With tighter restrictions imposed in Singapore, many festivals and events are retreating back online like it was pre-Phase 3. No surprise there. While most shows are forced to postpone or move online, some are allowed to proceed with up to 100 people pre-event testing, and 50 people without testing. Other restrictions include limiting social gatherings to two people and no dining in.

Although nothing can compare to cosying up in a hushed auditorium as the lights go down, there's still a myriad of online programmes to keep you occupied while waiting (and wishing) for brighter days. After all, the show must go on. From streaming a local theatre production and an animated classical music concert to watching a virtual magic show and your favourite zoo animals in action, here are some of the best local online programmes to catch from the comfort of your favourite comfy corner.

Zoos including the iconic Singapore Zoo and Night Safari have been welcoming animal lovers of all ages since reopening their doors last year. But if you're looking to get up close and personal without leaving your own personal cave, you can take a virtual walk on the wild side with Wildlife Reserves Singapore.

Back online by popular demand, the second season of Hello From The Wild Side features more unique interactions with the adorable critters, as well as a newly curated Zoo Explained! segment which offers limited edition content every month. In the first session of Zoo Explained!, you'll get to meet the playful Emperor Tamarins from River Safari and their dedicated keeper Ken who has all the answers to your burning questions about the intelligent and inquisitive creatures.
