PictureLe Reve performs at the Wynn Theater.
LE RÊVE, French for "the dream", is the perfect name for the water and acrobatic performance featured at the Wynn hotel and casino in Las Vegas!  The show's plot is simple: A young woman must decide her answer to a marriage proposal.  She falls asleep and as she dreams her thoughts take her to a colorful world filled with mythical creatures, stunning sights, and passionate emotions - all of which reveal her inner struggle.

LE RÊVE is distinctly different from other Vegas shows because the actors (or should I say, athletes?!) perform on a moving stage in a pool of water.  The technical side of the show is absolutely mind-boggling.  A team of scuba divers are under the stage directing traffic, helping the actors, and sending up props.  Actors all have diving experience and must breathe through regulators sometimes when waiting underwater for their cues.  You can learn more about the show's technical side here:
LE RÊVE is a show you could watch a hundred times and still find something new and interesting you didn't notice before!  There is so much happening all at once!  You want to keep your eyes on the endearing water sprite character, but then your eyes dart over to catch someone's backflip and then you're entranced by a flock of angels that just dropped from the ceiling!  I sat in shocked silence. I laughed. I cried. I almost fainted at one point because of a dangerous stunt!  It truly is the best show in Las Vegas and it is well worth the ticket price.  Go see it!

Photography (without flash) is allowed during the performance.  Below you'll find some photos my husband took during the show we saw on January 16, 2015.  Which one do you like best?  Are there other Vegas shows you recommend?  Write me a comment in the space below!

Safe travels and happy flying!

Will you marry me? = The show's driving question.

We were so close to the stage! The theater is circular so every seat is a good seat!

I want those red shoes!

These suit-clad gentlemen were the "clowns" of the show and they were hilarious!

It was easy to forget you were sitting in a crowded theater because the lights would hide audience.

The timing has to be perfect or he could sit another swimmer.

You can't tell, but this globe is twirling around and there is NO safety net, just water below.

See diver? See water? I wasn't sure if this stunt was going to work, but he made it!

That show does sound neat! I'll have to keep that in mind when we visit Vegas someday. The fourth picture from the bottom caught my attention as it shows a lot of leaps and dives all at once just like you described. I'm impressed that your husband's camera could take the detail of those pictures in the low-light conditions. Thanks for the tip!

It looks like a really cool show. If we ever end up in Vegas, I think I'll want to see that one. And amazing pictures!
