Like Nothing Else 2 is a symphonic masterpiece that elegantly weaves together songs, grand piano tunes, poetry, dance and new technology. The concert assumes the form of an aquatic journey trailing from the streets of Paris across Rome and back to the cityscape skylines of Singapore.

Each piece in the repertoire links back to the theme of water and as water shapeshifts from rain to dew to tears, the concert traverses well-known masterpieces with the help of performers from Singapore, France and Italy.

Like Nothing Else 2 opens at Esplanade Theatres on the Bay located at 1 Esplanade Drive, Singapore 038981, p. +65 6828 8377. Showing Nov 4, 2021, 4pm and 8pm. Tickets priced at $50, book here.
