Lipizzaner Stallions to perform June 24

The World Famous Lipizzaner Stallions will be performing 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 24,
at Beasley Coliseum.

The Lipizzaner Stallions are on their 35th Anniversary Tour in 2005. In 1970, Producer Gary Lashinsky created a new family arena attraction.

Many horses and riders were brought from Europe to perform in this unique family oriented arena attraction. Over the years, twenty-three million people throughout North and South America, Great Britain, Europe, Australia and Hawaii have seen this internationally acclaimed spectacle.

All new music, choreography and routines have been incorporated in this anniversary edition with a major emphasis on the historical background and foundation of the Lipizzaner breed, from its original breeding and use as a horse of war to a horse of nobility and aristocracy to a living form of equestrian art. The show emulates the Spanish Riding School of Vienna, Austria, in its presentation of Lipizzans, and maintains a traditional as well as entertaining performance similar in many ways to what you would see at the Spanish Riding School of Vienna.

Also included in the performance is a segment called the “Airs Above the Ground.” These are the spectacular leaps and maneuvers, once used by riders in saddle to protect and defend themselves on the battlefield, which are now preserved as an equestrian work of art. When you see the Lipizzans perform, it is like stepping back four hundred years and viewing one of the greatest equine ballets in history.

Tickets are $24.50 golden circle (a front row seat that is reserved). All other seats are general admission for $19.50. ($2.00 discount off $19.50 for children 12 and under)
