Farewell Sentosa’s Songs of the Sea

After 7 years of running, Sentosa's signature night show, Songs of the Sea is bidding goodbye to all of us and will make its final performance on 4 May.

I made my way down to Sentosa to catch the show in the final weeks of Songs of the Sea. This was my first time watching and also my last time.

The event begain with an opening address by Mr Mike Barclay, CEO of Sentosa Development Corporation, who share with us more details on the new night spectacular in June. Sentosa will launch a brand new night attraction, that promises to be bigger, better and inspirational.

Brought GF along with me to catch Songs of the Sea.

The sun has set down, the beautiful night has approached. A packed gallery of guests eagerly awaits the start of the world's only night extravaganza, Songs of the Sea.

Can't wait for the spectacular show to begin.

Songs of the Sea is a live show of 7 casts.

The show began with Li and his friends appearing from 2 different direction to greet the audience. They sang us 4 different songs - Singapura, Chan Mali Chan, Munnaeru Vaalibaa and Chinese Folk Song. Their performance serenaded everyone and the songs reminded me of my childhood memories, I used to sing them during my primary school times. Those carefree days........

While Li was singing his "Magical Song", an image of an sleeping Princes has emerged over the kelong and disappeared within seconds.

Here came Oscar, the Tiger Fish, who lives in a undersea kingdom ruled by Princess Ami.

Oscar has came up to find out from Li what has happen and learnt about the enchantment of the kelong.

While Li was on his way to save the Princess, he met Lord of Fire. Li sang his "Magical Song" and helped him to regain his powers.

The Lord of Fire has cast the flame to erupt, showing his power.

Li has met obstacles along the way and he overcame it with his "Magical Song".

The award-winning show has endeared itself to locals and tourists alike with its dramatic effects and pyrotechnics.

The effect was spectacular and breathtaking.

After many rounds of trying, Princess Ami was finally awaken and at once, the spectacular fountain came to life.


The place was cast with an array of light, lighting up the kelong. I was immersed in the scene, it was so gorgeous and magical.

Guests were in for a delightful surprise, as several cast members specially dived into the audience gallery during the finale segment, singing and doing hi-fives with the guests. One of the cast was doing a high-five with Mr Mike Barclay, CEO of Sentosa Development Corporation.

The grand finale. 
Songs of the Sea show cast its spell over the audiences from Singapore and the world with a dazzling display of fireworks, enthusiastic sing-alongs and spirited goodbyes with the cast.

Songs of the Sea ends with a special "thank you" note on the water screen, ending its successful 7 year run as one of Singapore's most successful permanent night attraction. The world’s only night extravaganza set in the sea has captivated 8.5 million guests with a unique blend of live cast, dramatic effects and pyrotechnics.

Thank you Songs of the Sea for the magical night, we had a great and memorable time that will always be remembered. 

Bye be Oscar.
