Praised for its excellent treatment of their equine performers, this family-friendly event celebrates the magnificent grace and artistry of the horse.

You say Cavalia is "family-friendly." Maybe if your family's name is Anschutz, it is. Have you checked out the price of tickets?
My thoughts exactly. I breaks my heart to not even be able to mention it to my little horse lover, because we can't afford to go.
I agree. I read in the Denver Post article that "It's also not cheap: The public can grab obstructed-view tickets for under $50, but prime seats on a weekend run $70 to $100."
My word choice "family friendly" was in reference to content of the event, not the economic ramifications of a family attending.
I recently joked with a friend that if perhaps we went in together for a ticket we could share a seat, trading places at the intermission. Sadly, this very cool event is likely out of a lot of people's price range these days.
Maybe an intrepid couple should try smuggling their way in -- in one of those two-person horse costumes.
