After a successful seven-year run, 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. Starting tomorrow, 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 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.
Surge of Support to Experience the final Songs of the Sea shows
Members of the public expressed their support in the final weeks of Songs of the Sea, with many bringing their families and friends for a repeat visit, or to catch the show for the first time. Guests also snapped up discounted tickets to catch the show through a Facebook offer.
Online fans also shared photos of their memories of the show via Instagram in a contest by Sentosa. Winners, chosen by the public, brought their families for a behind-the-scenes tour of the show on 26 April for once-in-a-lifetime insights to one of Singapore’s most popular live performances.
Ms Shalny Ong, 32, an admin assistant and mother of one, watched Songs of the Sea in 2010 with her siblings and remembered it fondly. She submitted a montage of photos she had taken then for the contest and was thrilled to win the contest. She brought her father, husband and son, who have yet to see the show prior to this, for the back-of-house tour. "What impressed us most was seeing the small Control Room in action, and how it controls every aspect of the show. My son also enjoyed learning dance movements from the cast during the session. We are definitely looking forward to the new show and will certainly be the first to catch it!”
Cast members also sprung a surprise on the audience during one of the performances on 2 May 2014. Squeals of delight and cheers abound as key cast members interacted with the audience, after the finale portion, which usually featured the cast members dancing free-style and singing with the audiences.
“It has been a memorable seven years for Sentosa, and we take this opportunity on behalf of the cast and the crew to thank our guests for their unwavering support. In the past few weeks, we saw a surge of new and returning guests catching the show before it ends. Songs of the Sea has made history in Singapore’s night entertainment scene and will forever be in the minds of many.
“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.
Racing Against Time for Singapore’s Next Biggest Night Entertainment Icon
With weeks away before the new show launches, Sentosa and ECA2 will embark on extensive renovations to overhaul the stage area and equipment within the show premise.

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.
