Best known for turning up the heat in the kitchen and making even the biggest of the “cheftastic” boys and girls melt into a puddle of hot molten mess, award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay surprised his family with tickets to one of Las Vegas’ most exciting shows, the world famous Mystère by Cirque du Soleil this weekend. The critically acclaimed chef and his clan arrived at the theatre all smiles, where they enjoyed their last night in Vegas with some of the greatest acrobatic performers in the world.
Directed by Franco Dragone, the show is an amalgamation of athleticism, super-charged acrobatics with a heaping side-order of ephemeral imagery evoking the true essence of the creative spirit that has come to be expected from audiences and die-hard Cirque fans from around the world.
With a rich history on the Las Vegas Strip, the show has been called a theatrical “flower in the desert,” inspiring a sense of magic and artistry for generations of Cirque lovers. Offering an array of intriguing talent and storyline, Mystère has an uncanny and breathtaking ability to weave a tapestry of the unexpected, as the cast filled with supernova talent from across the globe brings heaven to earth in a ongoing cacophony of joyful noise.
Presented exclusively at Treasure Island, Mystère provides the ultimate discovery that life itself is a mystery.
Honored eight times as “Best Production Show” by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Mystère has an international cast of 75 performers featuring dancers, singers, musicians and champion-caliber acrobats.
Ramsey and family devoured the performance and after the show, the family joined the cast backstage and shared some love and a few photo opportunities, with Ramsay himself calling the production absolutely “brilliant.” Amazed by the artists’ impeccable skills, the kids seemed equally mesmerized and chatted non-stop, saying we “can’t believe the artists do that twice a night!” The cast happily took soaked up the praise like gravy and side of biscuits and posed for a few more photos with the Ramsay family to commemorate the unforgettable experience.
Later this week, artists from Mystère join Chef Ramsay and his family as they film a special segment for season two of “Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch.”
