Media got to meet the 65 horses, who have been staying at a Springfield farm, at a media event Tuesday.

Cavalia’s Odysseo is a $30-million theatrical production that combines the talents of horses and riders, acrobats and theatrical effects under an enormous big top in a show its founder and artistic director says pushes the limits. It opens Sept. 10 in the tent erected last month at the corner of Sterling Lyon Parkway and Kenaston Boulevard.
