In 1531, the recently overcome land after that referred to as New Spain (recognized today as Mexico), a series of inexplicable events (although others call it amazing) happened, as well as would certainly alter the globe permanently. That unbelievable real tale is currently the basis of Guadalupe: The Music, a new staged manufacturing in English, provided by the Julie Borromeo Performing Arts Foundation.

Certainly, it was a tale that brought so much wonders in the lives of the people– an unconvinced bishop, a brutal governor, and also a passing away male revived from the edge of death.

” The story of Juan Diego of Guadalupe is almost a music already,” says Borromeo, that is both manufacturer as well as choreographer (together with Rose Borromeo), of the program. “But what makes this story various is all the superordinary aspects in it that merely can’t be described.” And the majority of what happened are maintained in public record: the painted images on Juan Diego’s currently famous tilma (or apron), which show no evidence of any type of brushstrokes, and also whose pigments originate from a resource unknown to nature; the seeming impenetrability of the fabric from which it was made; the mystical recuperation of Juan Diego’s dying uncle; the checklist continues.

Although it tackles on amazing taking place, Guadalupe: The Music, which stars stage icon Cocoy Laurel (as Juan Diego), is not a traditional faith-based show. “It’s not a ‘spiritual’ musical therefore,” declares movie theater tale Baby Barredo, that routes the piece. “It’s an effective piece of movie theater that just takes place to consist of spiritual aspects.” It’s an important difference, as well as one that drove the production of the program from the start.”

For scriptwriter and lyricist Joel Trinidad as well as author Ejay Yatco, the innovative job was to use factual, historical occasions as a background for a real story which contains some imaginary components. “A few of the most prominent musicals worldwide incorporate reality as well as fiction this way,” shares Yatco. Yet how can Guadalupe … audiences inform truth from fiction? “You’ll see some things in this show that appear totally doubtful,” states Trinidad. “Those are the ones that really occurred.”

Guadalupe: The Music will take place stage from September 29 to October 14, 2018, at the Meralco Theater. For fundraising or institution task chances, contact Ria Pangilinan at 09175378313 or
