Ballet Philippines Opens 43rd Season with Local and International Works

A bold gala of local and international works opens the season of Ballet Philippines’ 43rd Season: Dragon Song in Songs, on July 6-8, 2012 at the CCP Main Theater.

“Dragon years are always significant with their great energy and sense of renewal, the beginning of a new cycle,” says BP Artistic Director Paul Alexander Morales. “ Let’s all rally behind and embrace the company that has brought much pride to the country—after all, it is truly OUR OWN.

Songs also features sensational masterworks in the arsenal of Ballet Philippines including:
  • Les Petit Mots D’Amour by Redha Beintefour (France)

    A compelling dance piece that embodies man’s innermost desires. In it, man is reduced to his primal origins as he covets and yearns for an interactive idea. This vigorous search thrusts him into an enigmatic core of emotional existence. First performed in the Philippines in 1994.
  • Moriones by Agnes Locsin (Philippines)

    Inspired by the Moriones Festival of Marinduque, Locsin’s MORIONES was choreographed for Ballet Philippines 2’s participation at the Recontres Festival Du Danse in La Baule, France. It was also a study for movement for the Guardias Civil dance for Locsin’s coming Encantada, slated to be premiered the next year. First performed in July 1991, Manila, Philippines.
  • This is My Life by Alden Lugnasin (Philippines)

    This solo contemporary dance piece highlights the independence and elegance of woman.
Songs will also feature works by BP’s Morales, as well as a new pas de deux choreographed by former BP artistic director Augustus Damian III. Damian’s piece will be premiered by Candice Adea and Jean Marc Cordero, who have recently triumphed at the 2012 Helsinki International Ballet Competition.

Songs will run from July 6-8, 2012 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Main Theater.
