    Cirque du Soleil pushed the pandemic reopening of “Mystere” up a few weeks. This was at the gentle behest (cough) of Treasure Island owner Phil Ruffin, acutely interested in bringing the show back ASAP to re-energize business at his hotel.

    So “Mystere” reopened alongside “O” in June 2021, the first two Cirque shows to perform in the COVID-19 relaunch. Wise move. “Mystere” has been cranking along with better-than-anticipated numbers ever since.

    The first Cirque resident production in Vegas celebrates its 13,000th performance Saturday night. That figure marks the most shows ever for a Cirque production, by a long shot. It’s a height even a planche artist can’t reach.
