Chingay Parade

What The largest street performance and float parade in Asia, the Chingay Parade is a sight to behold with its dazzling display of lights, lasers and pyrotechnics, and elaborate floats along with multi-ethnic performances by local and international acts. The parade was first held in 1973, and has been hallmark of Singapore’s lunar new year celebrations since. The festivities will begin from the F1 Pit Building at Marina Waterfront—where you can visit a carnival and catch street performances—and end at The Float@Marina Bay.

What Follow the rags-to-riches story of Eva Duarte Perón, from a child born out of wedlock to the First Lady of Argentina—the most powerful woman in Latin America. Originally opened at the Prince Edward Theatre London in 1978, Evita has since won more than 20 major awards, and captured the imagination of theatre audiences around the world with Eva’s fairytale story, twisted with the cruel hand of fate. Feast your ears on familiar hits like Don't Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, Oh What A Circus, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall. The production reunites Evita’s original creative team—director Hal Prince (who has won 21 Tony awards), West End and Broadway choreographer Larry Fuller, and designer Timothy O’brien.
