Ballet Manila’s Lisa Macuja on Sleeping Beauty

Font Size

Ballet Manila presents Sleeping Beauty, the last installment of the “Princess Trilogy.” Choreographed by Ballet Manila CEO and artistic director Lisa Macuja Elizalde and Osias Barroso, the ballet will be staged on Jan. 18 and 19 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World Manila, Pasay City.

The performance comes on the heels of a fire that ravaged the Star City complex in October 2019, destroying the Aliw and Star Theaters which was Ballet Manila’s home.

The ballet by Ivan Vsevolozhsky and Marius Petipa, set to music by Peter Tchaikovsky, has been modified by shortening its running time and removing its divertissements.
