Wynn Vegas shows offer something far away from ordinary; creativity flows free with the inviting shows at Wynn. While the schedule of events may not be as busy as some of the other Las Vegas resorts, the Wynn’s shows more than make up for it in quality. Both indoor and out, the show venues are worth spending some of your valuable time—places where imaginations are piqued and hearts are warmed.
Le Reve – The Dream
Wynn Vegas Shows - Le Reve
Named for the French word for “dream,” Cirque du Soleil’s Le Reve (pictured) ushers the audiences in a warm, inviting wonderland. No seat in the theater is farther than 40 feet away from Le Reve’s stage. The first production at the Wynn, Le Reve debuted in 2005, directed by Dragone, the impresario behind O, and other Cirque blockbusters. Inspired by Pablo Picasso painting, the show matches the great painter’s color scheme and abstract nature. The Aqua Theater, with 1,606 plush seats, features a 1.1-million-gallon pool and state-of-the-art acoustics. It also has a ring of flat screens that rotate atmospheric elements, such as birds flying by or rain drops falling. Upgraded seats in the Champagne Circle include even more comfortable seats, a complimentary bottle of Champagne, and chocolate-covered strawberries to go with monitors that provide a peek behind the scenes. The show plays Friday through Tuesday, and the theater is dark on Monday.
Another of the crowd-pleasing Wynn Las Vegas shows, country legend Garth Brooks plays to many of his happy fans at the Encore Theater. The intimate theater is the perfect venue for the crooner to play his top hits and thoughtful ballads. Brooks first took the stage in 2009 to great acclaim and still plays occasional shows at the Encore Resort.
Lake of Dreams
Lake of Dreams
Imaginative, stunning, and a must-see, the Lake of Dreams is like nothing else along the Las Vegas Strip. Crowned by a 40-foot waterfall and surrounded by lush forests, the 40-acre lake feels a million miles away from the ordinary. Each night, Lake of Dreams hosts eight light-and-water shows, which begin on the half hour between 8:30 p.m. and 1 a.m. The shows are free to enjoy, and many of the Wynn restaurants overlook the lake.
