THE Sydney Opera House has ‘crumbled’ in spectacular fashion as part of the Vivid Sydney Festival 2012.
In a mesmerising light show on the Australian Harbour City’s famous sails, projected 3D dancers show off their moves before the Opera House appears to collapse.
The Vivid Festival runs from 25 May – 11 June and is an annual festival of light, music and ideas featuring the spectacular illumination of the Sydney Opera House sails. World renowned pop artist and music producer will.i.am (of the Black Eyed Peas) will participate in this year’s festival on a world-first interactive lighting collaboration on the façade of the recently constructed new wing of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) with renowned Sydney artist Justene Williams, facilitated by world-leading Sydney digital arts company Spinifex.
Now in its fourth year, Vivid has become Sydney’s major festival in winter, lighting up the city each night from 6pm with free and ticketed events at Sydney Opera House, Museum of Contemporary Art, Circular Quay and The Rocks.
