The Singapore Night Festival 2011, a magnificent outdoor performing arts events and performances, is back again with a big bang, some awesome lineups from around the world. This year, it is known as the Voyage Night Festival 2011, with a very special theme – “an evocation of the spirit behind journeys of departures,arrivals,landings; of passages, pilgrimages, inter-marriages encountered in sound,movement and images.” (Source: Voyage Festival 2011 website).
Reaching there at around 8pm with Renhao, we soaked around the Night Festival grounds, watching roving performance and a beautiful singing of Singer Oana Cătălina Chitu’s and Bucharest Tango, beautiful music that we can listen to, complemented by a pair of local Singapore tango dancers and a duet with a Chinese Orchestra instrument,

In 2011, Singapore is graced by Theater Tolwith their artistic and remarkable display “Corazon de Angeles in Paradise“, the main draw card for the Voyage Night Festival, drawing huge crowds on Friday and Saturday nights. It’s about marriage between different cultures, a musical, dance, acrobatics, live and pyrotechnics performances, on the ground level, as well as hanging and spinning in the air too! The crowds were entertained to a magnificent display and their act was very well received. Theater Tol also showed photographs of old Singapore from its early settlement days, from her humble beginning since the 19th century, the history and social development of Singapore’s civic district. Close to the grand finale of pyrotechnics above the sky and the shower of confetti, feathers and golden flakes from the performers above, bringing the Voyage Festival 2011 to a momentous peak of musical joy and happiness.
This year’s 2011 Singapore Night Festival outdoor live arts musical performance, left beautiful memories with me and I am glad to capture them down with my thoughts and photographs, the past few years Singapore Night Festival were awesome too, helping to transform Singapore into a vibrant and lively country/city with its colourful arts environment.
