Sentosa’s ‘Songs of the Sea’ sings its swan song

Anyone who has ever been to Sentosa will recognise the nightly fountain spectacular called ‘Songs of the Sea’.

The show, which was designed by the team behind Beijing’s iconic 2008 Olympics ceremony is a heady combination of pyrotechnics, sweeping music and thrilling graphics.

While ‘Songs of the Sea’ has entertained almost 8.3 million people since March 2007, it will be closing down to make way for a brand new multi-sensory show come June 2014.


But before the show closes on 4 May, more than 5,000 half-price tickets will be given out via Sentosa’s Facebook page.


Along with the impressive effects, the show also has a live cast that entertains a crowd of 2,500 people with each full-house sitting.

The plot follows the main character, Li, and a multi-racial cast as they go on an underwater adventure.

“'Songs of the Sea’ is like a 30-minute pit-stop of Singapore culture. You watch the show, enjoy, and get an idea of what Singapore is like. Tourists even try to identify what language the songs are from and learn about the races we have here. For locals, Songs of the Sea is like a mini National Day Parade,” said Yazid Hussein, 28, who has been part of the cast since 2008.


But in a bid to constantly refresh its attractions, the newly commissioned show will have a brand new storyline too.

More details will be released closer to the opening.

‘Songs of the Sea’| Time: Daily shows at 7.40pm and 8.40pm | Venue: Along Siloso Beach| Tickets: Premium seats ($18), Standard seats ($15/ $12 for local residents) via
