Ballet And Ballads Combo, Why Not?


Ballet Manila’s 22nd performance season is set to close with the most star-studded installment of “Ballet & Ballads” yet. With final preparations underway, the audience should also prepare for a full showcase of the company’s storytelling prowess and mastery of the Vaganova technique.

Ballet Manila CEO and Artistic Director Lisa Macuja-Elizalde shares that it’s almost like a tradition in the performance season repertoire. Not only that, but also this format of combining a singer and ballet numbers makes their style of storytelling more appealing and more accessible to the audience. “It’s all about what the audience enjoys and what they would love to go back to,” shares Lisa.

The ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra has accompanied us in many past productions. And it is always a joy to perform with them.

Other guest performers are Christian Bautista, international baritone Andrew Fernando, scholars of the Klassikal Music Foundation, special participation of tenor Dr. George T. Yang.

“Ballet & Ballads” goes onstage at the Aliw Theater, Pasay City with the following remaining shows:

February  17 6:00 p.m.
February   18 3:00 p.m.
