Mystere is a high-energy Cirque du Soleil shows classic, which features the powerful athleticism, inspiring imagery and acrobatics merged as one and has become the company’s hallmark. Conceived a theatrical “flower in the desert”, Mystere provides the excellence in drama, powerful blend of whimsy and the fantastic brought to life on stage. It is presented exclusively at Treasure Island and describes the show as a celebration of life, and life itself is a mystery.
It creates another world filled with magic and outlandish creatures which have different characteristics. Behind these magical settings are great circus acts including Aerial High Bar, Chinese Poles, Korean Plank, Fast Track, Trampoline, Hand to Hand, Aerial Cube, Hand Balancing and a Clown.
Mystere consists of 75 performers featuring musicians, singers, dancers and caliber acrobats. Some of the characters include The Spermatos and Spermatites, they are like viruses, contaminating the world of Mystere with infectious folly. They are the seeds of life, moving wildly to fulfill their destinies; The Red Bird, which leaps over higher in his futile attempt to take to the skies; Les Laquias, the footmen of Mystere. Their objective is to serve and support others in their pursuit of happiness; Brian Le Petit, a trouble maker, always doing things he shouldn’t, always in the wrong place and at the wrong time; Les Bebes, always in search of warmth and food; La Vache A Lait, the protector of babies and a symbol of fertility; and the Black Widow, a praying mantis who destroys the illusions and dreams of her victims.
Mystere was first performed on December 25, 1993 and immediately won the hearts of the audiences because of its remarkable performance and unique style of circus entertainment. Mystere received awards eight times as “Best Production Show” by the Las Vegas Review Journal. With its spectacular acts, it will bring the audiences into a magical world, where the past, present and the future immerse.
