Mystere by Cirque Du Soleil (Las Vegas)

The last time I watched Cirque Du Soleil must have been at least a good decade ago. So I totally had no recollection of their performance when I caught Mystere.

We decided to get the tickets for Mystere online because we were afraid that we won't be able to get tickets for the show. There are extra costs if you want to buy the tickets online with the option of either printing the ticket yourself or collecting it at the box office.

There are a few options you should consider when buying a ticket: 1) Buy it at the box office (without the extra charges) 2) Sign up online ahead of time on their website to know of any offers 3) Check the online website and click the "offers" tab- we got 35% off because of that 4) Visit the ticket station near MGM to check out any offers.

You might want to reach the theatre around 15 minutes earlier (assuming that you have got your tickets much earlier- the queues can get long) because there are some acts that start before the show. (Leave a comment if you would like me to spoil the fun as to what happens in the 15 minutes.)

The following photos are taken from their website because no photography is allowed in the theatre. My favourite three amongst the eight acts are the following: Bungee, Trampoline and Trapeze. A particularly act which I will not forget is the rather creepy cries of the man baby.

Overall, the experience was wonderful. Apparently, this is the cheapest of all the Cirque Du Soleil acts in Las Vegas, probably because it's the longest running one. But just because it is the cheapest doesn't mean it's the worst. I especially liked the fact that you could see the live orchestra/band. The performance were mostly high energy and the lighting was just perfect. They also break up an otherwise serious acrobatic act with random comic effects in between (by either the clown or the man baby). Just a tip, getting the cheapest tickets at the back does not mean that you are getting the worst seats. Considering that there are several aerial acts, I actually found the view at the back very good.

(p.s.They are performing in Singapore 26 July 2012 onwards. (Click here if you're interested in going for Saltibamco in Singapore.)
