Combining bold digital technology with the architectural splendour of the Parliament Buildings, the show illuminates Canadian stories of nation-building, partnership, discovery, valour, pride and vision at the heart of our country. Audiences have been captivated by sound and light shows on Parliament Hill for more than 30 years. Key figures, events and achievements from Canadian history are brought to life using five distinct artistic styles. All are presented in spectacular detail, with stirring narration and an original score, against the backdrop of the Centre Block and Peace Tower. The narrative unfolds through five thematic “books”: Foundations of the Nation, Strength in Partnership, Discovery and Adventure, Valour, Pride and Vision.
