One of our bucket list items was to see a show by Cirque de Soleil. There has always been so much hype around Cirque, that I wasn’t sure it could live up to my expectations. On our trip to Las Vegas we made a point to see a show, despite the price. The three I wanted to see were 1. KÀ 2. Mystère & 3. O KÀ and O were ridiculously (or so I thought at the time) expensive, so that left Mystère as the reasonably priced option. In total we paid $180 with taxes and charges for two tickets. I’m so happy to say that it was worth every single cent!
Every seat in the theatre was great, but ours were especially so. Middle tier, just off centre, it was perfect. I was absolutely enthralled and in awe for the entire 90 minutes. It was surprising, engaging, funny, shocking and amazing. It was by far the coolest thing either one of us has ever seen. Early on I stopped seeing the entertainers as human, but more as characters, like in a movie, where nothing bad could happen. They seemed invincible to my eye. Along with acrobats, trapeze artists, gymnasts and actors there was a live 5 (I think) piece band playing all the music and two singers to provide to vocals. The show was incredible. Such talent!
Unfortunately we were not permitted to take pictures inside the theatre, which I understand. So I snapped just one on the sly. It’s not the greatest, but it’s a good enough reminder for me!
We left the show awe struck, and the feeling hasn’t left. I want to go back to Las Vegas just to see the other two shows! (There are currently eight Cirque shows playing in Las Vegas currently.) If you have any inclination toward seeing a Cirque de Soleil show I urge you to do it, you won’t regret it! Don’t worry about the money, it’ll be worth it.
