DUE TO OVERWHELMING RESPONSE, CAVALIA ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL “ODYSSEO” PERFORMANCES IN MIAMI
Critically-acclaimed production receives extraordinary reviews
Miami, March 2, 2012 – Due to an overwhelming reception by the South Florida community and strong ticket sales, Cavalia’s new production, “Odysseo,” announced that a third additional week will be added to the limited engagement of the production at Bicentennial Park, which will extend its stay in Miami until March 18, 2012.
After an extended standing ovation on opening night, Miami Herald’s Howard Cohen commented about the show "If Walt Disney were still alive, he might create a show as magical as Cavalia's new ‘Odysseo.’ But it wouldn't be better than the wonderful world mastermind Normand Latourelle has created under his White Big Top." Nathalie Rodriguez of WMIA-FM, 98.3, describes the show as “One word split in two: awe-some! It's artistic & majestical, but most importantly not to be missed!" Soul of Miami raved “The show is truly amazing. Between the astounding horsemanship and acrobatics combined with the awesome scenery and visual effects, this show will leave you wanting to see more. This is one show you will not want to miss.”
“We are delighted to finally be back in Miami,” expressed Normand Latourelle, founder and artistic director of Cavalia. “Our first show was received wonderfully by the South Florida community two years ago, but the reception of our new production, ‘Odysseo,’ has been overwhelmingly wonderful. In an effort to please the public, we will extend the run to please the high demand.”
For its exclusive run in Miami, Odysseo will be presented under the White Big Top at Bicentennial Park in downtown Miami. Tickets are on sale now at the introductory price of $59.50 to $109.50 + applicable fees for regular tickets. For guests who desire an extraordinary outing, the show can be customized for an extended experience from $144.50 to $199.50, including a Horse Lovers Package that lets patrons tour the Cavalia stables after the show, and the VIP Rendez-Vous Package which includes a tour of the stables after the show, a cocktail/dinner reception and much more.
