Mystère by Cirque du Soleil is a tour-de-force showcasing a live-action fantasy that is designed to enthrall and excite one's imagination. Like with many other Las Vegas shows, it is described in terms of superlatives. What's amazing about it is that it it's all done live. Some of the characters include Les Epouvantables, two enormous babies processing the world around them; Desexmachina, a machine that regulates the existence of all things and inevitably grinding down the individual; the archangels, who are the guardians of happiness; Inti X and Inti Y, viruses who are ready to infect everyone; the Tribe, who are the primitive ghosts and modern humanity; and others such as the Asticots, the Black Virgin, the Firebird, Stats and Mephisto. These characters give an idea of the weirdness that you can expect when you see this show. This show is a must-see if you are in Las Vegas - it is playing at the Treasure Island.
