LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Wynn Las Vegas has introduced a brand-new show, Awakening, set to open November 7 within the custom-designed 360-degree Awakening Theater. Tickets are on sale now.
“Every so often, the bar for spectacle in Las Vegas is raised,” stated Craig Billings, CEO of Wynn Resorts. “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’m deeply happy with the group that has so fastidiously crafted this one-of-a-kind expertise.”
The show was created by Bernie Yuman, Baz Halpin, and Michael Curry. It is narrated by Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins.
The show tells the search of a heroine and her two fellow vacationers as they search to reunite lost lovers. The show will come to life by means of a mix of dramatic choreography, technology, incredible creatures, and a wide ranging authentic musical rating.
“I’ve been fortunate to work with many of the greatest artists in the live entertainment space, but with Awakening I had the opportunity to explore completely new territory,” stated Baz Halpin, Producer, and Director of Awakening. “I’ve always been 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.”
Awakening premieres at Wynn Las Vegas on Monday, November 7. Showtimes will likely be at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Tuesday by means of Saturday.
