CIRQUE PLANTS A FLOWER IN THE DESERT

Having seen Cirque du Soleil in action, and following Nouvelle Expérience's successful run, the president of Mirage Resorts in Las Vegas (Steve Wynn) makes an offer: why not bring Cirque du Soleil to a permanent installation in Las Vegas? Cirque responds to the challenge of staging a show outside the traditional big top and resolves, in its own words, to "plant a flower in the desert."

On Christmas Day, Mystère premieres at the Treasure Island hotel in Las Vegas, setting a new standard and changing the way live entertainment is presented in Las Vegas. Mystère's message is universal because movement, music and humor are universal. Mystère is so richly diverse that it can be experienced over and over again, every performance revealing something new and extraordinary. Be obnoxious. Be stupid. Be sweet. Be nasty. Be masculine, feminine, and androgynous. Be amazing. Not only was the show a sellout within 10 days of opening, Mystère recouped its investment in six months.

By year's end Saltimbanco completes its 19-month North American Tour of a dozen cities and receives resounding ovations from 1.4 million (1,416,359) spectators.
