The Cultural Extravaganza 2019 returns for its 3rd edition, and invites all to discover Singapore’s evolving and contemporary Chinese culture in our everyday life. Presented by the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre, come and uncover the heritage behind our daily cup of kopi, learn about how Chinese wedding traditions have evolved across generations, get to know Singapore’s thriving Chinese comic market, or even pick up a circus trick or two from a local community circus.
Held over three weeks, get set to be immersed in a dynamic line-up of programmes featuring performances by home-grown arts and cultural groups, exhibitions, workshops, talks, creative markets and more. The Cultural Extravaganza will open with the Cultural Centre’s newly commissioned musical Memoirs of Nanyang by Siong Leng Musical Association, which fuses Nanyin with Malay cultural music and Mandarin pop. The extravaganza will culminate in a crowd favourite concert by the brightest artistes from the local Chinese music scene, as Sing.Lang returns to set the stage ablaze with high-energy performances through the night.
Ticketing charges apply for selected programmes.
