Jan. 18, 2006 -- Cavalia, the equestrian spectacle witnessed by nearly 1 million spectators to date, will make its exclusive Houston debut on January 24 in the Uptown/Galleria area and run through February 5. The show will then move to the West end of Dallas from March 21 to April 2.

Created by Normand Latourelle, one of the founders of Cirque du Soleil, Cavalia had engagements in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Phoenix, San Diego, Boston, Washington, D.C., Toronto and Montreal.

The show transports spectators to dream-like settings while depicting the timeless bond between horses and humans. It is a grand-scale spectacle involving acrobatics, music, projected images and a stellar lineup of equestrians.

Cavalia's equine cast of 44 horses (nearly half are stallions) includes Lusitanos, Quarter Horses, Paint Horses, Canadian Horses, Percherons, Belgian, Spanish horses and the newest additions to the cast--three colorful Appaloosa colts, who made their debut in Boston in September 2005.

Infused with live music and vocals, the show features European "horse-whisperer" Frédéric Pignon and his wife, Magali Delgado. The show takes place under North America's largest touring tent--a 26,264-sq. ft. White Big Top rising over 100 feet. Water screens, snow and falling leaves enhance the magic on stage in front of the constantly changing background.
