We went to see Cavalia yesterday. It was amazing -- a beautiful and Impressive performance of both horses and acrobats. The stage work itself was a marvel to see. They created a flexible space that transformed easily and elegantly across many different configurations.

By contrast with the Cirque de Soleil troupe, Cavalia's colours were more earth tones, softer, less circus primaries and jewel tones, more earthy browns and soft rich colours. The use of projectors to create large backdrops was gorgeous, and they were able to harmonize the projections of movies with the slight billowing of the curtain fabric in interesting ways.

The performance itself was beautiful. Horses are such strong and impressive animals, and these were glossy and chosen to look great together. The training of the animals was excellent. They also have some very strong tumblers and acrobats, and also combine the horsemanship with acrobatics at times.

It was pricey, but worth the money. Definitely would recommend it.
