CAVALIA’S ODYSSEO

AT; SOLDIER FIELD SOUTH LOT UNTIL APRIL 30TH.

REVIEWED BY; FRANK MECCIA

Cavalia marries equestrian arts, Game of Thrones and high-tech theatrical effects, at levels that I have never seen before. For 120 minutes, you are thrown into the world of mountains and waterfalls of majestic Norway. With a cast of 65 majestic horses, 48 riders, outstanding acrobats, aerialist dancers and musicians you are enchanted and delighted every moment you are there. The special effects are so grand you forget you are in the parking lot of Soldier Field. This is one show for the entire family. Spring break is here so if you’re looking for something to do, this is it. If you love acrobatics, the men from New Guinea will amaze you with their talents and daredevil skills. But the star of this show are those gorgeous horses, their skill and precision is fascinating, there wasn’t one bad act or moment in this truly great show.

 

Extended to April 30th

The big top at Soldier Field South Lot.

Tickets:  $34.00 to VIP Class at $269.00 (Which includes dinner and drinks)
