    Thanks for the info !!!

    I also had reservations about shooting on the first day because I expected the better shooting area to be barricaded off for invited guests and occupied by chairs etc.

    On top of that, afternoon 1pm and 4pm would have better light condition than shooting the evening 7pm performances.

    That's why I didn't go to any of the opening nites in previous years.

    I think the opening ceremony today (11 Jan) is mainly intended for invited guests and VIPs.

    Yes, Zen master. We are going to migrate to Vivocity for this New Year. Our old spot at Raffles City has now become a strange-looking artificial waterfall. I can't understand the attraction, but oh well, things change.

    Hey thanks for the info! Seems like show timings on weekdays and weekends are similar to past years. Maybe that's the reason why they didn't want to publish the timings.

    Not sure.

    From the information on Vivocity's adverts on The Straits Times Last Friday, seems to have shows on Mondays .....(unlike in the past where Mondays are rest/sight seeing day for the performaning troop).

    Apparently, no show this coming Wednesday leh. Fujian troop ends tomorrow but the next troop (河南 He Nan) starts on Thursday 17 Jan. It appears that the He Nan troop will also be performing on the same dates (except the first day) at Raffles City from 18 Jan Jan.

    Don't know which is the rest day for troops performaning at Vivocity and Raffles City .......

    I'm also going tomolo. Tripod not recommended as space is an impt factor for these type of stage events. If i can do it with my 70-200 f/4 handheld, then what do u think for a f/2.8?

    If I'm not wrong, tomorrow will be the last day of the Henan Arts Troupe ( 河南省歌舞剧院舞蹈团 ).

    Their performances were fantastic ..........dances were nice and the Shaolin little/young monks' martial art display was superb.

    I was there for the 4pm show last Saturday and was so entertained that I decided to remain at Vivocity for the 7pm show. However, unexpectedly, the 7pm show was less than 15 minutes compared to the 35 minutes for the earlier 4pm show.

    Disappointed, I left Vivocity and headed to Chinatown Light up at about 7.30pm. Unexpectedly, at about 8.30pm, the Henan Troupe dancers and Shaolin young monks performed there. The crowd was so entertained by the Shaolin young monks that many people clapped their hands after their performance, unlike their luke warm reaction to the other performances on that night.

    The Shaolin Young Monks performed a very long session at Chinatown lightup and no wonder the show at Vivocity was shortened so much earlier at 7pm.

    I haven't finished processing the pictures yet.

    My fave girl is the one 3rd from right . This 菊花台 performance is the best other than the Shaolin one.
