Come and experience Northern Lights, a thrilling thematic journey through Canada’s history. Northern Lights is a free bilingual sound and light show presented nightly from July 9 to September 10, 2016!

This summer marks the second year of Northern Light’s 5-year program. It is the 6th edition of the Sound and Light Show on Parliament Hill since 1984, and runs for the next four consecutive summers (2015-2019). Manulife is the exclusive sponsor.

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.

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.

Northern Lights is a free bilingual evening show presented from July 9 to September 10, 2016. Show times: in July at 10:00 p.m., in August at 9:30 p.m., and in September at 9:00 p.m.

The “cube” installed on the Hill not only houses a laser, but hosts interactive games one hour before the show begins. Arrive early to play along!

The show projectors are capable of displaying 35,251,200 total pixels, about 17 times more than an HD television screen (2,073,600).

More than 15 km of lighting control cabling is used in order to run the Sound and Light show.

More than 25,000 feet of Fiber optic cable is deployed for the show.

Roger Hodgson, legendary singer-songwriter formerly of Supertramp returns to Ottawa Tuesday, November 8 at the Arena at TD Place!

Back in Ottawa by popular demand after a sold out show in 2015, Roger Hodgson, one of the most gifted composers and lyricists of our time, co-founded the progressive rock band, Supertramp, in 1969 is returning to Ottawa!  Roger was the driving force behind what fans call the “golden years” of the band that made Supertramp a worldwide phenomenon with album sales in excess of 60 million. He wrote, sang, and arranged such enduring rock standards as “Breakfast in America,” “Give a Little Bit,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “The Logical Song,” “Dreamer,” “It’s Raining Again,” “School,”  and “Fool’s Overture.” 

Uniting generations, Hodgson transports baby boomers back to their youth while giving younger concertgoers a taste of why his heartfelt songs have endured. In Canada, sales for Crime of the Century and Breakfast in America reached Diamond status; one in every 15 Canadians owned both these albums!
