Cirque du Soleil co-founder brings horses, world’s largest big top to Winnipeg
The producers of Odysseo are thrilled to announce the addition of two more weeks to the show’s limited engagement in Winnipeg. Manitobans will now have until October 4 to be mesmerized by the world’s largest touring production and the first big top show to ever appear in Winnipeg, thanks to Cavalia and True North Sports & Entertainment Limited.
Odysseo is a two-hour waking dream that captivates audiences of all ages with a multitude of numbers performed by 65 majestic horses and 45 highly-skilled riders, acrobats, dancers and musicians. Imagined by Normand Latourelle, one of the co-founders of Cirque du Soleil, Odysseo brings the spectators on a magical journey during which they can experience a world where beauty, serenity, and hope reign, where humans and horses are living in harmony. Inventive, audacious and technically striking, Odysseo is a one-of-a-kind production where the spectacular meets the poetic, a pleasure for the eyes as well as for the soul.
Acclaimed by critics and audiences alike across North America, Odysseo will be presented under the White Big Top – the biggest traveling tent on earth – at the intersection of Sterling Lyon Parkway and Kenaston Boulevard in Winnipeg starting September 10.
