Northern Lights is a free bilingual show presented nightly from July 9 to September 3, 2018. Show times: in July at 10:00 p.m., in August at 9:30 p.m. and in September at 9:00 p.m. This experience of sound and light is a thrilling thematic journey through Canada’s history. 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. Inspired by the stained glass windows of the Memorial Chamber in the Peace Tower, this intensely colourful book celebrates the natural grandeur of our country and the diversity of her people. Northern Lights is the 6th edition of the Sound and Light Show on Parliament Hill since 1984, and runs for five consecutive summers (2015-2019).
