SHOW SYNOPSIS

Light brings HOPE

The foundation for the 2020 Lights of Christmas is HOPE. HOPE utilises symbols to inspire optimism for the future.

Light plays a vital role in our lives and is fundamental to our existence. Light can change our mood, increase our energy levels and enable us to see things we never imagined.

Light brings us hope!

Synopsis

This year’s Lights of Christmas begins with the flickering of a candle, the candle is a symbolic reminder of the difficult year we have experienced and a solemn gesture to those in our community who we lost to the pandemic and the natural disasters of 2020.

The flickering light of the candle reminds us of life.

Light brings Hope

With the dawning of a new day, light breathes life into the natural world bringing with it a new sense of hope. Christmas is celebrated in the summer months in Sydney, the sun is the giver of life and provides the essential ingredient for nature to bloom and flourish.

As the sun rises, it covers the entire façade of the cathedral. As it slowly rotates, the sun bathes us in light, a positive sign for the future. With this renewed positivity we experience Joy.

Inspired by the colours of the stained-glass windows in St Mary’s Cathedral and the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, we watch as patterns are made and remade that together with the voices of the cathedral choir, transcend us to a place of reflection, wonder and hope.
