The Quest for the Adarna will be directed by Joy Virata, with music by Rony Fortich and with the book and lyrics by Luna Griño-Inocian.
Following the story of the original epic, The Quest for the Adarna is set in the prosperous and peaceful kingdom of Berbania, which is ruled by King Fernando and his wife Queen Valeriana.
They have three sons, all of whom are mighty warriors. Prince Pedro is the eldest and the heir to the throne, while the second is Prince Diego and the youngest is Prince Juan.
Their blissful life is shattered when King Fernando is struck by a mysterious illness—an illness that can only be healed with the song of the Adarna, a mythical bird who makes its residence in Mount Tabor.
Anyone who seeks the Adarna must face a perilous journey that is difficult and full of danger.
