Apassionata – Ovations Tour The Greatest Horse Spectacular In The World Apassionata, Europe’s most successful horse show and riding event, boasting more than 500,000 visitors last season, returns with a new programme, “Ovations” to the Metro Radio Arena for 2 sensational shows at 3pm & 7.30pm on Saturday 4th March 2006. Whereas last season’s tour centred on the noblest of the Baroque breeds, APASSIONATA’s new programme takes it’s audience on a journey of discovery that weaves its way around the entire globe. “World of horses – Horses of the World”. This is the motto according to which we have brought together a spectacular troupe of the most well-known and most unique breeds of horses from all over the world. It is with this impressive ensemble that we have created the magnificent “Ovations” programme – an unequalled outstanding event. APASSIONATA is a virtual explosion of emotions. Never before has the passion between human and animal been so strongly felt and effusively displayed. This show is a treat for the whole family, for connoisseurs of horses and horse lovers everywhere. Stormy Cossacks, versatile Quarter Horses, august Friesians, fascinating wild horses from the Cartuja, Heavy Horses (“Cold Breeds”), proud Andalusians, and noble Lusitanos demonstrate the endless variety and diversity characterising the world of horses, in a grand show never before seen. APASSIONATA is a breathtaking programme of entertainment at the highest level. Gallant steeds, first-class horsemanship, an aesthetic interplay of splendidly coloured, authentic costumes, stirring music with live singing and astonishing lighting effects all come together to create perfect settings and genuine atmosphere. Metro Radio Arena ‘s Marketing Director Paul Tappenden said: - “After the success of the spectacular production in April this year which resulted in an extra show having to be added, the return of Apassionata to the Metro Radio Arena is news which will delight the whole family.” Tickets costing £29, £25,& £18 (tickets may be subject to service charge) are on general sale from Saturday 10th September 2005.
