Mystère by Cirque du Soleil is a vibrant 90-minute circus-style production that combines whimsical grace and beauty with powerful and precise athleticism. Mystère is as colorful as it is amazing. With a cast of 75 artists, a live orchestra playing Taiko drums, and a hint of humor, Mystère is sure to delight all the senses.
Upon entering the theater, you may notice that the ceiling resembles a traditional circus tent. The show starts the second you enter and if you're not careful, you might be starring in it! You might want to keep on the lookout for an usher with a funny grin and a crooked tie. It's true that he will show you to your seat...eventually.
As the lights go up, the performers come down. Swinging trapeze artists are lowered into the audience, filling the room with anticipation and excitement. Mystère is a kaleidoscope of fantastical creatures that will take you on a ride into a world where nothing is as it seems. People and things will twist and change right before your eyes. No matter how many times you see Mystère, you are sure to notice something different every time.
Mystère found its home at Treasure Island in 1993 and has been a permanent fixture in the hotel ever since. Mystère is a perfect show for children of all ages, because the show is bright and cheerful throughout and almost never dark or scary. Another factor that adds to the excitement is Mystère's use of audience participation. Like any circus, there is a mischievous clown that is trying to sabotage the show. He is, of course, unsuccessful. Particularly amazing acts include the juggling of a wire cube that is bigger than the performer. The costumes in Mystère are especially brilliant in color and fashion. Head-dresses, masks, and exotic face paint complete the unique spectacle that is Mystère.—bestofvegas.com
