LEGENDA SINGAPURA: A BUMBOAT EXTRAVAGANZA BY SINGAPORE RIVER CRUISES WATER & LAND SPECTACLE
Fri & Sat, 19 & 20 Sep, 7pm / 21, 26-28 Sep, 8pm
Boat Parade begins half an hour before the performance <<< TAKE NOTE <<<<<
The history of the Singapore River is rich in exotic tales and fables and Legenda Singapura (Legend of Singapore) will transport spectators back in time to the period of the royal court of Sang Nila Utama, his journey to Singapore and his landing at the mouth of the river.
Witness this historic performance as the ‘royal regatta’ and its entourage cruise along the Singapore River from Robertson Quay to Clarke Quay, Boat Quay and then back to Central before embarking on an hour-long journey of music, dance and puppetry, showcasing Singapore River’s colourful heritage and its transformation into a modern metropolis. The journey continues thereafter to Robertson Quay.
This first-ever float parade on the river will see the return of six of Singapore’s traditional bumboats decked out for this visually spectacular dance drama. Presented by Singapore River Cruises & Leisure Pte Ltd and produced by Splash Entertainment, this extravaganza will showcase award-winning homegrown creative and artistic talents.
