Mystere is the longest running Cirque Du Soleil show in Las Vegas. Most locals will tell you if you haven’t seen a Cirque show, Mystere is the one to start with. It features the truly mind-blowing acrobatic talents that Cirque Du Soleil is known for.
Of all the Cirque shows, Mystere stands alone as the only one that focuses solely on the amazing talents of the performers, thus it could be described as the most pure or authentic Cirque show. For example, Love celebrates the music of The Beatles. KA is like watching a full length movie lacking acrobatics. One focuses on the music of Michael Jackson. Mystere is different in that it simply places the spotlight on the astounding acrobatics of the performers.
Everything about the show is mesmerizing except the giant baby who opens the show and appears sporadically throughout. The baby is an obese man in costume who acts like an infant but it isn’t humorous in the least.
Seating is stadium style and semi-circle around the stage. We were in the second chunk of seats away from the stage, directly in the middle and could see everything perfectly. Every seat seemed to offer a good view. If you don’t want to be picked on and made a part of the show, do NOT sit in the first few rows. About 5 people were selected and embarrassed.
