Florante at Laura

Anonymous Filed Under:

Yutaka Yamakawa is a home-grown Gantimpala Theater talent whose training as GTF Summer Drama Workshop participant has enabled him to pursue an active and exciting career in film and television. This versatile and handsome young actor has appeared in various Gantimpala productions, essaying a variety of roles in plays such as “Kanser” (as Padre Salvi), “El Filibusterismo” (Juanito/Padre Irene), “Bombita” (de Lara) and “Wanted: A Chaperone” (Fred). He was also part of “Ibong Adarna,” “Walang Iwanan” and “Grethology.”

This season, he returns to his mother company as the lead in “Florante at Laura” after playing Menandro and Aladin in previous seasons. “Doing the role for the second time, I know I will do it better,” the actor avers. “Giving more than one-hundred-percent of myself, my emotions, I am playing for truth here, you know, I want the audiences to see the many trials and triumphs of Florante with the hope that they wil have a better understanding and appreciation of Balagtas’ literary masterpiece.”

“Florante is a soldier, son and lover,” Yutaka says of his role. “He loves Albania, his family, Duke Briseo and Reyna Floresca and of course, the love of his life, Laura. Every thing he does is dictated by passion with the consuming desire to do right.”

Playing his Laura in this production is Vera Capiral, alternate is Al Gatmaitan, with Leo Ponseca and CJ Mangahis as the Moor lovers, Aladin and Flerida.
