To open its 17th performance season, Ballet Manila brings back Alamat: Si Sibol at si Gunaw, an all-Filipino original production that combines magic, myth and a message of love for Mother Earth.
Presented by the Manila Broadcasting Company, Bookmark, Aliw Theater and Star City, with Manila Hotel as major sponsor. Alamat: Si Sibol at Si Gunaw goes onstage on August 24, 25 and 26, and September 1 and 2 at the Aliw Theater, CCP Complex, Pasay City.
“Alamat is a call to nurture the environment as told through dance, music and special effects, making it both a timely and entertaining treat for the whole family,” says prima ballerina Lisa Macuja-Elizalde, Ballet Manila's artistic director.
With choreography by Ballet Manila artistic associate Osias Barroso and junior principal dancer Gerardo Francisco, Alamat: Si Sibol at Si Gunaw features music by various Filipino artists including George Canseco, Willy Cruz and Edru Abraham. Musical arrangement is by Mon Faustino and Noel Zarate.
“The material was enriched, especially with the new ending suggested by Lisa Macuja, while retaining the central theme of the story,” says Maranan. “The greatest satisfaction, of course, was seeing the enthusiastic reception by the mostly young audiences who came to Aliw Theater. They were entertained, and they got the environmental message.”
