Dulaang UP’s ‘Orosman at Zafira’ headlines 4th National Theater Festival

Prepare to be mesmerized once again as the Cultural Center of the Philippines and Dulaang UP team up in bringing back to the stage the critically-acclaimed blockbuster production of Francisco Baltazar’s “Orosman at Zafira” for the 4th National Theater Festival this November at the CCP.

Relive the love, passion and conflict between and among the three tribes of Marruecos, Tendenst, and Duquela in this spellbinding adaptation of what is widely held to be Baltazar’s magnum opus. The production has masterfully reintroduced this classic komedya to younger audiences through its deft melding of ethno-linguistic music and contemporary modern and cultural movements, making “Orosman at Zafira” a unique theater experience of a lifetime.

This production first ran in 2008, was restaged in 2010 to sold-out, standing-room-only performances at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, UP Diliman and was met with rave reviews. It is directed and choreographed by Dexter M. Santos, with original music by Carol Bello, and garnered nominations for both Best Musical Production and Best Stage Director at the 21st Aliw Awards.

Cast members who will be reprising their earlier roles include Delphine Buencamino (Zafira), Jay Gonzaga (Orosman), Roeder Camanag (Abdalap), Jean Judith Javier (Gulnara), Nazer Salcedo (Boulasem), Neil Tolentino (Mahamud), Ronnie Martinez (Ben-Asar), and Tao Aves (narrator). New additions include Ricky Ibe, Chuck Hipol, and Kierwin Larena,

“Orosman and Zafira” is a celebration not just of Philippine theater but of Pinoy talent, as well, arguably the best theater talent in the world. It is one show that should not be missed and one which remains fresh and exciting even after three productions.

This staging of “Orosman at Zafira” is made possible by the CCP and the cooperation of the Office of the President, University of the Philippines. It will be staged from November 17- 18, 2012 at the CCP. Call the CCP box office for tickets at  832-3704.
