I am excited to watch Ballet Manila 2.0 as it presents a medley of classical favorites and original Filipino ballets plus the world premiere of Bloom, Belgian-Colombian choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s first work for an Asian dance company.


It is not a secret that most of Ballet Manila’s alumni are making waves internationally, thus BM 2.0 also showcases the guest appearance of BM alumna Christine Rocas who is guesting together with Joffrey Ballet colleague Rory Hohenstein. They will perform the Balcony Scene in Krzysztof Pastor’s Romeo & Juliet and Christopher Wheeldon’s After The Rain.

Pursuant to Ballet Manila’s mission of bringing ballet to the people through OPM (Original Pilipino Music)/ Pinoy choreography, the artists of BM 2.0 will dance to the tune of Tara Let’s. This colorful piece was originally choreographed by BM principal artist Gerardo Francisco for the 2014 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference.
