Orosman at Zafira

Last night we went to see Dulaang UP’s ‘Orosman at Zafira’ at SM MoA’s Centerstage. The play, based on the work of the same title by Francisco Baltazar, tackles the consequences of love and the painful decisions that we sometimes have to make for it.

I must admit that I had trouble understanding what the actors were saying on stage from time to time, but it did not matter. The play brilliantly captured the words of Baltazar through its magnificent ethno-pop-rock fusion music and the amazing dance numbers which blended ethnic moves with modern jazz, with a hint of street and even of hiphop.

The production numbers are nothing short of astounding, with actors jumping, somersaulting, and thumping their limbs with the music created by a terrific band. The actors delivered, with some of them giving a very heartfelt performance (especially those who played Zamora, the narrator, and the evil brother).

But with all those big words that  I have used, all I really want to say is that I loved the play. You would too, if you take the time to see it.
