CHEVAL, means "horse" in French, and is the innovation of Gilles Ste- Croix,
who as director of creation developed many Cirque du Soleil shows including
"Mystere", "O", and "Dralion". For Ste-Croix, CHEVAL is the fulfillment of a
life long dream - "of a show that celebrates and showcases the extraordinary
capabilities of horses in partnership with man".
