Do You Hear the People Sing for the Benefit of Typhoon Yolanda Survivors


Wazzup Pilipinas!
"Do You Hear the People Sing? is the latest effort of Resorts World Manila along with Bouberg Productions, Enda Markey and the performers who waived their talent fees for those affected by the typhoon. Funds that will be raised from this production and auction will go to the rebuilding programs. The people behind the event hope to raise funds with the goal of building 200 homes."

On January 29 and 30, 2014, the creators of the international musical sensations Les Misérables and Miss Saigon will present a special concert entitled “Do You Hear the People Sing?” celebrating their work at the Newport Performing Arts Theater (NPAT) in Resorts World Manila (RWM) to raise funds to offer humanitarian relief and assist the rebuilding efforts after parts of the Philippines were left devastated in the wake of Typhoon Yolanda.

Do You Hear The People Sing? is the only symphonic concert that has been authorized (and created) by Boublil & Schönberg. The concerts have played to enormous acclaim in major concert halls throughout the United States and the Asia Pacific tour of the show recently commenced in China.



The concerts, which will raise funds for Habitat for Humanity Philippines, will celebrate the works of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg, including musical numbers from Les Misérables, Miss Saigon, La Révolution Française, Martin Guerre and The Pirate Queen.

Supported by the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra and a 100-member choir, conducted by musical director Gerard Salonga, the concert is headlined by some of the world’s leading musical theater performers.

In celebration of the long association between the Philippine theater community and the work of Boublil and Schönberg, the concert evening will feature special guests and a large ensemble made up of performers who have appeared in Miss Saigon throughout the world.

Lea Salonga, the Tony Award winning Filipina performer who rose to international stardom when she was cast in the original production of Miss Saigon, will headline the concert alongside Australian theater star David Harris (Miss Saigon, Wicked, Legally Blonde) and Marie Zamora (Barnum, Kiss Me Kate), the acclaimed French soprano who was the original Cosette in the Paris production of Les Misérables. Salonga, Harris and Zamora featured in the recent Asia Pacific Premiere of Do You Hear The People Sing? in China.
 
The partnership of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg changed the course of musical theater when the songwriters created Les Misérables. Now, the best fruits of their musical collaboration are coming to the Philippines in Do You Hear the People Sing?, a concert like no other featuring music from their masterpieces: the unforgettable Les Misérables, Miss Saigon, Martin Guerre, The Pirate Queen and La Révolution Française.

This exciting event will be staged for the very first time here in the Philippines, only at Resorts World Manila, after successfully touring across the globe. Do You Hear the People Sing? has been well received across the Americas, having toured in Mexico and various states in the US. In Asia, Shanghai Grand Theatre recently celebrated its 15th anniversary with a special production of this worldwide sensation.

Fully supported by Boublil and Schonberg, Enda Markey and IMG Artists, the Philippine shows on January 29 and 30, 2013, 8pm at the Newport Performing Arts Theater will mark the first time that this show will be staged as a benefit concert. All the artists are performing pro bono to support a worthy cause: proceeds shall go to rebuilding programs for the survivors of Typhoon Yolanda. With your support, the event hopes to raise funds with the goal of building 200 homes in areas ravaged by the typhoon, through Habitat for Humanity Philippines.

Witness a stellar cast: Tony Award winner Lea Salonga, who has played Kim in Miss Saigon and both Eponine and Fantine in Les Misérables; David Harris, one of the most acclaimed leading men in Australia; and Marie Zamora, the acclaimed French soprano who was the original Cosette in the Paris production of Les Misérables. David and Marie will be performing in the Philippines for the first time. Joining them are international artists who have performed in Miss Saigon shows across the globe, the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra and a 100-member choir, all under the musical direction of Gerard Salonga.

The entire company is donating their time and services pro-bono. In addition to these unique performances, there will be an online auction of memorabilia and gala night tickets (including hotel accommodation) for the opening nights of Les Misérables (Broadway and Melbourne, Australia); Miss Saigon (London).

Along with Bouberg Productions, Enda Markey and the performers who waived their talent fees, “Do You Hear the People Sing?” is the latest effort of RWM in a series of fundraisers to help in the relief and rebuilding phase following the destruction brought about by the typhoon—the first being the “1tayo” relief operation in partnership with other players in the industry and the second being the “Kami Naman Ang Taya” benefit concert held at the NPAT last December 3. Funds raised from this latest production and auction will go towards the rebuilding programs for the survivors of the typhoon. The event hopes to raise funds with the goal of building 200 homes in areas ravaged by Typhoon Yolanda through Habitat for Humanity Philippines.

Reflecting on their long association with the Philippines, composer Claude-Michel Schönberg said, “The Philippines gave me the voices of Miss Saigon, my daughter Margot and the joy of seeing Filipino babies adopted all around the world for nearly two decades already from my Manila orphanage, Sun and Moon.”
Alain Boublil added “Creating Miss Saigon with those numerous talented Filipino artists was the answer to a prayer. These two concerts bring this extraordinary adventure back to life and a chance for us to modestly contribute to those lives that were shattered. Let’s hear the people sing!”

“Do You Hear the People Sing?” will feature the music and lyrics of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg, creators of Les Misérables and Miss Saigon. It will run from January 29 to 30, 8pm at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Manila, Philippines. 

Ticket prices are as follows: 

Patron – PHP25,000; VIP – PHP15,000; Premiere – PHP9,200; Balcony Center – PHP6,700; Balcony L/R and Premiere B – PHP4,200 and are now available at all TicketWorld outlets and at the RWM box office.
