Cavalia Odysseo tour arrives in San Jose (Video)

It’s the “largest touring production on earth.” And it opens in just a few weeks in San Jose.

Look for the White Big Top (Highway 87 and Julian Street), there you’ll find the stunning (see the Stark Insider review of Cavalia Odysseo) production known by Cavalia. The size of an NFL football field the tents house some 65 horses, 48 riders, acrobats, aerialists and musicians.

Cavalia’s latest production, Odysseo, opens September 14, 2016 in San Jose.

The show had a successful run in San Francisco. There Loni Stark ventured backstage to learn about the inner workings of the show, and, in particular, how the horses and riders bond.

At twice the size of Cavalia’s previous production, Odysseo is quite the spectacle. Needless to say, it’s one of our favorite productions here on Stark Insider.
