So what's the appropriate way to tell your Mom that you love her on Mother's Day? Flowers? Candy?

Well, if you're someone who believes in grand gestures, then why not treat your Mother to her dream vacation to Las Vegas? Where you can then keep that dream theme by dropping by Wynn Las Vegas and catching a performance of this resort & casino's long-running show, "Le Rêve" ?

 "Le Rêve" - which means "The Dream" in French - is a very appropriate title for this aquatic spectacular. Audiences sit in a custom built theater-in-the-round. But instead of facing a stage, what you're looking down into is this million gallon water tank. Which the 87 performers who are featured in this surreal extravaganza enter in a variety of ways. With one particularly daring star making a splashy entrance by taking an 87-foot high dive.

Though "Le Rêve" had its world premiere on May of 2005, the staff at Wynn Las Vegas have made a real effort to keep this show fresh and focused. With an eye toward always giving guests of this resort & casino the best possible viewing experience. Not matter what the long-term costs to the Wynn might be.

With this in mind, "Le Rêve" 's theater-in-the-round recently underwent a pretty extreme makeover. With the folks at  Wynn Las Vegas actually taking seats out of this arena. As a direct result, though the "Le Rêve" 's theater seats 1,606 people per show ... Because of the reconfigured seating arrangement, no one is ever more than 12 rows back from the water. Which means that everyone who catches a performance of this aquatic extravaganza then has a primo view of the performers from a wide, plush, freshly-upholstered new seat.

And then when you factor in "Le Rêve"'s state-of-the-art lighting and in-theater water effects (which put those fountains out in from of the Bellagio to shame) ... Well, is any wonder that this show (which draws its inspiration from one of the rarer pieces in Steve Wynn's art collection. Which is this painting that Pablo Picasso did back in 1932 which shows a woman - who was rumored to be Picasso's  mistress at the time-asleep  in a chair) remains one of the more popular pieces of entertainment on the Strip?

What's that you say? Water leaves your Mother cold? Not to worry. We'll just show your Mom a little love by heading over to The Mirage. Where she can then catch a performance of Cirque du Soleil's Beatles-themed show, "LOVE"?

Once again, you're going to find yourself seated in a custom-built theatre. One that features the very best sound system in all of Las Vegas?

"And why is that important?," you ask. Because "LOVE" explores the musical legacy of The Beatles in a pretty unique way. Not by placing some Paul, John, George and Ringo soundalikes out on stage. But - rather - by building this show out of the master tapes from the Beatles' recording sessions which were done at Abbey Road Studios.

And to make sure that the 130 songs & vocal performances which are sampled during this show all sound terrific ... Well, the arena that "LOVE" is presented in may be the only theatre in Las Vegas that has more speakers (6,341 to be exact) than seats (2,013). In fact, to make sure that The Beatles have honestly never sounded better, each seat is fitted with three speakers, including two hidden in the headrest.

And then - when you combine this superior soundscape with the 65 performers onstage, not to mention those high definition video projectors that can throw 100-foot-tall digital, moving images up on the flats & scrims that can be found throughout the Mirage's theatre ... Is it any wonder that Beatles fans just love "LOVE."

By the way, if you'd like to make Mom's Las Vegas dream vacation even more special, you might want to consider signing up for the "Cirque Insider Access" package. This exclusive backstage experience allows a select number of guests to go behind-the-scenes at "LOVE." Where you'll then be able to peek into this  show's costume workshop as well as wander around in the wings. Depending on what's going on that show day, you may even get the chance to stroll across a high-up catwalk and then go check out the lighting & sound booths.

So if you want to make a really big splash, skip the candy & flowers this year and tell Mom that you want to take her on a dream vacation to Las Vegas this year. And if you'd like to check out some of the shows and/or the special experiences mentioned in today's article ... Well, I know some folks who can help you out with that.
