Awakening – an unparalleled new show experience

Wynn Las Vegas introduces a new era of entertainment when the resort premieres Awakening on Nov. 7, 2022. An unprecedented spectacle, Awakening immerses audiences in a custom-designed 360-degree theater, the Awakening Theater. The show is conceived and created by Bernie Yuman, Baz Halpin and Michael Curry, and narrated by two-time Academy Award-winner Anthony Hopkins.

Every so often, the bar for spectacle in Las Vegas is raised, and 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.

Awakening invites audiences to join the quest of a heroine and her two fellow travelers as they seek to reunite two lost lovers. Infused with modern day myth and magic, the show comes to life through a combination of dramatic choreography, technology, fantastic creatures, and a custom sound system designed to showcase its breathtaking original musical score.

People will be fascinated with the 360-experience and the intimacy that it creates between the audience and performers. It allows for a level of immersivity that brings the theatrical experience to life. Our theater at Wynn has afforded us the ability to create something unlike anything else in entertainment. Awakening is a Las Vegas spectacle on an epic scale.

The theater features 1,600 seats, each within 75 feet of center stage and equipped with a sound system that envelops audiences through WynnSonic featuring PHBX Technology – a technology that creates 3D sound. Elaborate set designs are showcased as the journey unfolds across a 60-foot prismatic stage, made of dichroic glass and custom LED screens. More than 300 costumes, inspired by haute couture, bring the five unique and visceral worlds of Awakening to life.

Awakening promises to be an adventure of spectacular proportions by redefining the Vegas spectacle and will bring technology in entertainment into the 21st Century with the help of groundbreaking collaborative effort between Wynn Las Vegas and the creative team. It promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for anyone fortunate enough to see it.

This show makes it possible for people to escape into a world that pushes the boundaries of entertainment. 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.

Awakening at Wynn Las Vegas premieres on Monday, November 7. Tickets are on sale now and available at Showtimes are 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., Tuesday-Saturday.
