Sixty-five magnificent horses are taking a well-deserved rest on a Tennessee farm. The four-legged stars recently sold out performances for Cavalia Odysseo in Toronto and are now receiving some much-needed rest before starting up another 12-day run of performances in Nashville.

The world's largest touring production, Cavalia Odysseo, reintroduces audiences of all ages to the centuries-old relationship between humans and horses. Cavalia founder and co-founder of Cirque du Soleil, Normand Latourelle, joined us today to discuss this jaw-dropping production. 

This show includes 65 horses, of 12 different breeds, and 50 artists, including acrobats, aerialists, dancers, and live musicians. It marries the equestrian arts, stage arts, and high-tech theatrical effects. 

Cavalia Odysseo is housed under the world's largest touring tent, known as the White Big Top.  It stands 12 stories high and covers 58,397 square feet. Twenty-six motors are required to raise the 118,019 square foot canvas. Check out the photos of the tent raising in Nashville, and watch the videos above to find out more about this unique show that brings acrobats and horses together in a magical experience.
