Ballet Manila's Lola Basyang

ArtPipe Events Filed Under:

Ballet Manila presents three new enchanting tales from Philippine literature's most iconic storyteller when it opens its 18th season next month with Tatlo Pang Kuwento ni Lola Basyang.

This is the much-awaited follow-up to its all-Filipino extravaganza Tatlong Kuwento ni Lola Basyang which premiered in 2008 and has since become a blockbuster seen by over a hundred thousand viewers.

Based on Anvil Publishing's Ang Mga Kuwento ni Lola Basyang ni Severino Reyes, the new production will have its world premiere on August 23, 7:30 p.m., at Aliw Theater, CCP Complex, Pasay City. Other shows are set on: August 24 and 31 and September 7, 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.; August 25, September 1 and 8, 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

“We're happy to bring back Lola Basyang, who is one of the most beloved characters in Philippine literature, with more stories that are sure to captivate young audiences,” says prima ballerina and Ballet Manila artistic director Lisa Macuja-Elizalde.

Veteran TV actress and radio talent Luz Fernandez returns as Lola Basyang, who together with the young girl Ate Missy portrayed by Missy Elizalde, will be weaving the three stories together.

Stage direction is by Roxanne Lapus, costume design by Michael Miguel, lighting design by Jaime Villanueva and production design by Jonathan Janolo.
