Mystere 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 classic Cirque du Soleil, combining the powerful athleticism, high-energy acrobatics and inspiring imagery that has become the company’s hallmark. The show 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 will delight all the senses.
Deemed a theatrical “flower in the desert,” Mystère thrills generations of audiences with its exhilarating blend of whimsy, drama and the unimaginable brought to life on stage. Upon entering the theater, you may notice that the ceiling resembles a traditional circus tent. The show starts the second you enter. If you’re not careful, you might be starring in it!
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. 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.
Much of Mystère, described by director Franco Dragone as “a celebration of the cycle of life,” takes on a circular theme, from the semi-round theater to the globe-like ceiling adorned with art.
