The Orange County Register
“A magical experience! Real Hollywood magic on stage!”
“Phenomenal Horsepower. Remarkable theatrical extravaganza”
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.
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.
The Night At Cavalia Odysseo
By Kyle Chiu
On February 25, 2016 two Lajaja Kids Junior Journalist: Kyle Chiu and Bianca Chiu went to see the Cavalia Odysseo. The show was the company’s 2nd production and have been having tours since fall 2011. We had the opportunity to interview the workers backstage inside the world largest white tent in Orange County where horses and people were performing the show.
When we arrived, we went inside the VIP lounge where there was food and drink provided for free before and in the middle of the show. We watched the Cavalia Odysseo where there were many, many, horses and people were performing in different scenes, such as Easter Island, Great Plains, Forest, Merry-go-round, etc. The performers dressed up as Greece, modern people, and explorers in order to match with the scenes and stories. It was amazing. All the performers and horses were acting so natural and every single scene is very attractive. It took a lot of training with their performing equestrian where there were 70 horses and 45 artist to make a land of dreaming imagination. These horses and riders act as they are together as friends and family that makes people enjoy the show. In one part the rider fell off the horse and in another part a hoop fell down and then carried a person and did tricks while on the hoop. The background continue to change while the riders and horses performed, which make the show more fun to look at.
After the show we Lajaja Kids went backstage and saw the horses at their stables and some of the horses that were in the show were seen in their stables too. At the end we Lajaja Kids got a chance to touch a horse and ask its rider questions about the horses, show, and riders about how they trained in their stadium and see the horses inside their stables. All the horses were being picked by the experts in the community. Each horse had to be trained and tested in order to find the right owner. Sometimes it takes couple years to have the horse ready to perform. We were also get the chance to stand on the stage in order to feel how it is as a performer. It is quite amazing for the horses and the riders be able to have so many different actions on the stage.
The Magic Awakens at Cavalia Odysseo
by Bianca Chiu
Dinner, Drinks, Dessert, and a magical show put together by acrobats and horses, who could ask for more? It’s all right there at Cavalia Odysseo, where two Lajaja Kids Junior Journalists visited on February 25, 2016.
When they arrived, the excited journalists got their VIP passes, free programs, and a poster as they headed on to the buffet, which was filled with tasty food to get you stuffed for the show. Things like beef, chicken, and crackers with hummus welcomed everyone as they toured around the world’s largest white tent, which was also their lounge.
When time came for the show to start, the VIPs all rushed to grab their free popcorn, and the journalists skipped into the dim stadium, where the got seated in the row CC (third row) of section two in the seating area.
As the show started, everyone stuffed popcorn into their face and watched carefully at the first scene, which was basically horses doing tricks with actors as a lady sang a song in a language I do not know. The scenes went by in a flash, with all the horsemen jumping and climbing around their horse. Unfortunately, one actor fell off his horse and almost got trampled over. Luckily, and to everyone’s surprise, the horse stopped at the sight of its fallen owner, so no damage was done to either of them.
When the first half of the show was over, the journalists headed back towards the lounge and ate dessert. There was tiramisu cake, chocolate fudge, and little cubes of red-velvet cake coated with chocolate. Eating and chatting, almost everyone in the lounge was talking about what they saw guessing what sort of magic was to be uncovered next.
All that was revealed when the break ended and the show began again. Grabbing more popcorn, the people stampeded towards their original seats in the stadium and chittered excitedly, impatient as ever for a show to start.
The second half of the show was even better than the first! In one of the scenes, acrobats flew around in the air with nothing to support them but thin, silver hoops. There wasn’t even a wire! They would just hang by their hand, leg, and even neck! In another scene, the audience learned the saying “O walu guere moufan!”, which basically means No More War on Earth.
In one of the last parts of the show, a horse skidded across the water, splashing the audience as it danced to a music. (IT DANCED!) Afterwards, all the performers came on stage and bowed, showing us the final performance of the day.
As the show ended for real, crowds forced their way out of the tent as bloggers headed to the stables, which held over 65 horses.
In the stables, the journalists met and questioned some of the actors on the horses and took a few shots with them.
To conclude it all, it was the most magical interview ever!
