‘Awakening’ set to premiere at Wynn Las Vegas: Travel Weekly

“Awakening”, a production that promises to dazzle audiences in Wynn Las Vegas‘ distinctive 360-degree theater, will open on November 7th.

The voice of two-time Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins will tell the story of a journey of the story’s heroine and her two traveling companions as they seek to reunite two lost lovers. The show will feature creatures brought to life by detailed choreography and the latest theatrical technology.

Bernie Yuman, Baz Halpin and Michael Curry designed and created the show. Yuman, the executive producer, has credits that include Siegfried & Roy’s 25-year run in Las Vegas and “On Your Feet” on Broadway. Director Halpin has produced, directed and engineered concerts for stars including Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Tina Turner. Character designer Curry is best known for his work on “The Lion King” on Broadway.

The show will take place in the same 1,600-seat theater that housed “Le Rêve”, which closed at the start of the pandemic and never reopened. But it won’t have the water-based step that this production was known for.

Each “Awakening” seat is within 75 feet of the center of the stage. The 60-foot prism-shaped stage is made up of custom LED displays and glass that appear to be different colors when viewed from different directions. More than 300 costumes bring the five worlds of “Awakening” to life.

“The puppets and drawings speak to the magnitude of ‘awakening’ as each scene takes the unbelievable and makes it real,” Curry said. “The transformation scene acts like a character itself, allowing for vast changes – from making viewers feel like they’re submerged underwater to floating in a world in the clouds. These worlds come to life with characters and imaginative creatures like never before.”

“Awakening” tickets starting at $115 plus taxes and fees and are on sale now. Sessions are at 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
