In Cavalia, 47 magnificent horses are the stars, performing with 38 riders, aerialists, acrobats, dancers and musicians from all over the world to create a show unlike any other. Cavalia celebrates the relationship between humans and horses, virtually reinventing the equestrian arts, in a spectacular presentation in which horses cavort, at times completely free, in front of a constantly changing digital background projected onto a 200-ft.wide screen, drawing spectators into dream-like virtual environments. Presented under a gigantic 10 story high Big White Top, Cavalia's audience faces a single 160-foot-wide stage through which the horses can gallop at full speed.
Delightful, thrilling, and poignant, Cavalia explores humankind's longstanding relationship with the horse. Critical acclaim has included The New York Times, which described Cavalia as "Celebrating horses, humans and their bond." O Magazine called the show "breathtaking!" Jay Leno of The Tonight Show raved, "The greatest show I have ever seen!" The Washington Post exclaims, "Impressive, highly refined, indeed a wonder," and the San Francisco Chronicle affirms "Cavalia takes horse play to a new level, even for non-horsey folk."
