We greatly enjoyed Mystere, particularly the changes that were possible with the moving stage. We had seen La Nouba in Orlando a few months earlier. Out of the two shows, I prefered La Nouba, as it is much more athletic, whereas Mystere seems to place emphasis on artistry over athleticism. From the front row, it was clear that this is an older show, as some of the costumes and props were quite dirty and worn. The entertainment value was not inhibited by this, though. The show runs about 1.5 hours nonstop. The standard tumbling and trapeze acts were part of the show but were much more innovative and daring than an average circus. The show had two very funny characters interlaced in and out of the plot as well. Be careful if you sit in the front row! You may be participating more than you'd like!

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

TIP: Sit in the middle to the back of the theatre. Don't sit in the front. If you sit in the front, you will miss some of the show that is going on above the audience. Go and see this no matter what the cost. It is worth it. I was with a friend when I saw it, and I cannot wait to take my husband to see it. Words cannot describe it.

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.
