The grand scale multi-media and multi-disciplinary theatrical production will feature 50 horses and 43 riders, aerialists, acrobats, dancers and musicians from around the world.  The show is a harmonious celebration of beauty and nature, encompassing imagery that whisks the spectator’s imagination around the earth over land and sea by displaying a vast array of equestrian and performing arts. The show comes to Asia during the auspicious year of the horse in the Chinese Zodiac.
