“Odysseo marries the equestrian arts, stage arts and high-tech theatrical effects at never-beforeseen levels. A veritable revolution in live performance, Odysseo comprises a list of superlatives: the world’s largest touring production and traveling big top, the biggest stage, the most beautiful visual effects, and the largest number of horses at liberty. Odysseo features 65 horses of 11 different breeds of horses, riders, acrobats and musicians as together they embark on a soulful journey from the Mongolian steppes to Monument Valley, from the African savannah to Nordic glaciers, from the Sahara to Easter Island.”cavalia-odysseo-irvine-fall-2016

* Odysseo features 65 horses of 11 different breeds including the Appaloosa, Arabian, Australian Stockhorse, Holsteiner, Lusitano, Paint Horse, Percheron Hanoverian Cross, Quarter Horse, Thoroughbred, Selle Français and Spanish Purebred (P.R.E.).

*The horses are from Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, Australia, the United States and Canada.

* There are 48 artists – riders, acrobats, aerialists, dancers and musicians.

*The artists are from around the world including the United States, Canada, Brazil, France, Guinea (Africa), Russia, Spain, Ukraine, Italy and Australia.

* There are 350 costumes and 100 pairs of shoes and boots in the show. Artists may have up to seven different costumes.

*A team of 13 dressmakers, one property master, one designer and one shoemaker worked in the Odysseo studios to create the costumes.

*Materials used in the costumes include linen, silk, cotton, leather and some imitation fur. The use of natural fibers gives the clothes sheen and lets them fall in a way that synthetic fibers simply cannot match.

* The costumes are adapted to the artists’ needs, especially those of the acrobats and riders, to facilitate their onstage movement while not compromising their appearance.

*The seating capacity is for 2,000 people. Air conditioning and heat are available.

*The stage is approximately 17,500 square feet, an area larger than the Anaheim Duck hockey rink.
