Grand-scale multi-media show features 49 horses and 39 artists

Cavalia: A Magical Encounter Between Human and Horse, an innovative multi-media and multi-disciplinary production created by Normand Latourelle, one of the co-founders of famed Cirque du Soleil, returns to San Diego. The show premieres November 13, 2012, under its signature White Big Top, at Petco Park. Tickets to Cavalia are now on sale by calling 1-866-999-8111 or online at

Enjoyed by some 3.5 million people, Cavalia is a lavish production involving 49 magnificent horses and featuring 39 riders, aerialists, acrobats, dancers and musicians from all over the world. A show unlike any other, Cavalia celebrates the relationship between humans and horses, virtually reinventing the equestrian arts.

Delightful, thrilling and poignant, Cavalia explores humankind’s longstanding relationship with the horse. Juxtaposed with the vibrancy of the production is a subtle thematic line that takes audiences through the evolution of horses and human’s interaction with them. Cavalia’s horse training is based upon a philosophy of understanding horses, rather than making horses understand the humans around them. The tone of the show, embraced by the entire company, is one of mutual respect, kindness, patience, and trust. Audiences have found Cavalia exhilarating in scope, yet touching in the compassion shown by both horse and human.

Cavalia has received critical acclaim from around the world, including The New York Times, which noted that the theme of Cavalia is “Celebrating horses, humans and their bond,” while O Magazine called the show “Breathtaking!” and Jay Leno of “The Tonight Show” raved, “The greatest show I have ever seen!”

Cavalia explores humankind’s longstanding relationship with the horse.

The production takes place under the White Big Top, at Petco Park in downtown San Diego. Tickets are vailable at or by calling 1-866-999-8111.
