Cavalia to perform at The Hospital for Sick Children - Final Toronto Performances to benefit SickKids

Toronto (Ontario) - To thank the City of Toronto for a successful run, Cavalia has extended their performance for one last time. From Monday, May 23-29 $5 dollars from each ticket sold will be donated to support Sick Kids.

For the first time ever, Cavalia will bring their equestrian theatrical performance outside of the Cavalia Big Top (North America’s largest touring tent) to mark the announcement. Sick Kids patients and families will witness a unique performance of the four-legged Cavalia stars and their riders on the front lawn of the hospital.

Cavalia, created by Normand Latourelle, is a grand-scale spectacle involving equestrian art, acrobatics, music, projected images and more than 70 performers, including a troupe of 40 magnificent horses from all over the world.
