Sam Alvarez is one of 48 human cast members in the world’s largest touring production. A trained aerialist and coach, Alvarez works alongside 65 horses in “Odysseo,” which has been produced by the Montreal-based company Cavalia since 2011.
More than two million people in Canada, the United States and Mexico have seen the show so far, according to Cavalia. “Odysseo” began its run in Chicago April 1 and will run through May 21.
