Florante at Laura Set to Open on July 31

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Gantimpala Theater Foundation Inc. proudly presents its 38th season opening production Francisco Balagtas’ “FLORANTE AT LAURA” -- one of the most enduring Filipino literary masterpieces described by many as a poetic art that examines the nature of justice, truth and commitment to fairness, written into a play by award-winning and respected playwright Boni Ilagan, with multi-awarded actor, Roeder Camañag as its director.

The famous Filipino love story uses the theater form of the ‘komedya’ complete with its majestic marches and grand batalia. See how the love of florante, laura, Aladin and Flerida conqyered the warring Moors and Christians.

“Boni Ilagan wrote such a superb script!” exclaims director Camañag. “His interpretation of the classic focuses on the many facets of love — from its purest form to its most corrupted version. His understanding of Balagtas’ words allows audiences the opportunities to witness Florante’s encounters with love — his love for knowledge, his love for his parents, his brotherly love for his best friend Minandro, his romantic love for Laura, his love for his enemies, and ultimately, the love for his country and the Higher Cause.”
“We are highlighting the beauty of the language and the elements of komedya,” he continues. “What we give the public now is a tribute to Florante and Laura, as literary characters, a tribute to Francisco Balagtas and his mastery of the Tagalog language, and a tribute to the komedya, which is a true Filipino theater form.

Portraying the lead roles of FLORANTE AT LAURA 2015 are Paul Jake Paule (Florante), Ellrica Laguardia (Laura), Ace Urieta (Adolfo), Jefrey Carpio (Aladin), and Sharlene Rivera and Ira Ruzz (Flerida).

Majority of my cast are members of Gantimpala’s Actor’s Company. I think I have chosen a formidable group. All of them are doing very well. We are pushing them, bringing out their best.” Playing the Albanian prince Florante is Paul Jake Paule. Ellrica Laguardia portrays Laura, princess and Florante’s sweetheart. “If I were to describe my leads, they are the perfect personification of the values, virtues and symbols of Balagtas’ written texts, Paul Jake exudes regal air, bravery and sincerity while Ellrica is passionate, fiery and strikingly beautiful.”

The supporting cast include Ku Aquino (Haring Linceo/Sultan Ali-Adab), Billy Parjan (Duke Briseo), Julena Dondon (Reyna Floresca), Morris Sevilla (Menandro), Basty Batistis (Antenor), and King Urieta (Makata).

  34. Zonder al te veel poespas gewoon een nieuwe, strakke en frisse wandafwerking? Dan is het spuiten van latex muurverf een goede uitkomst. En ook dan moet je bij Latex Spuiten XXL zijn. Het hanteren van de speciale spuiten voor latexverf hebben wij ons in de loop der jaren eigen gemaakt. Door de spuittechniek ontstaat er een egale structuur, die een stuk strakker is dan bij het sauswerk met een traditionele verfroller. Bovendien is de klus een stuk sneller geklaard – ondanks dat we de werkzaamheden minstens zo gepassioneerd als traditioneel binnenschilderwerk uitvoeren. Latex spuiten is daarom doorgaans voordeliger dan latexen met de verfroller. Disclaimer: dit is afhankelijk per situatie en oppervlakte.
