You pronounce it “Oh-Dis-Eh-Oh” and it’s pretty spectacular. It’s a traveling Cirque du Soleil type show that is now playing in Burbank, CA. If you’re in the area, it’s worth going. I took my sister and my eight-month old baby and all of us enjoyed it.

The pop-up theater is inside a big-top tent that is the size of a 10-story building and can hold an audience of 2,000. Odysseo redefines the circus.

I wasn’t sure what to expect out of Adele. But of course, she was great. She LOVED the show. She sat quiet during the entire show, completely mesmerized by the performance.

We had awesome seats, really up close and she took in the sights and sounds and enjoyed herself. Proof that Odysseo is fun for all ages!

I am truthfully not much of a horse person (I’m terrified of them actually), but I couldn’t deny the beauty and talent of these gorgeous animals in the show. I was impressed.

In all, there are 67 horses in the show (belonging to 11 different breeds). Some of them jumped, some of them ‘danced’… and all of them wowed the audience again and again.

The performers were great as well. It was high-energy and exciting to watch. The lighting and stage was also impressive. The video backdrop is the size of three IMAX screens. And during the finale, the stage becomes an 80,000 gallon water tank and the performance continues in and around it.

This was Adele’s first live theater event and it is safe to say she loved it!
