Wazzup Pilipinas!

After being performed in the USA, Canada, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar, Jordan, China, and most recently, Indonesia and Korea, Ballet Philippines brings its highly celebrated touring repertoire, “Master Pieces” to the CCP Main Theater as part of Dance.MNL: The Philippine Dance Festival.

BP will showcase “Master Pieces”, a mixed bill showcasing a collection of some of Ballet Philippines’ most acclaimed works. The repertoire has garnered glowing reviews and standing ovations since it was first toured, with raves such as “a stellar display of the diversity of our culture”, “extraordinary ballet worthy of world-class audiences”, and “The show has it all – atmosphere, romanticism, poetry and the indomitable Filipino spirit.”

As a testament to the company’s versatility, the works are an array of classical ballets, neo-classical works, modern & contemporary dances, and excerpts from full-length modern ballets.

The repertoire includes works by George Birkadze, William Carter, Augustus “Bam” Damian III, Tony Fabella, Alden Lugnasin, Paul Alexander Morales, Carlo Pacis, and National Artist for Dance Alice Reyes.

“Master Pieces has evolved since we last performed a preview of it during our Blue Moon Gala two years ago,” notes BP artistic director Paul Alexander Morales. “We are very excited to bring these landmark choreographic works back to our home stage to give our audiences here a chance to see what we’ve been bringing out to the rest of the world.”
