“Beyond Spectacular! An enthralling equestrian epic and about as gorgeous as it gets!”
The San Francisco Chronicle

“It’s not a horse show, it’s not a play, it’s not Cirque du Soleil, it’s not a 3D movie, and it’s not a concert. It’s all of these things, blended in a way that elevates the spirit.”
Atlanta Journal Constitution

“If Walt Disney were still alive, he might create a show as magical as Cavalia’s Odysseo!
The Miami Herald

NASHVILLE, TN – (June 26, 2017) #OdysseoTN – The internationally acclaimed entertainment company Cavalia is thrilled to announce the upcoming visit of its latest creation Odysseo to Nashville this summer. The world’s largest touring production, featuring 65 magnificent horses and 50 talented riders, acrobats, dancers and musicians, will make its Tennessee debut under the White Big Top in Nashville, located near Opryland by Briley Parkway at exit 12. The $30 million extravaganza that expands the definition of performance into an epic, yet soulful theatrical experience, will open August 30 with matinee and evening shows scheduled through September 10. Tickets for Odysseo in Nashville are now on sale and can be purchased online at or by calling 1-866-999-8111.

Odysseo is a show unlike any other on the planet, an immersive theatrical experience in which horses are the stars. These magnificent animals play in complicity and with freedom, in a respectful relationship with the riders, acrobats, and aerialists, charming and fascinating everyone who has the chance to witness this moving artistic and emotive partnership. A liberty number, in which purebred Arabian horses are directed only by the soft murmurs of their trainer, and a caravan act that comprises people and horses too numerous to count, are amongst the many breathtaking scenes that will leave every spectator captivated and touched by the splendour created in front of their eyes.

Deploying their extraordinary talents, the acrobats present an amazing mix of force and sensitivity, interacting with the spellbound audience, while the live musicians and vocalist perform in the most enthralling way to immerse spectators of all ages in a beautiful, multi-sensory experience they will remember forever. Whether it is the dexterity of the African acrobats, the enchanting sound of the Kora, or the majestic life-size merry-go-around, the cast and set of Odysseo are inspired and inspiring, delivering crowd-pleasing wonders and stunts.

Imagined by Normand Latourelle – one of the co-founders of Cirque du Soleil and renowned for combining different forms of artistic expression and reinventing the scenic space – Odysseo is a true revolution in live entertainment with an impressive list of superlatives: the world’s largest touring production, the biggest touring tent on Earth, the biggest stage, the most breathtaking visual effects, and the greatest number of horses at liberty.

The mindboggling theatrical effects are as spectacular as they are numerous: a state-of-the-art video screen three times the size of the world’s largest cinema screens, a three-story mountain for dazzling perspectives, and a real lake made of 40,000 gallons of recycled water which magically appears for a splashing finale. Layers of mesmerizing decor make the audience part of the action while the gigantic stage takes everyone’s breath away.

Odysseo’s technological and scenographical effects create places no one has ever seen before; places where one can feel the deep connection between horse and man. Beginning in a misty, enchanted forest where horses graze and frolic under a sky of rolling clouds and a setting sun, Odysseo takes the audience on a fantastical journey to some of nature’s greatest wonders, from the Mongolian steppes to Monument Valley, from the African savannah to Nordic glaciers, and from the Sahara to Easter Island.

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. Wowing critics and audiences alike across North America, Odysseo will conclude its third engagement in the Greater Toronto Area in Canada before moving its signature White Big Top for the first time to Nashville in August.
