A TIME­LESS TALE

Philippine Tatler - - CONCIERGE | HOT TICKET -

Bal­let Philip­pines ends this year with Edna Vida’s retelling of a Christ­mas clas­sic,

which nar­rates the story of a young girl’s favourite toy com­ing to life. Var­i­ous in­ter­na­tional bal­let com­pa­nies have mounted the pro­duc­tion, but Vida’s ver­sion is made spe­cial to the Filipino au­di­ence due to its lo­calised set­ting, as well as the cos­tumes, de­signed by the late Na­tional Artist Sal­vador Ber­nal in 1987. It takes view­ers back to the Span­ish colo­nial era in the Philip­pines and makes use of fa­mil­iar images of bougainvil­leas, and the like. The show runs from 1 to 10 De­cem­ber at the CCP Main The­atre, Pasay City.
