2018 is here and I couldn't be more happy to share with you Ballet Manila's return to the stage in Ballet &Ballads. In an effort to bring ballet to the people and the people to the ballet, the country’s premier classical dance company plans to close its current season with a star-studded affair.

A tradition in almost all of Ballet Manila’s performance seasons, Ballet & Ballads, once again returns to the stage to bring music and lyrics to life. With Ballet Manila CEO and Artistic Director Lisa Macuja-Elizalde, Heartthrob crooner Christian Bautista, The Klassikal Musical Foundation, and The ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra.

The newest installment of “Ballet & Ballads” premiered last February 10, 2018 at 6:00PM at the Aliw Theater. The other show schedules are: February 17 (6:00PM), and February 18 (3:00PM). 

Heartthrob crooner Christian Bautista is set to lead the roster of singers as a guest performer. He’ll sing some of his greatest theater hits, as well as songs from his latest album. 

Joining Christian are artists from the Klassikal Musical Foundation (KMF) such as Andrew Fernando (Baritone), Jade Riccio (Soprano), Stephanie Aguilar (Soprano), Krisann Manikan Tan (Mezzo Soprano), Leo Angelo Lanuza (Tenor), and with the special participation of Dr. George T. Yang (Tenor). This marks the first-ever creative partnership between the country’s premier classical dance company and KMF. 

The ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra, no less, will serenade the audience during the entire night. The acclaimed group has also prepared a very special Teleserye suite featuring a selection of classic hits from the ABS-CBN primetime repertoire. The show will surely trigger some nostalgia, especially among fans of Filipino pop culture. 

Ballet & Ballads will also mark the world premiere of Martin Lawrance’s Aria, which will feature five acts covering classical operas. The British choreographer previously partnered with Ballet Manila for the highly acclaimed Rebel and Amid Shadows. 

With such a powerhouse lineup for Ballet & Ballads, the audience is set for pure enjoyment when the curtains go up in Aliw Theater.

Xoxo, 💋
