|thanks V for holding the tickets :)|
Last month, my husband and I won six tickets from Ballet Philippines' facebook promo. So, for the second time around we were able to watch a ballet show for free (1st was the Tales of the Manuvu) at the CCP main theater (Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo), Pasay City, together with our 7-year-old son (it was his first time to watch ballet ^_^). And because we got six tickets my dear brother and his girlfriend tagged along.
In celebration of the centennial of International Women's Day (100 years!) Ballet Philippines presented Inamorata, the heart of its 42nd season: Faces of Eve which showcased the many faces of woman.
Ballet Philippines performed the three classical pieces : The Dying Swan the immortal classic about a magnificent woman in her last breath, the comedic love pas de deux from Harlequinade, Flames of Paris a sampling of woman's strength, set in the French revolution, plus the new works of the top choreographers in the country: Nanay which is about the impact of a woman leaving behind her child to work abroad, Battle of the Sexes which shows how a woman is putting up a good fight against the male dominated society. I really, really like the latter of all the performances.
When the first piece was presented, my son said the female ballerina was dancing like Michael Jackson (moonwalk!) ^_^. I was actually a little worried that he would get bored and yes on the middle part of the presentation he was already yawning! On the last part of the presentation...yikes! he had fallen asleep. Nevertheless, I was happy that he appreciate the first performance.
