The encounter between man and horse will bring its magic to Glendale in less than six weeks. Cavalia, a Cirque du Soleil-type event with horses, will debut in Glendale on April 27, said Norman Latourelle, Cavalia's founder. The city's Redevelopment Agency on Tuesday unanimously approved a deal to bring the production to Glendale. The show will take place in a giant big top, which will be erected on the corner of Orange and Colorado streets. Tickets, with prices ranging from $29 to $79, will go on sale Thursday at Cavalia's box office at www.cavalia.

Josh Kleinbaum Amid the near-unanimous praise and support for Cavalia, the Cirque du Soleil-type event coming to Glendale in just over a month, there is a murmur of concern from the community -- cars. With 1,800 people expected to come to Glendale for the show each day, where are these cars going to park? How bad will traffic be? City officials, though, insist that the extra traffic generated by the show will not be overbearing. In fact, they are more concerned about feet than cars.

Josh Kleinbaum Cirque du Soleil and the Kentucky Derby could come together in downtown Glendale this spring. On Tuesday, the city's Redevelopment Agency will consider an agreement with Cavalia, a Cirque du Soleil-type event featuring horses that could bring more than 14,000 people to downtown Glendale each week. "This is great for the city," said Harry Hall, president of the Downtown Glendale Merchants Assn. and owner of Milano's Cucina Italiana restaurant.

Josh Kleinbaum After four days of ticket sales, it seems the hype surrounding Cavalia, a Cirque du Soleil-type event featuring horses, is translating into ticket sales. Sales for Cavalia's initial 10-shows-in-10-days run are thriving, and officials are considering putting another week on sale, Cavalia spokesman Martin Roy said. "We always had very good experience with sales," Roy said. "We were born under a good sign." Cavalia will open in a giant big top at the corner of Orange and Colorado streets on April 27. Roy would not give a specific number of tickets sold, but he said he expects the show to continue at a 95% to 97% capacity in the 1,800-seat canopy, similar to its San Francisco, Toronto and Montreal runs.

Josh Kleinbaum When organizers of Cavalia, a Cirque du Soleil-type performance featuring horses and acrobats, were considering options for a Los Angeles-area venue, they did their homework. They looked at spots from Santa Monica to Santa Anita Park in Arcadia. They also looked at the Grove, a shopping hotspot in West Los Angeles owned and operated by developer Rick Caruso. The Grove did not have enough open space for the 26,264-foot big top. But Caruso knew another place that might.

Displaying amazing animal-human interactions, Cavalia presents its awe-inspiring originality under a multispired tent at the juncture of the Golden State Freeway and the Burbank Boulevard overpass. It would be grossly understating to summarize this one-of-a-kind experience as merely a hybrid of a traditional circus and a Cirque du Soleil production, although there are elements of both on display. Artistic/show director Normand Latourelle and his cast have instead crafted a historical tribute to the millennia-old relationship between mankind and horses.

Robert Chacon It's not just horse lovers who will be sorry to see Cavalia leave Glendale after this weekend. Restaurant managers who saw a jump in business during the show's five-week run will also miss it. The show, which features acrobats atop horses, is wrapping up its month-long stay after today's show. Cavalia has been a boon to restaurants in Glendale's central shopping district on Brand Boulevard with an increase in customers grabbing dinner before the show's 8 p.m. start time, restaurant managers said.
