Under construction: Lisa Macuja-Elizalde’s Sleeping Beauty
Sleeping Beauty, the third installment of prima ballerina and Ballet Manila’s artistic director Lisa Macuja-Elizalde’s princess trilogy, is currently under construction. Though the 24th season is still six months away, and Sleeping Beauty is set to premiere in November, the company is hard at work with learning the new choreography for what is promising to be an enchanting season.
In this clip, principal dancer Abigail Oliveiro is seen dancing on her toes again after recovering from an injury. Joining her in the teaser are soloist Jessica Pearl Dames, company artists Shaira Comeros, Jessa Balote, Nanami Hasegawa, Kotomi Narai, and trainee Charlotte Gleeson.
