There was magic inside AT&T Park for The Giants in the 2010 season to carry San Francisco to it’s first World Series championship, and there’s been magic inside the white, ten story big-top tent across China Basin throughout the Holiday season with this spectacular show. Created by co-founder of Cirque Du Solei, Normand Latourelle, this elaborately staged fantasy outdoes it’s legendary predecessor in focusing specifically on the relationship between man and horse without overwhelming the senses with too much action to take in all at once. The description of “dream-like” is not hyperbole. The virtual settings captivate and transport you. The horses interplay with the riders, acrobats, aerialists and each other in truly enchanting ways. Was fortunate to have caught the show last Thursday night and was captivated by the staging, the music and the talented cast on two and four legs. There is an added performance tonight at 7pm and Monday at 8pm, with the final show on Tuesday January 4th at 8pm. The next stop is Burbank.
