Next week, a special performance is being held down at the Valencia Harbor. Get ready to thrill to Cavalia: an acrobatic equestrian odyssey. That’s right: it’s an acrobatic equestrian odyssey.
Why can’t I stop laughing when I say that? Cavalia: a cross between Cirque du Soleil and the rodeo. Just what you’ve been waiting for!
I’m sorry, I’ll try to take it more seriously:
Bwah! Cavalia, you thwart all attempts at constraint!
Honestly though, it looks like it might be pretty cool. Cavalia, which originated in Canada, has actually garnered rave reviews during its 5 year tour of the world. And starting on the 25th, it will be in Valencia for six shows, on the esplanade of the Veles e Vents building at the harbor.
Tickets start at €30, and run up to €160 for those horse-dance maniacs hoping to get showered in spittle. The shows are are at 9pm on Tuesday through Saturday, with afternoon performances at 4pm on Saturday and 3:30pm on Sunday. Tickets can be purchased at cavalia.es
By the way, the official name of the show is Cavalia: A Dream of Liberty. And no, I’m not shitting you. It’s the greatest thing ever.
