Cirque du Soleil is known for their acrobatics, and I was surprised to see one of the trapeze artists fall. Since this is a rare event, it was sort of cool to see a mishap like this, although I would have preferred to see the completed stunt. I really enjoyed the music, so after the show finished in a quick 100 minutes, we went back to the gift shop, which was mobbed with people, to buy a CD as a souvenir. I can't wait until the next Cirque show, either Zumanity or Ka.

What a wacky show! The comic relief was hysterical; be prepared! It involves some audience participation (or should I say specific audience members?). It's the audience participation that makes the show that much more delightful and appealing to all. I say this because I wasn't one of the audience members involved, and thank goodness! It's much better to enjoy the show than be a part of it! Still, fun was had by all. The acrobatics were amazing, to say the least. High up in the air, deep down below, the technical difficulty of some of the stunts was just amazing.
The arena was large enough to seat a good-size crowd, but small enough to give that intimate feeling. The costumes were wacky and weird, but then again, so was the show. I don't do drugs or anything, but I bet this show would be extraordinarily phenomenal if I were high on pot--it's that convoluted at times--but worth the price of admission. Fun can be had by all ages of your family.

For those who appreciate boundaries, there are none. It does not connect, it simply bounds from one act to another, and several go on simultaneously at the same time. My girls LOVED it. I prefer Les Mis. Everyone should see one of these at least once.

To describe any Cirque du Soliel production as a modern circus is not really accurate, and if you are interested in circus acts your time is probably better spent at the tacky Circus Circus. But if you are interested in a mesmerizing show that transports you somewhere beautiful for 90 minutes, "Mystere" is for you. There is minimal narration as the beautiful live music and the amazing artistry of the dancers and acrobats takes center stage. A loose storyline runs through the diverse series of performances, each one more amazing than the last, as they dance across the stage, soar through the air, and even swing from the rafters high overhead. Don't worry about sitting far back from the stage, that just means that you will be closer to the aerial acts.
In my opinion, "Mystere" is one of the shows that you really should not miss while in Las Vegas, and Mr. Clinton agrees. If you want a taste of the show, visit link for video and audio clips and pictures, althought they will not do justice to the immersive experience of seeing the show live. One final word of advice: if you love "Mystere", do NOT be tricked into seeing Cirque du Soliel's other Las Vegas show, "O" at the Bellagio, which is grossly inferior to "Mystere" at a much higher price. If you want more Cirque du Soliel, visit their website and see when their traveling production "Dralion" is coming to your town instead.
Shows are 7:30 and 10:30pm, no shows on Monday or Tuesday. You can get tickets ($80) at link or 800-392-1999
