Manila, Philippines, December 2, 2012 - The legendary Indian epic tale of "Ramayana" comes to life once again with Ballet Philippines' (BP) restaging of the hit pop ballet musical "Rama Hari," which opened last Friday, November 30, and will run until Sunday, December 9 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) Main Theatre. 

"Rama Hari," BP's third offering for its current season, top-bills some of television, theater, and ballet's brightest stars: Christian Bautista and OJ Mariano alternating as Rama; Karylle Tatlonghari and Kalila Aguilos alternating as Sita; Robert Sena as the demon Ravana; thespians and singers Christian Rey Marbella, Noel Rayos, Lani Ligot, Amparo Sietereales, and Brezhnev Larlar; and BP's principal dancers Jean Marc Cordero and Richardson Yadao alternating as Rama, and Carissa Adea and Katherine Trofeo alternating as Sita.

According to BP's Artistic Director Paul Alexander Morales, what makes this production special is the groundbreaking artistic collaboration behind it, which has involved BP's founder Alice Reyes, who did the original choreography; Maestro Ryan Cayabyab, who composed its music; National Artist for Literature Bienvenido Lumbera, who penned its libretto; and National Artist for Theater Design Salvador Bernal, who designed its costumes and sets.
