Cirque du Soleil is an amazing spectacle, to be sure, but it could use way more horses. Cirque co-founder Normand Latourelle thought that adding an equine element to the mystical acrobatic artistry would really take things up a notch — and he was right. The product of that vision is a theatrical stunner that combines more than 60 horses of different breeds with 46 dancers, riders and acrobats. Odysseo by Cavalia will park a massive big top on the grounds of Dr Pepper Ballpark (7300 Rough Riders Trail, Frisco) and fill it with a breathtaking 3D forest, a giant carousel, swelling music and blue mist that will give way to a team of horses, their human collaborators and an all-around magical experience. It’s a one-of-a-kind event, and you can see it at 7 p.m. Saturday, with additional performances through February 8. Tickets are $29.50 to $149.50; visit cavalia.net for tickets and full schedule..
