The inside word is the popular show at Wynn Las Vegas, “Le Reve,” will close permanently.
“Le Reve” is water-based, Cirque-style show (no association with Cirque du Soleil) and has been closed for several months due to the COVID-19 crisis.
We quite enjoyed “Le Reve,” and the closure of the show is yet another blow to the Las Vegas entertainment community.
“Le Reve” means “The Dream” in French, but the COVID-19 crisis has become a nightmare for Las Vegas theatrical productions, including their casts and crews.
The show employed about 90 performers (all SCUBA-qualified) prior to the shutdown, as well as 140 technical staff members, including a team of about 16 divers (who spent the entire show submerged).
The “Le Reve” theater features a 1.1 million gallon water tank.
“Le Reve” opened at Wynn Las Vegas in May 2005, but it’s been “re-imagined” a time or two since then.
The future of the $75 million “Le Reve” theater space is, well, fluid.
Here’s a look at “Le Reve” in 2015.
