Garden Rhapsody returns to Gardens by the Bay from January 8

The popular light and sound show at Supertree Grove is finally back

There's nothing like fresh air and picturesque views, especially when taking a refreshing stroll through the majestic, gargantuan gardens surrounded by exotic foliage at Gardens by the Bay. But take it from us, it's even more magical at sunset when the Garden Rhapsody light show comes on.

The popular light and sound show at Supertree Grove spotlights the illuminated Supertrees which change hues in time to a musical soundtrack as if they are "dancing" along to it. However, due to the pandemic, Garden Rhapsody was forced to go on a hiatus during the circuit breaker last year. It then resumed with a small-scale version in September, featuring soothing background music and soft lighting, so as to ensure safe distancing management and crowd control.

Thanks to Singapore's transition to Phase 3, Garden Rhapsody is finally able to make its highly anticipated comeback. It returns with a bang – literally – from January 8 with two full-scale shows, twice every evening at its original 7.45pm and 8.45pm timing. There are altogether 10 shows planned for 2021. This January, look forward to Garden Waltz, where 12 Supertrees "dance" to an uplifting compilation of music including Frédéric Chopin's Grande Valse Brilliante, Johann Strauss Junior's By the Beautiful Blue Danube, and Emile Waldteufe's Skater Waltz.

It also remains free, with no prior registration needed. However, Safe Distancing Ambassadors and security officers will be on-site to enforce safe management measures such as maintaining a safe distance from each other, not congregating in groups of over eight, and wearing face masks at all times. Kickstart 2021 with some magical moments with the magnificent Supertrees. For more information, visit
