UP presents ‘Ang Mahiwagang Hardin’ musical

MANILA—The University of the Philippines (UP) College of Music will present the premiere of Dr. Ramon Santos’ “Ang Mahiwagang Hardin (An Opera Tableaux)” on January 31, at the Abelardo Hall, UP College of Music in Diliman, Quezon City.

Roselle Pineda directs the musical play, with visual design by Teta Tulay and musical direction by Christopher Borela.

The 1964 opera tale of the protagonist Ligaya and her flower friends is a visual and musical journey that crosses the real and surreal illustrating that truth, love and beauty transcends time, place and form.

The opera features some of the most celebrated Filipino performers and talents, including the UP Madrigal Singers, Coro de Sta. Cecilia, the UP Dance Company, and solo artists Jesper Mercado, Mary Jane Egloso, Biance Camille Lopez, Kitbielle Pagui, and Ervin Lumauag, among others.
