REDMOND, WA (February 20, 2014) – Last night, a packed audience of 2000 celebrated the Washington premiere of Cavalia’s new larger-than-life production Odysseo. Under the gleaming White Big Top, the world’s largest touring tent erected at King County’s Marymoor Park in Redmond, spectators of all ages were thrilled and amazed by the unique blend of equestrian arts, performing arts and high-tech theatrical effects. Sharing the colossal stage with 52 riders, acrobats, aerialists and musicians, the 66 magnificent horses stole the spotlight during this unique theatrical performance, one which ended with rapturous applause and standing ovation.

About 400 VIPs patrons were treated to a buffet dinner and sumptuous desserts prepared by Odysseo head chef Yves Babineau in the Rendez-Vous VIP lounge, sipping on beer, wine and champagne. After the show, they were invited to a stable tour to meet the four-legged stars, followed by a reception at the impressive Odysseo village, capping off the magical Seattle premiere.
