Historic vessels are modified to become marvellous musical
instruments and sculptural pieces in themselves,
resurrecting the lost sounds of the river with steam
whistles, bells, horns hooters, sirens and canon. The
day-long performance starts at sea near the mouth of the
Thames Estuary, when a lone ship makes its way upriver to
join the other mustered vessels at Trinity Buoy Wharf, home
of London's last lighthouse. The fleet will then go on to
present a dazzling finale of sound, light and steam at Tower
Bridge later that night. The vessels will bring back the
historic sounds of the Thames as they perform a live,
moving, operatic concerto against the stunning backdrop of
one of the world's most famous bridges. The ships' opera
will be conducted, by semaphore, from the top of the Trinity
Lightship, a lighthouse on top of a ship.
