Ballet Philippines has been around since the 70s, and have continually delivered exemplary performances as the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ (CCP) first resident company. They’re best known for their excellent performances and are widely recognized as a cornerstone of contemporary Filipino identity.

In their first of a series of retrospectives, Ballet Philippines looks back at some of their internationally-acclaimed classics that haven’t been shown to today’s audience. See Alice Reyes’ “Itim Asu”, Denisa Reyes’ “Muybridge Frames”, Gener Caringal’s “Ang Sultan”, Norman Walker’s “Songs of a Wayfarer”, and Pauline Koner’s “Concertino” in this possible once-in-a-lifetime chance to see works that haven’t seen the light of day since the 70s and 80s.
