Marco and Paolo Lorador, performers in the Cirque du Soleil show Mystère, wow audiences night after night with their physical feats of strength and balance.

The brothers are third-generation performers from Portugal who have been in the business for 30 years. "My father was in the circus, my grandfather, and before we knew it, we were born into it," Marco says.

In graceful, controlled movements, Marco does a handstand on his brother's outstretched hands, then maneuvers into a one-handed handstand on one of Paolo's hands.

Marco and Paolo keep their muscles toned by working out and performing 10 shows a week at Treasure Island Hotel and Resort in Las Vegas. "It's just beautiful to watch," Oprah says.
