WINNER: Congratulations to kimmiet!

Apassionata has been Europe’s most popular live arena show for nearly a decade, thrilling more than five million fans across 15 countries with a breathtaking display of the beauty and the bond between horse and rider.

Now Apassionata comes to our area at The IZOD Center to take audiences through a magical adventure featuring more than 40 horses, with exhilarating equine stunts by the world’s best performers. Breeds from Friesians to Bretons – some rarely seen in North America – and their riders were brought from Europe to create this evocative theatrical event. From trick riding to liberty dressage, these teams have honed their craft on a single breed for generations. With graceful horsemanship and enchanting music, this equestrian sensation captivates families and horse lovers alike.

Directed by Scott Faris (“Walking with Dinosaurs”) and featuring an award-winning Broadway creative team, Apassionata “The Beginning” is sure to give audiences of all ages an unforgettable experience.

    My friend Flicka. Then again, I really enjoyed War Horse, corny as it was.

    I am a hugeee horse lover! I ride and show and major in equine business management so, I’ve pretty much seen every horse movie known to man. That being said, I have a tie between Black Beauty and All the Pretty Horses. Black Beauty is a classic tale from my childhood which really made me fall in love with horses. All the Pretty Horses I did not watch until I was a teenager but it was a great movie with a good plot.

And we can get this project completed in time for Montclair's sesquicentennial when we can stick a fork into historic preservation as a public policy.
