The few things that Mystère is known for include the neat acrobatics, circus acts and of course, the visual treat of a theater. The true spirit of theatricality is portrayed through this production that bring in beauteous costumes (not just the performers, but the seamless staging) with a pitch perfect score to produce an experience that contributes solely to a mesmerizing evening of theater.
Some of the best acrobatic acts that still continue to stun the audiences include bungee (artists bouncing off bungees into the sky), Taiko (artists swaying to powerful rhythms on Taiko drums), and the Flying Trapeze. You also get to see performers jump between four silver poles with stunning agility. Clearly the acts put on have evolved over the years, but the major “feel” of the show remains the same, as Franco Dragone (of La Perle fame), one of the original creators of Cirque Du Soleil, insisted that that the audience were never separated from the artist by a curtain.
“Mystere, perhaps the best production show in Las Vegas, continues to amaze and delight fans from around the world with its blend of avant-garde circus routines and stylish entertainment at Treasure Island. It is extremely entertaining, with something happening onstage and throughout the theater for most of the performance.”

“Backing up to see the forest through the pastel leotards, one thing comes into focus upon a repeat viewing: “Mystere” is the funniest Cirque on the Strip. Cirque du Soleil will be making a push to advertise what’s new about “Mystere,” but the show’s real strengths are still the things that aren’t.”
