La Luna Roja was first staged in 2012 as a condensed version of the entire story during the annual performance of Fundacion Centro Flamenco. Said version only featured the second act of La Luna Roja and focused on the village centuries after the curse has taken hold of it.
It wasn’t until 2017 that the production was presented in its entirety. This version delved into the origins of the curse, making it more poignant. It also explores darker themes such as betrayal and suicide.

The production highlights an all-Filipino cast led by Grupo Nuevo Flamenco with special participation from Spanish artists to honor Spain, the birthplace of Flamenco.
Said artists include Javier Martos, who has also performed in the 2017 run of the show, Isaac Barbero, Ruben Campos, among others.
Tickets are available via TicketWorld online and TicketWorld outlets nationwide.
