So, the Marina Bay Sands’ water & light show has been under renovation for a couple of months and I was one of those people who has been checking when it is going to re-open. I heard that they are working for a new show and I was really excited about it. I came to Singapore on 2012 and the show has always been the same. But it is still one of the my favorite place to hang out and I do not mind going alone even for the hundredth time. I also always recommend it to my friends who are visiting in Singapore especially it is a free-to-public outdoor light & water show displayed over the water at the Event Plaza along the promenade.
The new permanent light and water show is named ‘Spectra’. It was unveiled last night, 2 June 2017, at 8pm to steer a new era of entertainment. As expected, the 15-minute show is really mesmerizing with its dancing water fountains, colorful visual arts, inspiring orchestral soundtrack and special lighting effects. I was not really able to focus much on the show because I was busy taking photos and videos around. I will come again for that. It is said that it reflects Singapore’s journey as a multicultural society into the cosmopolitan city she is today, with each of the 4 acts seamlessly flowing into the next.
Below is a sneak peek on some parts of the different acts. Unfortunately, I have not taken a full video of the show because my phone memory suddenly got full 😦
(Opens 2 June)
Sunday – Thursday – 8pm & 9pm
Friday & Saturday – 8pm, 9pm and 10pm
Now that it just re-opened and if you are planning to catch the show, you have to expect a flock of people. It would be better if you can come earlier before the show time and save yourself a good spot.
Along with the Spectra’s opening was also a public launch of the second installment of Open Stage. It is said to be another initiative by Marina Bay Sands to nurture up-and-coming local music acts. There will be free quarterly concert series that will feature brightest talents in music from Singapore and the Southeast Asian region.
Both events, which will take place at the Event Plaza, with Open Stage starting at 7:15pm, followed by the light at water show at 8.00pm.
I hope you enjoyed this article. Bring your family and friends and be enthralled in the visually stunning world of ‘Spectra’ with the ‘Open Stage’ music indulgence! (:
