Top Filipino designers and opera singers grace Ballet Philippines’ INAMORATA

Inamorata—the woman with whom one is in love.

Ballet Philippines’ second offering for the 42nd Season: Faces of Eve, Inamorata, on September 23-25, 2011 at the CCP Main Theater, transforms the country’s grandest theater into an intimate venue of love, music, fashion and beautiful dancing.

Highlighting the company’s versatility and mastery of both classical ballet and contemporary dance, Inamorata is a mixed bill performance featuring timeless classics such as The Dying Swan, the immortal solo choreographed for legendary ballerina Anna Pavlova set to the poignant music of Saint-Saens’ Le Cygne, the comedic love pas de deux from Harlequinade, and the bravura pas de deux from Flames of Paris.

It also features all-new choreography by the Philippines’ brightest choreographers: Ballet Philippines’ resident choreographer Alden Lugnasin, former BP artistic director Denisa Reyes, Dwight Rodrigazo, Novy Bereber, and Hong Kong based choreographer and 2010 Gawad Buhay winner for Outstanding Choreography Carlo Pacis. Their dancers will be wearing costumes designed by top Filipino designers including Rajo Laurel, Lulu Tan Gan, Ito Curata and Jojie Lloren.

Completing the mood are chamber musicians and renowned Filipino opera singers Rachelle Gerodias and Camille Lopez-Molina, who will perform the beautiful songs of the new choreographies, on evening shows.

“The strength of ballet is that it highlights the fusion of all the arts,” says Ballet Philippines artistic director Paul Alexander Morales. “In this special evening where we honor women as the beloved, we are excited about the heightened experience of dance paired with beautiful voices and the cutting edge looks from our top designers.”
