    Mystère is a Cirque du Soleil show in constant residence at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is one of six resident Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas.

The seats that did require you to walk up only a few steps had lit up wide walkways with handrails. The seats were spacious and did not feel cramped. There were also “no bad seats in the room,” according to the box office employees. Valet brought you right…
