On a relatively cool Las Vegas winters eve in 1993, patrons, fans and the curious alike assembled on the Las Vegas Strip to take part in something new and extraordinary: the birth of a new creation from Cirque du Soleil. While today an event such as this is considered less than phenomenal (there are now multiple Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas for instance), on this cool December evening however, these spectators were witnessing something untried - the unveiling of a new concept. Rather than travel and be presented under the Grand Chapiteau (as all other previous Cirque du Soleil shows had done), this new creation would instead bow within a specially constructed theater built for its purpose alone inside one of the newest casino-hotels on the Las Vegas Strip – Steve Wynn’s Treasure Island. It would turn out to be unlike anything that had ever been seen before from this Montrèal-based circus troupe and it would usher in a brand new era for Cirque du Soleil, Las Vegas, and production arts as a whole.

A Mountain Tale
      "With Mystère, we were out of the big top for the first time, and into the intimate surroundings of a theatre. We met the challenge by creating a different style of performance: this time, the show became a series of large, living frescoes." - Gilles Ste-Croix (Spectaculara)

    What brought Cirque du Soleil to this place in time? And what were they about to give birth to? For Mystère, we look to the history of Cirque du Soleil to provide those answers, and in doing so revisit the innovative and imaginative Nouvelle Expérience. “At the end of the 1980s, we were presenting a show called Nouvelle Expérience, and were approached by Caesar’s Palace organization to mount a show there, to be presented in a theater in 1991,” said Gilles Ste-Croix in an interview for the Spectaculara section of Cirque du Soleil’s website. “We put together the concept for a show with a mythological theme, which seemed appropriate,” but it didn’t go as planned.
