Ahead of the much anticipated August 30th Premiere in Nashville
(NASHVILLE, TN – Thursday, August 17, 2017) #OdysseoTN – As the logistic and technical teams are working on completing the Odysseo Village near Opryland in Nashville for the much-anticipated August 30 opening of the largest touring show on earth, Odysseo’s 65 magnificent horses are enjoying a relaxing 10-day stay at a nearby farm.
After sold-out performances in Toronto, Canada, the four-legged stars were transported to a lavish farm in Franklin, TN, in specially equipped trailers alongside Odysseo’s equine specialists. The Odysseo herd comprising horses of 12 different breeds – including Appaloosa, Arabian, Canadian Horse, Holsteiner, Lusitano, Paint Horse, Percheron Hanoverian Cross, Quarter Horse, Selle Français, Thoroughbred, Spanish Purebred (P.R.E.) and Warlander – is under the care of Cavalia’s 20-person stable team.
At their retreat, the horses are surrounded by spacious paddocks, where they can bathe in the sun and roll in the grass. This interlude between shows is part of Cavalia’s horse care and training philosophy, which is based on understanding the needs, preferences, and emotions of the animals, and on mutual respect, kindness, patience, and trust.
The world’s largest touring show, Odysseo is a show unlike any other on the planet, an immersive theatrical experience in which horses are front and center. Imagined by Normand Latourelle – creator of Cavalia and renowned for combining different forms of artistic expression and reinventing the scenic space – Odysseo is a veritable revolution in live performance that makes hearts race. Audiences of all ages will be transported on an epic journey to some of nature’s greatest wonders by this breathtaking production that features the 65 horses plus 50 talented riders, trainers, acrobats, aerialists, stilt walkers dancers and musicians.
