Mystère™ by Cirque du Soleil®
The answers to the mystery of life are expressed with extreme acrobatics at Treasure Island, Las Vegas. Mystère ™ is classic Cirque du Soleil ®; it is all the excitement and wonder you want to see at a circus, plus unique sets, bright and intricate costumes, live music, comedy and more. Their blend of music, storytelling, and high energy thrills make Mystère ™ a Las Vegas show not to be missed.
If you are looking for pure excitement, the stage of Mystère ™ will satisfy even the most thrill-hungry show goer. The international cast of 75 artists in Mystère™ are some of the most talented on the strip. The combination of stamina, strength, and balance of the two hand to hand brothers is gracefully remarkable. The two brawny Alexis brothers perform hand maneuvers that demonstrate unimaginable body control all the while on a rotating dome. Also, there’s the Korean plank, which is basically a seesaw that is used to propel the footmen of Mystère ™ high above the stage. As one falls, the other is launched and performs complex somersaults or lands to complete a human pyramid. The list of highly specialized performers continues with an aerialist that flies above the crowd and bungee jumpers who swing and twirl through the air with colorfully flowing costumes that paint the top of the arena like fireworks. It is no wonder why Mystère ™ has mystified audiences; it is the original Cirque du Soleil® show in Las Vegas and still one of the most popular.
Get into the show! If you are lucky, you might be called to help some of the intermittent acts of Mystère ™.

The snail is called Alice. The giant inflatable version of Alice is controlled by four puppeteers inside her; they guide the puppet by looking at markings on the floor. The biggest taiko drum in the show weights half a ton and cannot leave the theater because there is no exit large enough. The amazing make-up of Mystère ™ is self-applied by each artist.
