Odysseo is the company’s second production that has been touring under the world’s largest big top since fall 2011. Odysseo is a veritable revolution in live performance.
Known as the world’s largest touring production, Odysseo marries the equestrian arts, stage arts and high-tech theatrical effects at never-before-seen levels. This larger-than-life show sends hearts racing, but it is also a feast for the eyes that succeeds in delivering the spectacular with soul. Audiences of all ages are rediscovering with emotions the century-old relationship between human and horse. As friends, partners and inseparable performers on stage, 70 horses and 45 artists lead the spectator on a great journey in a world of dreams where, together, they discover some of the planet’s most unforgettable landscapes.
Beyond the impressive technical display and equestrian and acrobatic numbers that are unlike anything ever seen on stage, Odysseo is first and foremost a work that feeds the soul. The poetry flowing from this grand adventure shines a light on a more humane world where human and horse may live in harmony.
This new production is a celebration of the beauty and harmony of the meeting of two worlds: those of horse and human. As friends, partners and inseparable performers, they will lead you on a journey to another world – a world of dreams.
The door to your dream opens as soon as you enter the Big Top – the largest one of its kind in the world. Before the show even begins, you will be drawn into the mystery of an enchanted three-dimensional forest, which gradually comes alive under a sky of moving clouds. This is your invitation to marvel at nature’s greatest wonders, without ever leaving your seat.
Shrouded in a blue mist rising from the earth, you will find yourself amid a herd of grazing horses, admiring the splendour of the setting sun. Lying on a bed of green, you can contemplate what the stars dream about, what horses dream about. Follow the northern lights as they dance across the heavens. Revel in the birth of spring.
Suddenly, the flat surface of the stage will start to swell and curve. From behind an expanse of rolling hills and a distant desert emerges a herd of horses, seeking an oasis where they can quench their thirst.
Through a symphony of colours and emotions, a series of wonders will unfold. In this intimate yet grandiose setting, humans and horses live in harmony. Surrounded by awe-inspiring images and accompanied by live music, horses and artists – acrobats, dancers, musicians and riders – will take you on a journey to a world where dreams and reality intertwine.
What do horses dream about? The same thing we do: Freedom.
