How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Being income-challenged these last few years, I typically allow myself to purchase a ticket to an event only if it's for under $40. But having foregone too many Cirque de Soleil events the last few years, and loving the beauty and grace of horses, I just had to treat myself. And, boy, was it worth it! My friend and I greatly enjoyed the experience, from the fabulous sets and costumes, the formidable equestrians/trick riders, aerialists, acrobats, and musicians, to the amazing horses themselves. Chapeaux! a tous les entraineurs!!!! The silks act, with 4 horses/riders and aerialists, was lovely. And I really want to know how they did the water pool, which was a fantastic effect. Elise Verdoncq, who led her horse through its Lipizzan paces, was superb -- gently, calmly commanding, and totally in sync with her horse. I highly recommend Odysseo!

Help others enjoy a great night out

Thanks to previous attendee who clued me in to Fleet Garage in the retail are, which costs only $9 for 4 hours, versus the $20 up at the tent. The free shuttle service was great from garage to venue was much appreciated.
