Rama, Hari Closes Ballet Philippines’ 50th Season This March
Ballet Philippines ends its 50th season on a high note with the pop ballet, Rama, Hari. Happening from March 20 to 29, 2020, at the CCP Main Theater, Pasay City, the ballet breathes new life to the Ramayana, one of the two major Sanskrit epics of Ancient India.
The production celebrates the undeniable talent of Filipinos in dance, song, and story-telling.
This production is quite unique as it brings to the stage a dance-musical that is the product of four of the country’s National Artists, namely Bienvenido Lumbera for the Libretto, Ryan Cayabyab for the music, Salvador Bernal for the Production Design and Alice Reyes for the choreography and direction.
Rama, Hari is based on the Ramayana, a Sanskrit epic that details the life of Rama—the legendary prince of the Koshal Kingdom. The Ramayana, along with the Mahābhārata forms the Hindu Itihasa (Itihasa can be translated to “history”).
Cinderella, the favorite rags to riches tale makes its way to the Main Theater stage of the CCP as Ballet Philippines’ third offering in its 50th Season.This story of love will surely bring Yuletide joy! Cinderella runs from December 6-15, 2019 at the CCP Main Theater.

It was first staged by Ballet Philippines in 1980 starring Kuh Ledesma, Basil Valdez, and Leo Valdez. Since then, the mega-production has become a classic with its innovative form of story-telling that brings together singers and dancers into a showcase.
The production was also staged in 2012 starring Christian Bautista and OJ Mariano as Rama, Karylle Tatlonghari and Kalila Aguilos as Sita and Robert Sena as Ravana. The Ballet Philippines’ principal dancers involved in the 2012 production are Jean Marc Cordero and Richardson Yadao as Rama and Carissa Adea and Katherine Trofeo as Sita.
This epic tale is surely one that you wouldn’t want to miss! Tickets start at Php 300 for Balcony 2 seats while Orchestra Center seats are priced at Php 3,000.
