Cirque du Soleil - Mystere at the Treasure Island in Las Vegas
Mystere was the first Cirque show to gain a permanent residence at its own theater in Las Vegas, after first opening at Treasure Island in 1993. Since then it has been seen by approximately 12 million people and in 2010 saw its 8,000th performance!
The show focuses on the origins of life in the universe, with mythological elements. This theme is the inspiration for the show's costumes, set design and music. One such costume is the Firebird, who has red feathers and accents that give the impression of embers flying through the air. It's a true exhibition of strength and stamina, one performance is on a rotating dome that demands extreme precision from the artists!
Honored eight times as "Best Production Show" by the Las Vegas Review-Journal Mystere has an international cast of 72 performers featuring dancers, singers, musicians and champion-caliber acrobats.
