The world’s biggest touring big top – the size of a professional football field.
Dozens of horses, riders and acrobats performing amazing feats and demonstrating Cavalia’s signature bond between horses and humans.
The video backdrop the size of 3 IMAX screens makes it feel like the audience is on a voyage around the world where they see the African plains, the desert, an ice cave, the American Southwest, mystical forests, a waterfall and tropical islands.    In minutes the stage floods with 80,000 gallons of water for a finale where horses and acrobats play. This is the first touring show to attempt such a technical feat.    Interviews with riders and acrobats – English and Spanish speaking.
