The Philippine Opera Company raises its glass for its 20th year in the industry by bringing, yet another, a Sondheim classic to the Philippine stage.
PASSION – a musical adaptation of Igino’s Tarchetti’s FOSCA is a Sondheim masterpiece that has stood the test of time. It tells the story of the unattractive woman bound to capture a beautiful young man’s heart.
This musical explores the depth of affection, piercing through the trivialities of passing beauty and fleeting romance.
Joining the main cast are Sheila Valderama-Martinez as Fosa, Vien King as Giorgio and Jasmine Fitzgerald as Clara.
Directed by Gawad Buhay! awardee, Robbie Guevara, PASSION opens last saturday, September 14, and will run until September 29, 2019 at Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati City.
Tickets are available at Ticketworld.com.
