I had the unique and amazing opportunity to experience Odysseo by Cavalia's
as a VIP Rendezvous guest. It made for the perfect date night for JJ and I.
Before the show we enjoyed the buffet and drinks in the VIP lounge.
The food was delicious and the Diet Coke was plentiful - just how I like it!
Before the show started, we grabbed our complimentary popcorn and headed
into the arena. Our seats were front and center and we had the perfect view.
The show is visually stunning. It features 65 horses of 11 different breeds. There are
45 artists in the show as riders, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, and musicians.
The entire show takes place inside a 17,500 square foot stage complete with a
three-story tall hill. This amazing space required 10,000 tons of rock, earth and sand
to be trucked in and sculpted into a vast space where humans and horses could
During the 30 minute intermission, we headed back to the VIP lounge for dessert and drinks.
There was cheesecake, berries, cookies, lemon bars, petit fours and more.
And of course, more Diet Coke. I also love that the VIP Lounge had it's own restrooms,
because that can get quite busy during intermission, especially for the women.
The second half of the show was just as amazing as the first half. I just can't believe
what the artists and the horses are able to do together. You can tell that they trust
one another, because some of the stunts seem impossible!
The costumes are gorgeous too! There are 350 costumes and 100 pairs of a show in the show.
An artist could have up to seven different costumes during the show and may no more
than 30 seconds for costume changes between the numbers.
It's all just so amazing! I love that the music was live and that the musicians were perched
up in the "trees" on the sides of the stage. It all just comes together to create a one
of a kind experience that you won't soon forget.
After the show we got to go behind the scenes and see the horses in the stables,
meet several of the artists, and see the stage from the performers point of view.
I snapped a quick picture of one of my favorite horses. They were all so gorgeous!
