Mystere by Cirque du Soleil is a vibrant 90-minute circus-style production that combines whimsical grace and beauty with powerful and precise athleticism. Cirque du Soleil’s Mystere is as colorful as it is amazing. With a cast of 75 artists, a live orchestra, and a hint of humor, Mystere will 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.
Mystere does a lot of the standard acts you’d expect in any circus better than you’ve ever seen before. There are clowns, trapeze artists, trampoline performances, and aerial tissue acts unlike any other show in the world. In addition, Mystere has created some unique, one-of-a-kind performances, including the aerial cube and the chinese poles. The aerial cube is a giant box constructed from metal cubes suspended in the air, in which a performer does wild and daring spins and tricks. The Chinese poles are three poles around which a troupe of performers do synchronized acrobatics. All of these amazing feats are performed to a soundtrack of incredible live music, including a celebrated group of Taiko drummers whose massive drums create thunderous beats, making the experience as impressive to your eyes as it is to your ears.
Mystere 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 Mystere’s use of audience participation.
