Auditions for "Tales of the Manuvu"

The UP Concert Chorus was in the cast of the original production of "Tales of the Manuvu", and some of the lead roles were also taken by UPCC members at the time. And that is why we are encouraging all UPCC Alumni and members to audition and be part of the new "Tales of the Manuvu" production! Details of the auditions below.

Ballet Philippines is holding auditions for singers for its new production of Tales of the Manuvu, a dance-musical based on the Manuvu myth of creation, directed by Paul Morales with new choreography by Alden Lugnasin.

Auditions will be held on August 25, Tuesday 5:00-8:00pm at the CCP Silangan Hall and Aug 28, Friday 6:00-9:00pm at Arts in the City, FVR Park, 26th St., Bonifacio Arts Center.
Applicants should prepare 1 Filipino pop ballad or "Noong Unang Panahon", the hit single from Manuvu composed by Dero Pedero. Applicants may bring a music score or minus-one for their audition. Applicants may submit their bio-data or resume to info[at]balletphilippines[dot]org

For more information, please call Melissa at 832-3689.

Tales of the Manuvu is seeking for 2 pop tenors, 1 baritone, 1 alto/soprano, and 8 singers for the chorus to complete the cast of the new production under the musical direction of Jed Balsamo and Diwa De Leon, and accompanied live by Makiling.

Performances are scheduled on Oct. 23, 24 & 25 at the CCP Main Theater.

Created by founding Artistic Director Alice Reyes with libretto by National Artist Bienvenido Lumbera in 1977, Tales of the Manuvu, a pop rock opera ballet, was one of Ballet Philippines' biggest hits and featured collaborations with leading singers including Boy Camara, Haji Alejandro, Leo Valdez, Isay Alvarez and Celeste Legaspi. Tales of the Manuvu also discovered Leah Navarro and launched her career.
