Don't miss the original and longest running show of the Cirque du Soliel series at the Treasure Island Hotel on the Vegas Strip. MYSTERE is a a high energy show full of fast paced action acrobatic stunts of stunning proportion. A feast of music, lights and color with numerous activities all around you. The first time we say it we saw it we bought ticket the night of the show and were seated in the back last row. Believe me there is is not a bad seat in this theater designed for this exciting and funny show. The second time I booked our seat up front month before we went.
A good tip is to do this if you want an up front seat, beware that if you are up front you will have a great view but you also may become part of the show. If you have never seen a Cirque production you should know that the story ins told in a strange magical language with music and acting that will entrace you. The story line is exciting, sweet and funny, don't miss this one when you visit Vegas.
Amazing show. The production is just beautiful. It's on water. Sometimes they trick you and have things on land and sometimes they have some sinking effects. I cannot find words to describe it, it was simply amazing. Worth the price!
Your feel like you are in some venetian forest dream.
On my last night, I saw the Cirque du Soleil show 'Love', based on the legacy and music of The Beatles. The creators of the show collaborated with George Harrison before his death and also with his wife so it's really well done. This show was absolutely fabulous. Words cannot even describe the acrobatics and stunts that these performers do!
The show follows The Beatles' rise chronologically, with various acrobatic scenes set to the music. There are stunts on the stage involving trampolines, rollerblade ramps, and various props, stunts in the air on bungee cords and ropes, and many other amazing things. There is so much going on in each scene, you almost don't know where to look! The stage is in the center of the theater and the rows of seats are all around the stage.
There is a video clip on the cirque du soleil website, which I recommend taking a look at if you think you might want to purchase tickets. My ticket cost $108 from their website (this show hardly ever has half-price tickets available at those ticket booths on the strip so buy in advance if you really want to see) for the front row balcony, and I actually think I got a great seat because there are stunts happening in the air and if you had a lower seat you would have to tilt your neck up the whole time. In the front row, there was nobody in front of me and I could keep looking up and down to see all of the action. Plus, performers would fly in over our heads on wires across the theater!
Cirque with an Edge! This is their adult show - risque, tantilizing and a lot of fun! Not the best show in Vegas, but if you like pretty, semi naked athletic people; midgets; people in fishnets; and a little sauciness, you may enjoy!
I'd see this again.
My wife and I went to this show while in Vegas last week. Two words: "TOTALLY AWESOME !!". I'll admit there were a couple of slow spots but overall it was an outstanding show experience !! Buy the higher up cheap seats to really enjoy the show. If you like music from The Beatles you really should make plans to go while your in Vegas.
Loved It! It was a very moving and amazing show!
They just make you appreciate the human body and it's awesome capabilities! The show transformed me to another place for the short time I was there.
How the performers made everything look so effortless and magical! It was truly watching a dream come to life.
I have seen other Cirque shows and this is my favorite by far.
TIP: Every seat in the house is good, it;s not a very big set-up. If you like the music, get it there, they don't sell it anywhere else.
The 90 minutes you'll be in the show and the $100+ you'll spend for the tickets will seem like minutes and pennies as you reflect back on the joy and wonderment you'll be feeling for months afterwards.
This show is unique even by Cirque standards. It's more about enjoying and celebrating the meaning that The Beatles brought to the world and our lives. Not as much of the amazing acrobatics that you see at other Cirque shows, and all the music is original Beatles.
Believe me, if you grew up with the Beatles or have come to respect them now, without living through the Beatles, you will totally love this show.
We booked this show as the three days that we were in Vegas 'O' was closed for two of the nights and the only night they were open it was sold out.
Many of the shows go 'dark' on a Monday and Tuesday so give yourself plenty of time in advance to book tickets online so that you get maximum choice of the show you want to watch.
Before you walk in there is an almost Amsterdam Red Light District feel to the place. Lots of cast are in costume on display acting out various roles.
The 'show' started off very much like an adults pantomime. Some of the cast work their way around the audience having jokes of a sexual element. If you are easily offended this show is not for you.
There are a few amazing moments like the two female acrobats in what can only be described as a human sized wine glass full of water. This gives me a feeling of what 'O' would be like. The other amazing moment is the guy and girl on the swing that flies over your heads, quite spectacular.
There is a lot of interesting costumes all of a sexual nature and some great music. The show has no real story but is more a montage of lots of little routines/scenes put together, all with music more often than not sung by a guy dressed as a woman.
We booked the 'sofa' seats which are not really worth the extra money. Any seat in the main area of the theatre is fine. Dont pick the front few rows though if you dont want to be 'picked' on by the cast for entertainment.
This show is highly entertaining and if you are open minded and have seen the other shows in Vegas then this might be worth a visit. But if like me you want to some some acrobatics that will blow you away this show has a few but will leave you wanting to have seen more.
Hmmm. I'm sure it would have been a great show. If we could have seen it better, we would have liked it better. No matter that the ticket agents say there are no bad seats (and they are kinda right, it wasn't a blocked view or anything) we didn't get to really see what was happening. See we were too far away, and while you can see the patterns of what happens, a lot of the details are lost on us at the back. You actually get a better show on tv and it's a lot cheaper. If you are not on a budget and get to see it up close, it must be fantastic. The aerial stunts that we couldn't see clearly were great. It must have been unbelievable to be right underneath it. So the farthest back seat in the corner is not really worth the amount we paid for it and we got a fairly good deal too. But it was still good to be able to say that we went to see Cirque du Soliel.
Go to tickets 4 tonight for decent tickets at great prices. You don't need to book far in advance for anything but the big names. You can get tickets at these places for the day of and they are about half the price of going through the ticket retailers.
Don't expect headliners or Cirque du Soliel though.
We went and saw Ka while we were in Vegas at the MGM Grand. This was the most astouding show we have ever seen. It was worth every penny. The operation of the stage alone was worth the money. The special effects, the music and the costumes were incredible.Certainly a "must see" in my opinion.
If you are a Cirque fan, the Le Reve will be a hit for you. I have seen all the CDS shows, except for the Beatle's themed one, and each has their own unique appeal. When I take my wife to shows, I want to be entertained, so we skip musicians and opt for the Vegas style shows. Le Reve (the dream) is very good.
The show is 90 minutes long and moves along at a very brisk pace. Yes...most of the show is in or around water, but much of the action takes place in the sky. There are some amazing stunts, and wonderful music.
If you want something different, and enjoy watching people do things that you can't, then spend the $100 and see this show. I would also advise sitting in the fourth row or higher...no splash zone.
Vegas has a gazillion shows to choose from, ranging from musical acts to magic to comedy to amazingly daring acrobatics and several Cirque du Soleil performances.
My sister and I chose to see Cirque du Soleil's "O", performed at the Bellagio. The acrobatics and water acts were simply breathtaking. Stunts included running on water, contortionists, high diving into the stage pool, fire twirling and trapeze acts.
We just saw this show in Las Vegas, and you must beg, borrow or steal to get tickets, it's that good. The show is so incredible. It filled all my senses with such beauty I was on the brink of tears. Hubby said it was "amazing" and he has never used that word as long as I have known him, so I'm not the only one who thinks it's impressive!
The Cirque du Soleil show is based on a retrospect of the Beatle's music, and covers it pretty much from beginning to end. Some special features of the show include speakers on the back of each chair to surround you with the music, plus if you are in the orchestra to upper orchestra sections, you get included in the show. Ahhh, it would be tellling if I spill the beans how exactly you get included in the show. So go get some tickets now!!
Mystere at Treasure Island is a circus unlike I have ever seen before. A mystical, primordial extravaganza celebrating the human condition. Overwhelming scenery, you never know where to look at any given time, because at any given time something extraordinary is occurring! Original music, costumes and talent beyond your wildest imagination saturates your senses and transport you for 2 hours to another universes where gravity is defied on a regular basis.
My favorite is the "hand to hand" 2 brothers who stand atop a rotating dome, with a remarkable display of sheer strength and endurance go through gravity-defying body positions. Our seats were 2nd row center, I was so close I could see just 1 drop of sweat fall and the miniscule flicker of a bicep and no other signs of strain or effort were noted. Amazing!!!
My other favorite was the red bird girl who tumbled using a row of trampolines. How can she possibly turn her back handsprings with such velocity?!! The clowns are hysterical and the audience is drawn into play as well. I so enjoyed this show that I would consider returning for another show. Cirque du Soliel has several shows in Las Vegas....Zumanity, O , Ka, and Mystere and the new show with George Martin of the Beatles fame who arranged this show about the Beatles called, "LOVE." All of the shows are well worth the price of admission.
In September 2006 CatherineCG and I went to the Bellagio Hotel to see "O." This show is best viewed up in the balcony so you can see into the 1.5 million gallon tank of water that is part of the stage. High dives and trapeze acts leave you reeling with thoughts about the human body and its' capabilites! The staging of "O" must have been a huge undertaking!
