Even if you get covered in popcorn, you won't want to stop the clown from posing as an usher and engaging in some pre-show debauchery with the crowd. With his black suit and disheveled gray hair, he has no problem amusing people. The clown is zany, mischievous and your first exposure to the unknown at Mystère by Cirque du Soleil at Treasure Island. What's ahead is a wondrous world of mystifying creatures who perform a series of incredible acrobatic and gymnastic feats.When Mystère opened in 1993, the show was the first Cirque du Soleil production in Vegas. Emphasizing awe-inspiring athleticism and imaginative imagery, it embraces all of the signature Cirque du Soleil elements that have made the production company a mainstay on the Las Vegas Strip.From rebirth to the pursuit of happiness, each of the characters and acts in Mystère symbolizes something different. They combine to create an overall theme for the show as a celebration of the circle of life. Some audience members may interpret each act as an allegory, but with the innovative costumes and performances, realizing those themes isn't necessary for enjoying this show.What makes Mystère so endearing is that many of the performances are typical circus-style acts like the flying trapeze, an aerialist and the teeterboard, an acrobatic tool where a person jumps on one end of what looks like a seesaw and the person on the other end is launched into the air. However, in Mystère, the boundaries of those disciplines are pushed, creating fantastical routines that you won't see in any other production.For instance, in the hand-to-hand routine, two muscular men demonstrate a series of gravity-defying poses and their incredible strength, but they don't even perform on a flat surface. In Mystère, the men do this while balancing on a rotating dome, adding to the awesomeness of their routine.The Tissu act is another example. In this routine a female aerialist performs while suspending herself with two pieces of fabric hanging from the ceiling. This type of act can be seen in other shows on the Strip, but in Mystère the performer combines contortion, acrobatics and movement in her routine, creating optical illusions that defy imagination.Music played by live musicians and singers drives the show. Mixing elements of everything from rock to Celtic, African and soul music, the soundtrack is just as mysterious as the action on stage.Along with awe-inspiring moments, Mystère offers a hearty does of comedy brought on by the clown "usher" and an adult-sized baby. They appear on stage throughout the show. The clown and baby don’t tell jokes, but their wacky antics and interactions with the audience make people laugh. It's hard not to chuckle when you see a man on stage wearing a diaper and a bonnet.When the comedy segments come to a close, the show quickly changes pace. Once again the audience is sitting in amazement at another thrilling routine. One of these is the Chinese Poles. For this act a group of gymnasts perform on four vertical poles. They crawl, jump and flip up, down and across the poles. Their masks add to the implausibility of their performance. While their bodies face away from the audience, their masks are looking right at them. It seems impossible, but then again, this is Mystère.-- By Caroline Fontein

My wife enjoyed, but I got bored!
PostedMarch 9, 2013
This is the first Cirque Soliel we have seen in Vegas. The show was reasonable. We enjoyed the acrobatics. However, almost two hours was just too long in my opinion. I was bored after the first hour. It was nothing spectular about the acrobatics. We saw Le Reve the last time we were in Vegas. Although, not a Cirque Soliel product, it was definitely much better acrobatics and story line.

World-renowned singer Celine Dion is returning to Las Vegas to bring her fans an incredible concert experience during her residency at The Colosseum.Directed by famed Grammy Awards producer Ken Ehrlich, Dion's revamped Vegas show has implemented some slight changes but the star's biggest hits and timeless classics remain the highlight of the production -- that is, or course, when you're not awestruck by her assortment of dazzling gowns.  Catch Celine Dion perform her repertoire of hits mixed with timeless classics that pay tribute to some of the most celebrated songs of all time in her residency show at Caesars Palace.Accompanied by an on-stage orchestra throughout the concert, Dion demonstrates her otherworldly, five-octave vocal range with moving ballads and extra production elements of a moving stage that evolves with song-tailored video and light displays to create an amazing audio and visual experience for the audience.Returning this summer after what will be a year-long break from performing, guests can expect a refreshed and sophisticated production that showcases talent in the highest, in addition to the genuine passion and love that Dion has harbored for her profession and her fans over the years. Don't miss your chance to experience this five-time Grammy Award winning singing sensation back in action at The Colosseum in Las Vegas.

A show worth remembering!
PostedMarch 9, 2013
This was the first time my wife and I had seen Celine Dion in a live performance. The show was worth every penny we spent. We did not know or realize what a range of songs Ms. Dion can do. She was very soulful and the lyrics were understandable. We were surprised when Celine did Adel's hit song so perfectly we thought it was Adel singing. The house was just about full. I must say this was one of the best concerts we've seen in Vegas. It was very well done. The music kept you on the edge of your seat. Celine got a standing ovation. We even saw a group of young teenage girls kissing Celine's picture and saying they loved her after the show in the Mall at Ceasars. It was definitely a night to remember!

What is included in the drinks package?

Hi, I'm looking at booking tickets to Celine in August and was wondering what drinks are included in the seat and drinks package. Thanks
None. The show was well worth it however. You can buy drinks and popcorn in the theatre. We highly recommend this show. Celine is fabulous.
