In A Nutshell

Wynn’s newest show, Awakening, has already wowed a massive audience with its combination of dramatic choreography, fantastical creatures, original musical score, and narration by none other than Anthony Hopkins.

Show Length / Time Needed

80 minutes

Discount Tickets & Promo Codes

Tickets starting at $79 USD + fees

PRO TIP: We actually bought our tickets on and were surprised to find that the tickets (and the Ticketmaster fees) were cheaper than buying direct, even though Wynn was having a Late Night Show sale. We got seats in the Sapphire Level for about $30 cheaper than buying through Wynn/Ticketmaster. Plus, our view was amazing — since it’s a relatively intimate, circular theater, there’s no need to splurge for front-row seats.

What You Need To Know

Our Take

If you EVERRRR find yourself in Vegas, don’t bother with any other shows. Awakening is THE BEST THING TO HIT VEGAS. Yes, even better than The Sphere.

Expect quite the variety show — there’s dancing, graceful aerialist acts, acrobatics, magic, drama, comedy, singing, acting, lights/lasers, and crazy good production value, but best of all… amazing costuming.

So much fantasy! So many mermaids — so many lights! The whole thing was absolutely spectacular. If you love fantasy and colors, this show is a must.

I rated it a 20 out of 10 because it was so jaw-droppingly good. I’m also trying to make anyone and everyone I know experience this for themselves!

NOTE: Apparently, the original version of the show was a bit slow and ‘just okay’ (our Vegas-based friends watched this version when it first came out). The new and improved version (the one that we personally saw) was AMAZING. A must-watch that very likely beats most other shows in Vegas!

Show Description / What To Expect

Awakening Wynn Las Vegas
One of my favorite scenes of the entire production — the underwater scene!

Set inside the most technologically advanced theater in the world, Awakening is Wynn’s brand-new spectacular production that will have you gasping in awe and delight with its dazzling visuals, compelling narrative, and a touch of lighthearted comedy.

The show unfolds on a 60-foot, 360-degree prismatic stage—an architectural wonder that undulates and expands with the movements of the characters. This immersive setup takes the audience on a journey where the boundaries between fantasy and reality blur.

At the core of Awakening is a hero’s quest to confront the forces of Light and Darkness. The red-headed protagonist, known as IO, encounters a colorful (and super well-dressed) cast of characters, both human and fantastical, as she navigates the challenges that unfold in her mission to reunite opposing forces and save the world.

The show is a collaborative masterpiece conceived by entertainment legends — Bernie Yuman, Baz Halpin, and Michael Curry have crafted a production that will blow everything else you’ve seen out of the water, seriously!

Renowned for his work on The Lion King on Broadway, Michael Curry introduces larger-than-life puppets that spring to life around the audience with their heroic scale and lifelike movements.

Anthony Hopkins narrates the storyline, too! Amid the grand narrative, comedic moments provided by characters like Boo and Bandit bring a touch of humor and friendship to the storyline.

Awakening at Wynn Las Vegas promises to be a transformative theater experience, where cutting-edge technology meets creative brilliance. Truly, this is a must-see Las Vegas show!
