Chingay Parade 2015
Chingay Parade hops onto the SG50 bandwagon as it returns with the unfortunately unimaginative theme of ‘We Love Singapore’, comprising a two-night parade, a Chingay Night Fiesta at Orchard, and five heartland parades. The largest-ever number of international performers is set to feature this year, with participants from countries as diverse as Russia, Rwanda and Turkey. As usual, the parade’s highlights are the 12- to 18-metre-high floats, stilt walkers, and lion dancers. And in the grand finale, expect to see a gigantic ‘Tree of Hope’ embellished with well wishes from local youths and hear JJ Lin belt out a specially penned tune, ‘Dream’.
River Hongbao 2015
One of the most iconic events to take place along the waterfront, River Hongbao returns for the 29th year with lantern displays, handicrafts, and performances by local and international artists. To commemorate Singapore’s 50th anniversary, this edition features an exhibition entitled Reliving the Past, Welcoming the New Year, which showcases more than 230 photographs documenting the way Singaporeans have been celebrating Chinese New Year through the decades. And if you get hungry, feel free to stuff your face with a variety of local delicacies like chicken rice, bak kut teh, prawn noodles, ice kacang and more.
The squeamish needn’t worry – the rodents in this play are all actors. A helpless mouse has to talk its way out of the jaws of a ferocious lion or risk being turned into dinner. Presented by I Theatre, this production mixes live action with songs and puppetry to tell Aesop’s Fables in whole new ways. For kids aged three to 13.
Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts
As Chinese New Year approaches, Huayi returns with another diverse showcase of free and ticketed programmes across theatre, dance, music and visual arts. Highlights include: What is Sex?, a play by famed Hong Kong director Edward Lam about 12 bachelors whose female clients lure them to read the Chinese classic, Dream of the Red Chamber; Travel with Mum, centred on a 74-year-old man who bikes his 99-year-old mother across China; and Rice, a dance performance, choreographed by Lin Hwai-min, about the farming community in Taiwan.
Singapore International Jazz Festival 2015
Following its successful debut, the festival returns to Marina Bay Sands with more than 250 artists from mainstream, smooth soul, R&B, contemporary pop and acid jazz. The line-up features headliner Jessie J, pianist and composer Ramsey Lewis, trumpeter Chris Botti, fusion-jazz group Snarky Puppy and Singapore's very own Jeremy Monteiro.
