We guarantee our first season of ‘Troy’ will be longer than six months. Once the first tour finished, according to the feedback from the market, we will make new adjustments, then “Troy” will once again go through Changsha, Nanjing, Hangzhouand other essential cities in China.
Our first tour of “Troy” will last for three years, and will be shown in 9-10 cities of China.
Our plan of taking “Troy” to Las Vegas is also in the process of discussion.
She will be the grand achievement of the history of Chinese performance, with hundreds of well-known horses and Asian and European artists.
She is based on the great literature of ancient Greece that spreads thousands of years- Homer's Epic Poems;
She will lead the audience back to the era when man and god were coexisted. Horses and Beauties, Gods and Heroes are the essential elements throughout the performance; She appeared as film, TV serial, play, animation once, but has never entered the world of SHOW.
Now, through the wind and the clouds, she shall meet the horse appearing as The Epic Horse Show - Troy.
The Definition of Horse Show
Horse Show, as a unique form of live performance among the others, and has risen to prominence in recent years. In the show market, Horse Show has received considerable public acclaim worldwide, more importantly, the commercial operation has reached maturity as well. However, the relevant projects in China are rather rare, and original creations are rather blank.
Regarding the concept of Horse Show, we have to mention the 'primogenitor' of Horse Show - Circus. Circuses were almost exclusively demonstrations of equestrian skills with a few other kinds of acts to relate the horsemanship performances. Nowadays, a circus includes trained animals, trapeze acts, acrobats, magic, etc. By comparison, various differences remain in terms of the concept between Horse Show and Circus. Due to the focus of Horse Show is on the combination of performance of horses and actors/actresses. Unlike the traditional performances, Horse Show delineates a new interpretation, honored as Equestrian Ballet. It integrates with equestrian, drama, opera, dancing and also special effects as one，It is an extraordinarily astonishing and artistic performance, and it will certainly bring the audience into a new bright world. Horse Show is then become a new combination of art and sports, which owns the great advantage unparalleled among the other performances.
