Dancing in one voice

Philippine Ballet Theater collaborates with opera stars for the first time

Now on its 29th year, the Philippine Ballet Theatre is spreading its wings and gliding to the horizon of its future as it marks the first time a ballet company performs on stage with opera stars and finalists from The Voice Philippines through “Dancing in One Voice.” 

Conceptualized by PBT cofounder Julie Borromeo with pop balladeer and former finalist of The Voice Philippines Timmy Pavino, Dancing in One Voice is a concert style production that will bring artists from different fields in a performance that is a tacit recognition of the quiet unsung heroes at PBT who have and continue their commitment to support the youth in performing arts: the instructors, the producers, the choreographers, and of course the dancers.

“As fellow performers, we can totally relate to their dedication to their craft. And by coming together during this show, we show our solidarity and support, and hope our audiences come to appreciate them just as we do,” remarks Pavino.

“We want to get back to our roots of our original goal which was to widen the appreciation of our ballet art form while keeping it entertaining, meaningful and relevant to our lives. Art, after all – in all its forms – is truly a reflection of who we are and how we view ourselves,” says PBT president Sylvia Lichauco-De Leon.

Dancing in One Voice premieres at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Main Theatre for a limited run of only two performances on September 26th at 8 p.m. and the 27th at 6 p.m. Tickets are also limited, and are on a “first come, first served” basis at P1,500 for premium seating (box and front-center orchestra), P100 affordably priced for students and a range of prices in between to suit everyone’s preferences and budgets.
