Wynn Las Vegas is taking entertainment to the next level with an unparalleled show experience, Awakening

Conceived and created by Bernie Yuman, Baz Halpin and Michael Curry, and narrated by two-time Academy Award-winner Anthony Hopkins, Awakening takes audiences along on the quest of a heroine and her two fellow travelers as they seek to reunite two lost lovers in the custom-designed, 360-degree Awakening theater.

Awakening will redefine the Vegas spectacle and will bring technology in entertainment into the 21st Century,” says Awakening Executive Producer Bernie Yuman.This is a groundbreaking collaborative effort between Wynn Las Vegas and our creative team in the entertainment capital of the world. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for anyone fortunate enough to see it.”

The spectacular modern day mythical adventure unfolds across a 60-foot prismatic stage made of dichroic glass and custom LED screens, which comes to life through elaborate set designs and a combination of dramatic choreography, technology, fantastic creatures and a custom sound system designed to showcase Awakening’s breathtaking original musical score. 

“This show makes it possible for people to escape into a world that pushes the boundaries of entertainment,” says Awakening Producer and Character Designer Michael Curry. “The puppetry and designs speak to the magnitude of Awakening as every scene takes the unbelievable and makes it real. The transformational stage acts as a character itself, allowing vast changes—from giving viewers the impression that they are submerged underwater to floating in a world in the clouds. These worlds come to life with imaginative characters and creatures unlike anything audiences have seen before.”

With 1,600 seats each within 75 feet of the center stage and 3D sound technology, the custom-designed theater provides a 360-degree immersive experience, creating an intimate live entertainment space for audiences. 

“Every so often, the bar for spectacle in Las Vegas is raised,” says Wynn Resorts CEO Craig Billings. “State of the art lighting, sound, and stage technology, coupled with intricate storytelling, glamorous costumes, and large-scale puppetry will make Awakening and the Awakening Theater stand out as true innovation in theatrical entertainment and raise that bar for Las Vegas, once again. I am deeply proud of the team that has so carefully crafted this one-of-a-kind experience.”
