Cavalia in Houston

Cavalia Comes to Houston
— reported by KUHF

The biggest touring tent in North America is now up in the Galleria area. The 110-foot tall Big Top houses the adventurous and innovative production of Cavalia.


Acrobats, aerialists, riders and horses will perform in the 26,000 square-foot Big Top. Normand Latourelle is the president and artistic director behind Cavalia. He was also one of the co-founders of Cirque du Soleil.


The Big Top may be up now but it’ll take 12 days to erect all seven tents in the Galleria area. The production involves 44 horses. Each horse does no more than seven shows a week. It can take anywhere from six months to ten years to train a horse for Cavalia. The show opens January 24th.
