CCP Celebrates 53rd Anniversary with MUSIKAL II
This year marks the 53rd Anniversary of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) and the start of a long-awaited renovation that will bring the CCP Main Building facilities again in a state comparable with the world’s best.
In line with this, the CCP presents MUSIKAL II, the sequel to “Musikal: A Musical Theater Celebration” staged in 2014, on September 10, 2022 at Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo (CCP Main Theater). The program will consist of excerpts of original Filipino musicals from 2015 to 2021 in vignettes featuring leading artists from various theater companies and will be live- streamed throughout the country.
