  • A Silent Hour


    In the past decade or so, aligned along the busiest streets of our small nation are a small group of impassioned individuals who have capitalized on the relaxed rulings of street performing licenses in this highly regulated society.

    A Silent Hour features Yee Kien, a young and passionate busker who busks for the love of it. Join us as he shares his love for music, performing on the streets, and gain a little insight into his life, as we bring busking to the shophouse theatre NOWplaying@17, for the most intimate performance of your life.


    A Silent Hour: Yee Kien

    Busking for the Love of It

    22-year-old Yee Kien is a Mathematics & Economics student at SIM, but busks on the streets for the love of it. Unlike most musicians his age, Yee Kien has no plans to pursue music full-time despite his alarming talent but promises to be busking for the long haul. Join him as he recounts his journey of being an absurdly young street musician in Singapore, and be enthralled by his brand of “mouth music”.

  • The Phantom of the Opera

    Based on the classic novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA tells the tale of a disfigured musical genius known only as the Phantom who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talent and beauty of a young soprano, Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her. Unaware of Christine’s love for Raoul, the Phantom’s obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealousy, madness and passions collide.

    It became the longest-running show in Broadway history on 9 January 2006 when it celebrated its 7,486th performance. With over 70 major theatre awards, including seven Tony’s on Broadway and four Olivier Awards in the West End, THA PHANTOM OF THE OPERA won the ‘Magic Radio Audience Award’, voted by the public, in the 2016 Laurence Olivier Awards.

    The world’s most popular musical makes a long-awaited return to the Sands Theatre at Marina Bay Sands for a limited season from April 24. Tickets are now on sale through SISTIC and Marina Bay Sands ticketing.

  • KURIOS: Cabinet of Curiosities

    In an alternate yet familiar past, in a place where wonders abound for those who trust their imagination, a Seeker discovers that in order to glimpse the marvels that lie just below the surface, we must first learn to close our eyes.

    In his larger-than-life curio cabinet, the Seeker is convinced that there exists a hidden, invisible world – a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams lie waiting. A collection of otherworldly characters suddenly steps into his makeshift mechanical world. When the outlandish, benevolent characters turn his world upside down with a touch of poetry and humour in an attempt to ignite the Seeker’s imagination, his curios jump to life one by one before his very eyes.

    What if by engaging our imagination and opening our minds we could unlock the door to a world of wonders?

    Cirque du Soleil arrives in Singapore with its most acclaimed touring show to date called, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities™.

    Sex. Violence. Blurred lines.

    An undergrad and a lecturer begin a precarious flirtation. Two workmates go on a date that each remembers very differently. A long lost bogeyman returns to draw new blood from old scars. Eight bodies collide. Eight souls crisscross. Eight lives get entangled in a web of pain, shame and heartbreak. And the world as they each know it will never be the same again.

    Millions globally are being pulled into the #MeToo minefield and the Time’s Up tsunami, with numerous victims of sexual misconduct finding their voices as survivors and warriors. Then there are the many voices that are never heard, stories never told, secrets never shared, truths never revealed.

    THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS TO PRETTY GIRLS is an explosive and timely theatrical event that will challenge you to question yourself and the people you think you know. Especially those who believe that “this is what happens to pretty girls”.

    You have been warned.
