When we were invited to take part in the VIP experience at the Cavalia Odysseo Vancouver show we jumped at the opportunity. We knew this was going to be a very unique and inspiring mother and daughter date night!
The show consists of 65 horses and 45 artists that lead the audience on a great journey where, together, they discover some of the planet’s most unforgettable landscapes. Odysseo combines equestrian arts, stage arts and high-tech theatrical effects in a way that no other show has ever done. The whole show kept us captivated in our seats and made us wonder with excitement about what was going to happen next. We all sat with our jaws on the floor in amazement and with constant whispers of “Wow”, “Oh my goodness!” and “That was so cool” throughout all the acts.
Here are the Top 5 things our girls (and us moms!) LOVED at the show:
The Tent and Stage
At 38 metres tall, the White Big Top is an amazing temporary structure. The girls were awestruck before we even got inside! You would never know, once you step inside, that you are in tent, as the feel inside is that of a regular theatre. Once seated, we couldn’t believe how elaborate the stage was. The 17,500 square foot stage was covered in over 10,000 tons of rock, earth and sand. The backdrop of the stage were huge screens, making for stunning scenery for every part of the show.
Part of the VIP experience includes a buffet before the show, desserts during intermission, drinks and snacks. The girls loved that they had their very own kids corner complete with a kid level buffet consisting of mini hot dogs, cheese pizza, mini burgers, fruit and GIANT cookies! The adult buffet was equally delicious and had a variety of salads, smoked salmon, prawns, lentil curry and steak.
