Manila, Philippines. Gone are the days when opera was treated like an old-world spirit and a cultural event where people needed to dress in the nines. National artists Guillermo Tolentino and Felipe Padilla de Le کیn's "Nolli Mai Tengier, The Opera" welcomed the second time in Manila by the young men who wanted to revive the roles they had just met at school. For a limited race of just three shows at the Central Theater of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), "Knolly" became a hotspot where teachers, students, and music lovers celebrated the national hero Jose Rijal's novel. Come together, which awakens the sleeping nation to consciousness and opacity.
Set in the post-Spanish tours of Spain, "Noli" has only one message for its viewers: to remind the nation of the tragedy of history a great deal of greatness. As timely as it may seem, production opens symbolically along the 50th year of the CCP where the Philippines will once again be subject to a test: this time for the 2019 mid-term elections. Rarely do we recognize that such productions exist not only for the obvious reason for the money argument (students receive a 50% discount) but also an artistic interpretation of a national treasure in the big note Available to the Philippines. As it speaks of national pride, it is more encouraging and emotional. Maybe a three-day commute is not enough, but as they say, "beautiful things don't last long to prolong its beauty and vigor."
The "Noli" is as small a talk of the city as the Philippines, and even the immigrants traveled far to find out what the country's national opera could be considered. All the shows were sold with the clear message that the crowd was getting more and more hungry.
However, it is unfair to compare past "groove" production to this. J&S Production, led by New York-based Filipinos Jerry Sibal and Edwin Josu, ensured that the version would be simpler, but such "simplicity" made the show closer and more popular. The sets were just plain LED monitors and this ensured that the spectators would be connected to the actors. The sentiment was echoing after hearing clear whispers in the corners of the 1,821-seat theater. Actors and musicians, note, were mostly new blood, and so this "tube" has the potential to bring them closer to their artistic goals. Playing in CCP is a dream, but performing in CCP in "Knolly" is a two-dimensional feat that has changed.
Each song and aria line felt an overwhelming pride that the Philippines would be able to write a compilation and perform it in the most compelling way. Ready. The fact that it was sung in the Philippines made it more meaningful, which pierced every heart of the theater. A shared sense of nationalism and happiness has long been seen as a theater that has long been regarded as the "true, good, and beautiful" (CCP's slogan) temple.
Probably the song "Sa Loping Pangaku" – a sincere duo of Ebra and Maria Clara. It summarizes the nation's quest and can be very good in the contribution of opera to the country's songbook.
The country is enjoying a chapter in its history where the revival of the Philippines and the pride of the Philippines is increasing and this production only serves the needs of the people. This short visit to the "Noli" in the CCP is not enough to honestly consider the number of visitors to Thiela who are only willing to keep up with Manila's traffic. Here's hoping people return to opera.
