Whether you love horses or simply enjoy an evening of spectacular entertainment, you won’t want to miss the splendour of Cavalia, which is making its Australian debut in 2013.
This stunning production was created by Normand Latourelle – a co-founder of the acclaimed Cirque du Soleil – and features more than 50 stunning horses performing alongside 42 riders, skilled acrobats, aerialists, musicians and dancers from all over the world, all under a signature white big top.
“We are thrilled to announce our first-ever Australian tour, and it is an honour to bring this show, an idea that started in Canada, on the other side of the world, to a country which has such great affinity with both the performing arts and the horse,” said Latourelle, announcing the first-ever tour Down Under.
Cavalia, which has already been experienced by some 3.5 million people in North America and Europe, and is set to arrive in Sydney on May 15 for an extended run until June 2 due to popular demand.
A dozen different horse breeds are featured in the show, including Appaloosa, Belgian, Quarter Horse and Spanish Purebred – and it can take between six months and ten years for a horse to learn its Cavalia part, especially the equestrian art of dressage.
If you are keen to catch Cavalia during its nearly three-week-long run in Sydney, the performances will be held on the Showring in the centre of Sydney’s Entertainment Quarter, which is located at 122 Lang Road, Moore Park.
This is a great place to grab a drink or a bite to eat before the show. There are plenty of restaurants onsite, including the Bavarian Bier Cafe, where you can enjoy a meal before you head into the white big top for an unforgettable night of entertainment.
