You don’t know what to feel. You’re looking down at the seat that
matches the number on your ticket in your hand, and you cop a squat on that bad boy as the lights start
to go down. The air is warm with excitement. You don’t know what you’re going to see, you
just know its gonna be good…
Wouldn’t just be great if you could get that kinda vibe every time you go out? It’s no
wonder Mystère by Cirque du Soleil set its stage in the entertainment capital of the world,
Las Vegas. Its visual orgasm of exploding excitement just tantalizes your mind. The show is jam packed
with explosive acrobatics and acts to entice your eyes and keep you on the edge of your seat. I can’t
even begin to explain the feeling that takes over your body as you intently witness these feats that
seem inhumanly possible or that just blatantly defy the laws of gravity.
The show’s over the top production incorporates some of the best set designs and costumes that
could even make your dreams start to feel bland. Mystère’s long-running record stands
to its testament and value. Since its debut in 1993 at Treasure Island on the center of the strip,
the show has continued to enthrall ticket holders. With the beat of a huge Japanese Taiko Drum, you
know the show’s begun.
One by one, acts like the Aerial Cube and the Korean Plank showcase some of the rawest awe-inspiring
acrobatics, juggling, and dance. The great thing about it, besides the performances themselves, is
how they tie them together. The comedy shorts between the acts by circus clowns keep you involved and
interested with bouts of laughter. Athletes in top shape show off their muscle control as they torte
their bodies and effortlessly pose in positions that seem only possible in paintings and drawings.
If you haven’t seen the show, the next time you head to Vegas put it on your must-see list!
