BGC Arts Center and MusicArtes present Gian Carlo Menotti’s THE MEDIUM, a thriller music drama on November 2, 3, 4, 23, 24 & 25 at the Zobel de Ayala Recital Hall of Maybank Performing Arts Theater.
Director Leo Rialp restages an exciting version of The Medium featuring singer-actors Lara Maigue, Joseph Nabong, Ronaldo Abarquez, Margarita Roco, Anna Migallos and Jay Valencia Glorioso with pianist Dingdong Fiel.
First presented in New York in 1947, The Medium also ran on Broadway’s Barrymore Theater. Menotti directed a “film noir” version in 1951 to reach a global audience. This rare dramatic piece is a play of ideas expressing joy, love, hope, fear, deception_ the search for truth and God.
The Medium in Manila is by kind permission of the Music Sales Group. Tickets are available at Ticketworld (8919999), and at MusicArtes Inc. (8958098/ 09189085088).
