IBALONG TOUR for the Ibalong Festival in August 2013 – Legazpi City
(Available for local or international bookings. Please inquire TP Marketing.)

Synopsis:
In the midst of a great war between mortals and monsters, a serpentine creature falls for a man, leading to the birth of a new civilization.

Entitled after Legazpi City’s week-long festivity, “Ibalong,” the musical tells the story of Handyong and his warriors who come to Bicol – formerly known as Ibalon – and wage war against beasts and monsters pillaging the land’s natural wealth. Handyong mightily battles creatures bearing a solitary eye and three throats, several winged sharks, and wild carabaos.

In introducing civilization to the barbaric land, Handyong matches wit and might with the scheming snake, Oryol. A master of deceit, Oryol disguises herself into a sweet, young lady in order to seduce Handyong. But not to be outwitted, Handyong eventually makes Oryol fall in love with him.

Their love story – between a warrior and a monster – defines the greatness of Bicol as it explores an individual’s capacity for good and evil, and a land’s history marked by progress and destruction.

Using elaborate costumes, energetic fight choreography, and haunting music, Tanghalang Pilipino promises audiences of all ages an enthralling theatre experience rarely seen in original Filipino theatre.

ANG NEGOSYANTE NG VENECIA

Synopsis:
The Merchant of Venice was written by William Shakespeare between 1596 and 1598. Though it has been classified as a comedy in his compilation of plays known as the “First Folio” and sharing certain aspects with other romantic comedies, The Merchant of Venice is popularly known for its dramatic scenes and speeches such as “Hath not a Jew’s eyes” and Portia’s speech about the “quality of mercy”.

This play is about a bitter detested Jewish moneylender who seeks revenge against a Chrisitian merchant who has defaulted on a loan. TP’s version will be a departure from the usual interpretation. A play within a play, it will be set during the Holocaust and Nazis directiong the Jewish “actors” and will underscore the dehumanizing effect of racism and intolerance.

Synopsis:
The whole nation will be celebrating the 150th birth anniversary of its National Hero, Andres Bonifacio on November 30, 2013. Considered to be an under rated hero compared to the highly recognized Dr. Jose P. Rizal, this celebration will be a much awaited opportunity to open the consciousness of the Filipino, especially of the youth, to the great virtues of Andres Bonifacio, that led to the early stirrings in aspiring for Philippine nationhood.

It is therefore providential that Virgilio S. Almario, National Artist for Literature, has chosen to write the libretto on the life of Andres Bonifacio, for mounting into a full opera in November, 2013, through Tanghalang Pilipino, CCP’s resident theater company.

A modern opera in two acts that dwells into the life, love, failures, and successes of Andres Bonifacio, the play is entitled San AndresB. Uncommonly known as an artist, this play reveals the secret life of our National Hero and how it influenced the movement towards this country’s fight for freedom and independence. The opera performances will be backed up with a live orchestra and professional opera singers and actors tapped mostly from the University of the Philippines Conservatory of Music and
