If you have passed the I-5 recently through Burbank, no doubt you have seen the big white tent that has been up for a few weeks. Cavalia was launched in 2003 by Normand Latourelle who is co-founder of Cirque du Soleil, a show that has been running for 35 years.
The show features 49 horses 37 acrobatic performers. It is said to be partly similar to a Cirque du Soleil show and partly similar to Medieval Times show.
The show has 20 horse trainers, none of which use whips, instead they use voice commands. Many have described the show as “Horseplay at its best”, “magical”, “wondrous”, “…like being in a dream”.
Cavalia has been traveling the world since 2003. It is back in Los Angeles for the first time since 2004. It opened on January 19th in Burbank and will run through February 15th.
