Photo Flash: Ballet Philippines' New Staging of SWAN LAKE, Now Thru 3/5
Manila, Philippines--Ballet Philippines (BP), the country's flagship classical and contemporary dance company, stages Tchaikovsky's best-loved ballet SWAN LAKE anew at the Cultural Center of the Philippines' (CCP) Main Theatre, now through March 5, 2017. This new production marks the 140th anniversary of the show's premiere.
The ballet tells the story of Prince Siegfried, who falls in love with Odette, a beautiful princess cursed by the evil Baron Von Rothbart. Unless the curse is broken by a royal marriage vow, Odette is doomed to forever spend her days as the Swan Queen. The sorcerer and his daughter Odile work together to destroy Siegfried and Odette's romance in this classical ballet masterpiece.
BP's SWAN LAKE, directed by Nonoy Froilan, features three extraordinary pairings for Odette/Odile and Prince Siegfried: multi-awarded guest artists Candice Adea and Joseph Phillips, BP principal dancer Denise Parungao and company member Garry Corpuz, and soloists Jemima Reyes and Victor Maguad in their first lead roles in a classical ballet.
Ohm David is set designer; James Reyes, costume designer.
