Yesterday, Sentosa waved good-bye to Songs of the Sea with an impressive display of fireworks, zealous sing-alongs and emotional goodbyes from the cast. After a successful seven years and more than 5,000 shows, the world’s only night extravaganza set in the sea has captivated 8.5 million guests with an interesting blend of live cast, dramatic effects and dazzling pyrotechnics. Starting today, the show grounds will close in preparation for the new multimedia night spectacular – Wings of Time.
Wings of Time, produced by the award-winning events company ECA2, will unveil its majestic charm from 17 June 2014 onwards at the same outdoor theatre as Songs of the Sea. The show will present a never-seen-before ensemble of artistically choreographed multimedia effects, a talented live cast, and fun audience engagement. With a new 10-metre tall backdrop against Sentosa’s Siloso Beach’s picturesque scenery, the 25-min spectacular will take the audiences on a magical journey of regal proportions, with new robotic fountains, 3D video mapping and enhanced pyrotechnic effects. A talented cast will take audiences on a journey filled with adventure, courage and friendship in this family-friendly extravaganza.
It tells the story of a fantastic journey through time and space. A bird-like creature, Shahbaz, from prehistoric times goes on an adventure with two modern-day teenagers in search of home. Along the way, they discover the world by exploring wondrous locations around the world. As the teenagers assist their newfound friend to find his way home, they too must face a test of their courage and friendship. The decisions they make will eventually help them (or not) to find their own way home too.
“Wings of Time will redefine history again, bringing together a breathtaking adventure with the latest multimedia effects and values we can identify with. We are confident that this will again push the boundaries of premium entertainment options for families, even after the sun sets,” said Mr Sam Lee, Director, Island Business, Sentosa Leisure Management.
With just weeks away before the new show launches, Sentosa and ECA2 are embarking on extensive renovations to overhaul the stage area and equipment within the show premise. State-of-the- art technology meets contemporary storytelling as Wings of Time showcases a new choreography of pyrotechnics and special effects tightly woven into the storyline. New equipment including robotic moving water jets with LED lights and coloured lasers will be installed, while existing infrastructure will be boosted with upgrades for a seamless integration to take every guest’s breath away. Casting calls for the new cast have been completed and they will undergo intensive training by Sentosa and ECA2.
Wings of Time will be a ticketed performance, with daily shows at 7.40pm and 8.40pm along Siloso Beach. Premium seats are available at S$23 per person, while standard seats are at S$18 (standard rate), and S$15 (for local residents).
