Question of the Day
What do you get when you mix Cirque du Soleil-style acrobatics with more than 50 trained horses? You get Cavalia’s “Odysseo,” a circus-style performance that combines breathtaking equestrianism and acrobatics with high-tech special effects. Founded by Normand Latourelle, one of the co-founders of the Cirque du Soleil franchise, Cavalia is dedicated to telling the story of the relationship between humans and horses since the beginning of time. Cavalia’s second production “Odysseo” boasts a talented cast of 63 horses and 47 acrobats that engage in trick riding, vaulting and impressive dressage under a 125-foot tent. For a limited time, Cavalia is offering a “shutdown rebate” with 50 percent off tickets — as well as a splurge-worthy VIP package that includes a pre-show dinner and open bar as well as a tour of the stable following the performance. Through Oct. 27 at the Plateau at the National Harbor, 201 Harborview Ave., Fort Washington. 866/999-8111. Web: cavalia.net.
