love that sparked a war in Orosman at Zafira

hailed from Francisco Baltazar's epic love story, Bit by Bit Productions brings Dulaang UP's Orosman at Zafira in the SM Mall of Asia Centerstage starting from February 4 to 26.

Orosman at Zafira tells the story of three kingdoms, Marueccos, Tedenst and Duquela. in two individuals who found love, war have sparked between all the kingdoms which resulted to massacre and destruction. this also pictures the strength of a Filipina accompanied by great dances, amazing stunts and emotional lyrics from the writer's sorrowful love story.

a previous production is part of Dulaang UP's 35th anniversary. i saw it's run at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater in UP Diliman with a powerhouse cast including Jay Gonzaga (Orosman), Maita Ponce, Delphine Buencamino, Tao Aves, Roeder Camanag, Red Concepcion, Kevin Concepcion, Acey Aguilar, Jacinta Remulla, Jean Judith Javier, Natasha Cabrera, Neil Tolentino, Nazer Salcedo, Ronnie Martinez and the Dulaang UP Ensemble. it's nice that Bit by Bit Productions enhanced the show in a bigger theater. i wonder how will they interpret it in a more powerful manner.

the show from UP is breath-taking. though it is delivered in a very poetic way, visuals are very amazing. i also like to commend on Tuxqs Rutaquio's stage design for it was very simple and functional. you have to watch the war scene from the three kingdoms because it puts out the anger which you should have imagined reading the poem. this will be directed by Dexter Santos.

this is a perfect February date with your partner in the season of love. you may already get your tickets and have another way of spending Valentines - in a cultural way.
