Wynn Las Vegas’ water-based spectacle Le Rêve (The Dream) certainly lives up to its name. While watching one can’t help but feel as though you have entered an alternate and utterly imaginative universe.
The entertainment begins even before the curtain goes up as four comedians decked out in white tuxedos travel round the theater performing antics and revving up the audience. The show itself features aerial acrobatics and provocative choreography; while the performers convey artistic athleticism and perfect timing you can’t help but marvel at. A dramatic and engrossing soundtrack draws audiences further into the spectacle. Elaborate special effects complete this world of fantasy and intrigue. Created by Franco Dragone, the production conveys his signature brand of visually striking and original entertainment.
The stage for this spectacle is an intimate, aqua theater in-the-round. The theater, having undergone a complete redesign, just reopened April 5, 2007 and further enhances the dream-like setting of the performance.
The redesign of the Le Rêve Theater started minutes after the last show on March 5 and took over 200 workers and 30 days to complete. Designed by Mark Fisher and Roger Thomas, the extensive project included repainting the theater, recovering the walls, installing entirely new custom-made seating and flooring and creating the exclusive Champagne Circle area.
The theater went from 2087 seats to 1606, in order to provide additional room and a more intimate theatrical experience for guests. It also features large screens throughout whose content helps to enhance the mood of the production. The new surroundings are inviting with rhythmic decorative flourishes inspired by Art Nouveau floral motifs. Consistent with the theme of elegance and style the theater also features luxe fabrics, plush chairs and a warm blend of cocoa, bronze and deep reds. The theater now also offers more seating choices for its guests. Those who crave the ultimate in luxury can opt for the new VIP Indulgence Package. The package offers a complimentary Perrier-Jouët champagne bottle service, chocolate covered strawberries, generously-scaled lounge seating with plenty of leg room and video monitors which provide unique behind-the-scenes, underwater as well as above-water views during the show. Package holders will also benefit from a “Privileged Access” pass for dining and entertainment on the day of the performance. With the combination of theater redesign and the inherent nature of Le Rêve, Wynn Las Vegas has redefined both the traditional theatrical experience as well as the place in which it occurs. The theater and performance create an intimate setting that allows the audience to escape reality and let their imagination lead the way. If you have yet to see the Le Rêve put it at the top of your list. And if you have already enjoyed the spectacle, return again for a whole new experience.
Ticket prices are $99 (Splash Zone), $119 (Premium Seating) and $159 (VIP Indulgence Package). The new show schedule is 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, Monday and Thursday; 8:30 p.m. on Friday; and 8:00 p.m. and 10:30 on Saturday.
