BP resident choreographer Alden Lugnasin creates his original contemporary ballet based on the legend of the city of Mandaluyong, with libretto by Nicolas B. Pichay and original music by independent music icon Cynthia Alexander.

Set in pre-colonial Manila, the story highlights the exemplary love of Luyong, a gifted carpenter, and Manda, a tribal princess, and their sacrifice in the face of the coming foreign invaders. This work is co-produced by the City of Mandaluyong as an initiative of Hon. Mayor Benjamin Abalos Jr.

BP Artistic Director Paul Alexander Morales says, “We are encouraged that local governments like Mandaluyong find it important to support works that have historical and cultural significance, and we hope that it will encourage the other local governments and the national government to do the same.”

Tickets are at P600 to P1000, with performance dates on February 17 and 18 at 3 PM and 8 PM, and February 19 at 10 AM and 3 PM.
For tickets call Ticketworld at 891-9999; Ballet Philippines at 551-1003, 551-7919, 624-5701; CCP Box Office at 832-3704 or visit www.balletphilippines.org.
