marries the spectacular with the poetic. Since its Montreal world premiere in 2011, the Odysseo cast has already mesmerized more than 2 million spectators in Canada, the United States, and Mexico.
