    Opening Day
    Esplanade - Theatre on the Bay opens on 12 October 2002. Come celebrate this historic day with us!

    Fiesta!
    A rousing carnival along Esplanade Waterfront to welcome everyone to Singapore's new performing arts centre. Esplanade Waterfront and Marina Promenade @ 5pm-10:15pm

    Official Opening Ceremony
    Espalanade will be officially opened by President SR Nathan. Esplanade Forecourt @ 7:30pm-7:45pm

    Harbour Spectacular
    The celebrations culminate with a scintillating 30-minute show inspired by the space around Esplanade. This unique performance brings together a host of artists including abseiling acrobats, Legs on the Wall from Australia (on Maybank Tower), Canadian company Theatre de la Dame de Coeur, known for its imaginative giant puppets, and Groupe F from France, creators of the millenium fireworks on the Eiffel Tower. The pyrotechnics of these "sculptors of light" illuminate the unfolding story, including choreographed bumboats on the waters of Marina Bay. A fitting finale to a memorable night. Marina Bay @ 10:15pm-10:45pm

    Waterfront Party
    Party on till the early morning at the waterfront. Marina Promenade @ 10:45pm-1am

    ah good the definitive version!
    how many going into the place and how many shooting outside the place?
    cos the fireworks will be best viewed across the bay at the grass park, but the action will be at the durian side itself... LOL charter a bumboat?

    Any mention/sugesstion/hint/etc where the fireworks will be shot from?

    Thanks.
    If they are using the same people who do the Sydney Harbour shows, then barges in the bay for the big ones, the bridge, nearby buildings, etc for smaller 'effect' displays.

    The Sydney fireworks displays were starting to get a bit ridiculous - each year they had to be bigger than before, etc.. And they have pretty well run out of new 'wow' effects, so they were just making the show longer, with nothing other than a lot of rubbish on the ground afterwards to show for it...

    (And not just rubbish from the spectators - all those star burst shells had to land somewhere....)

    I think the 'claim to fame' for the Sydney people was using multple barges in the harbour, with radio firing controls to keep the barges in sync. You can't run wires out to a barge moored in the middle of an active harbour...

    Good idea! Will also ask some press guys to stand by.
    Oh boy! What a show! I think we may make it bigger than the Sept 11 breakout.
