MYSTÈRE LAS VEGAS
Mystère is one of Cirque du Soleil’s more athletic productions – and that’s saying something!
Indeed, Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas is always captivatingly energetic. However, Mystère takes the action to a whole other level.
The performers fly around overhead, swathed in luxurious silk.
Some audience members may interpret each act as an allegory, but with the innovative costumes and performances, realizing those themes isn’t necessary for enjoying this show.
Mystère is also comedic though, offering moments of pure laughter from its hilarious MCs. As a result, it is highly suitable for adults and children. Mystère is charming, family-friendly, and one of the most amusing Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas.
Taking place at the Mystère Theatre at Treasure Island most days, the show is inspired by a number of different cultures, Mystère takes from circus acts, acrobatics and street performers, along with a little old theatrical influence with Commedia Dell’Arte.
The aerial acrobats will blow your mind, and the stunning set adds to the magical spectacle in front of you. It’s a gorgeous and colourful production full of amazing acrobatics and plenty of comedy to lighten the spellbound atmosphere.
Powerful athleticism, high-energy acrobatics and inspiring imagery fill the air. Deemed a theatrical “flower in the desert,” Mystère thrills audiences with an exhilarating blend of whimsy, drama and the unimaginable. It offers the ultimate discovery that life itself is a mystery.
They leap from one trapeze to another at dizzying heights. The Chinese poles are also used to create a stunning display of choreography.
Exclusive to Treasure Island
Even if you get covered in popcorn, you won’t want to stop the clown from posing as an usher and engaging in some pre-show debauchery with the crowd. With his black suit and disheveled gray hair, he has no problem amusing people.
The clown is zany, mischievous and your first exposure to the unknown at Mystère by Cirque du Soleil at Treasure Island. What’s ahead is a wondrous world of mystifying creatures who perform a series of incredible acrobatic and gymnastic feats.
From rebirth to the pursuit of happiness, each of the characters and acts in Mystère symbolizes something different. They combine to create an overall theme for the show as a celebration of the circle of life.
When Mystère opened in 1993, the show was the first Cirque du Soleil production in Vegas. Emphasizing awe-inspiring athleticism and imaginative imagery, it embraces all of the signature Cirque du Soleil elements that have made the production company a mainstay on the Las Vegas Strip.
