‘Cavalia” extends thru August 23rd

Last Chance to see Cavalia in Chicago

The summer equestrian smash, Cavalia, will now conclude its Chicago engagement on August 23. 

 

Cavalia-stunt With more than 45,000 tickets sold to date, the next few week are the last chance Chicagoans will have to spend an evening or afternoon with the two-and four-legged stars of Cavalia.  The equestrian odyssey has extended its run in Chicago ’s West Loop for the final time through Sunday, August 23.  The production, which made its Chicago debut Tuesday, July 14, is presented under its towering White Big Top, which is pitched at Racine and Jackson in Chicago’s West Loop. After Chicago, Cavalia and its village will be returning to the Washington DC area where the show will open in September.

About Cavalia

This multimedia extravaganza brings together more than 100 two-and four-legged artists in a visually exquisite, inspiring and poetic multi-disciplinary spectacular that pushes the boundaries of what is possible between humans and horses.  The mix of horses, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, riders and musicians transports spectators to dream-like settings while celebrating the timeless bond between horses and humans.

Cavalia-stunt2 Normand Latourelle, founder and artistic director of Cavalia, is the visionary behind the show.  Through Latourelle’s passionate vision, Cavalia revolutionizes equestrian and performing arts. Latourelle has become renowned for adventurous, mammoth and innovative productions that transport spectators to new realms of imagination.

Cavalia is a show unlike any other, a lavish orchestration blending multimedia theatrical spectacle with equestrian and performing arts. Acrobats, aerialists, dancers, musicians and riders are showcased on an enormous, 160-foot-wide stage; a space so expansive that it allows the horses sufficient space to gallop and cavort, at times completely unbridled. Recognized for their expertise in the realm of multimedia, Cavalia’s creators have used cutting-edge technology to create dream-like fantasy world. Large, panoramic images are projected on to a 210-foot-wide curved screen, while stunning special and lighting effects illuminate the action on the stage and in the air. Original live music and vocals accompany this feast for the senses.

Cavalia-white Cavalia is presented under North America ’s largest touring tent, a pristine white structure rising some 100 feet above the ground and spanning more than 26,264 square feet. The stage alone is the equivalent to the width of a regulation NFL football field.

Juxtaposed with the vibrancy of the lavish production is a subtle thematic line that tells the story of the evolution of horses and their bond with human beings, beginning with their unbridled life in the wilderness, to early domestication and ultimately to a rapport with people based on mutual respect.

Cavalia-2horses Featured in Cavalia are 13 different breeds of horses, including Arabians, Spanish Pure Breeds, Lusitanos, Quarter Horses, Appaloosas and Paint horses from France, Canada, Spain and the United States.
