Ballet Manila presents Snow White

Due to the success of “Cinderella,” another masterpiece from the Prima Ballerina will have its world premiere in the 22nd performance season, “Flights of Fantasy.” Snow White will make its world premiere on November 25, 2017 at 6:00 PM at the Aliw Theater.

Ballet Manila’s take on the fairy tale classic, Snow White, will be more Brothers Grimm than Disney when it comes to the production’s look and feel. This was a conscious decision made by Lisa herself, as she wanted the storytelling to be the main star of the show. They are “storytellers on toes,” after all.

With the help of Ballet Master Osias “Shaz” Barroso and even the dancers’ little quips and comments, and of course, the company’s mastery of the Vaganova technique, Snow White promises to be a magical and fantastic show—all in all, a truly Ballet Manila production.

From the costumes to the dancers themselves, there’s a sense of synergy that will be most evident when the show finally makes its world premiere. Lisa provides a teaser about the set designs and costumes:

“Set designer Mio Infante has talked about making mushrooms the main feature in the forest. There will be so many dynamic elements on stage like a moving mirror, as well as animal figures. Popular nursery rhymes will also be used in the music being arranged by Von De Guzman. Longtime Ballet Manila costume designer Michael Miguel will once again make amazing costumes. Watch out for Snow White’s costume changes!”

With Snow White, Lisa guarantees that each member of the audience will get their fill of pure magic, romance, and fantasy. The audience can only expect the highest quality of dancing as well from the country’s youngest yet strongest ballet company.

Lisa Macuja-Elizalde’s Snow White will make its world premiere on November 25, 2017 at 6:00 PM at the Aliw Theater. There will be three other shows: November 26, (3:00 M), December 2 (6:00 PM), and December 3 (3:00 PM).
