Famous for their jaw-dropping, acrobatic performances, Cirque du Soleil ‘s production of Le Reve, performed at the aquatic theater in the round at Wynn Resort in Las Vegas, certainly lives up to its name. “Le Reve,” or “The Dream,” is a spectacular production that transports the viewer from one universe to another.

The sheer logistics are staggering. With only 12 rows of seats in the 2086 seat theater and not a bad seat in the house, the audience is always close to the action.

I’m always fascinated by the “inside story” of what it takes to put on such a production.

The center stage rises, but can also be submerged 22 feet under water in the 1.1 million gallon pool that’s always kept at 89 degrees.

The video details some of the logistical challenges of the production, whether it’s the coordination of 85 technicians whose job it is to repair the aquatic costumes mid show, to the communications during the show. I think you will find it fascinating.

NOTE

 

Try to get VIP tickets to Le Reve. You will sip champagne, eat chocolate covered strawberries and watch what’s going on below the water, on stage and above the stage throughout the performance on your own video screen.
