“Awakening” Will Open Your Eyes

“Awakening” is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that includes everything you could want in a Vegas show. Performed in its own spectacular custom-built theater at Wynn Las Vegas, the show features majestic costumes, exciting dance choreography, and breathtaking illusions.

“Awakening” is narrated by the voice of Anthony Hopkins, adding to the show’s sense of mystery and wonder. You’ll follow the adventures of the charming heroine and her 2 friends on a quest to restore beauty and love to the world. Along the way you’ll be immersed in the worlds they pass through, from below the sea to high in the sky.

This show is the result of a collaboration between some of the most brilliant creative minds in the world, with every aspect of the show headed by a world-famous name in their craft. There’s puppetry from the visionary character director of Broadway’s “The Lion King”, costumes designed by a top celebrity stylist, and illusions designed by a master magician.


The Stage Will Transform You

Perhaps the most breathtaking feature of “Awakening” is the theater it performs in, which was custom designed from top to bottom especially for this show. From the moment you walk into the space, you’ll realize that what you’re about to see is going to be magnificent.

The 360 degree theater puts the audience all around the performance, meaning the show is completely different depending on what seats you have and what night you attend. At the center of the theater, an elaborate stage features sections that raise and lower throughout the show. The glass floor of the stage allows for intricate lighting effects that come from above and below.

The show becomes an immersive experience in this performance space, transporting you to the different realms that the characters visit. Master illusionist Paul Kieve says of the show, “it surely must be the most technically advanced show on the planet”.

The Brilliant Minds Behind “Awakening”

“Awakening” is brought to you by some of the most creative minds in entertainment today. You might not know their names, but they’re behind some iconic moments in entertainment that you’d have to live under a rug to not recognize.


Baz Halpin – Creative Director and Producer

The genius mind behind spectaculars ranging from legendary halftime shows to the world stadium tours of superstars, Baz Halpin has an eye for what makes a show magic. He creatively directed performances for some of the hottest artists in the world, including Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Pink. He says of this show: “With Awakening I had the opportunity to explore completely new territory”.

Michael Curry – Creative Director and Character Director

If you loved the puppetry that brought The Lion King to life on Broadway, you’ll be excited to know that the same creative force is behind the scenes of “Awakening”. Michael Curry specializes in huge productions like Olympic Games ceremonies and Disney extravaganzas. “This show makes it possible for people to escape into a world that pushes the boundaries of entertainment,” Curry says of this show.

Bernie Yuman – Executive Producer

Bernie is behind the record-breaking success of Siegfried and Roy’s 25 year engagement in Las Vegas, so he knows what he’s doing when it comes to show business. In a nutshell, he is one of the main reasons Vegas is known today as the Entertainment Capital of the World. He says that Awakening “will redefine the Vegas spectacle and bring technology in entertainment into the 21st century”.

Paul Kieve – Illusion Designer

Seeing a magic show while you’re in Vegas is almost essential, and “Awakening” checks that box, featuring magic by this world-renowned master of illusion. The Guardian calls Paul Kieve “The invisible Genius of British Theater”, and now he brings his craft to Vegas. “The main thing about my work,” Paul says, “is not the color of the prop or what material it’s built in – it’s whether people have that feeling of astonishment.”

Brian Tyler – Score Composer

The music in “Awakening” is an important part of creating that sense of wonder. In charge of the soundtrack is American composer Brian Tyler, who is known for his scores in movies, TV and video games. You might know his work from Marvel movies like “The Avengers – Age of Ultron” or “Thor – the Dark World”.

Soyon An – Costume Designer

Soyon An knows a thing or two about fashion. She dresses the rich and famous, acting as a stylist for superstars like Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Jennifer Lopez. She brings her award-winning costume design talent to “Awakening”, with dazzling costumes that, in her words, “should feel couture and runway”.


“Awakening” Is a Show You Can’t Miss
