Crisostomo Ibarra Is A Ballet Dancer

Crisostomo Ibarra and Maria Clara are ballet dancers.

Witness Dr. Jose Rizal's Noli Me Tangere come to life in this contemporary dance version.

According to Ballet Philippines' website:
Crisostomo Ibarra springs to life in a new production about a young man's struggles to stand tall in his ideals despite the cruel buffets of fate. The dance narration takes the audience inside the psychological world of Ibarra and strips bare this epic story that underscores the continuing relevance of Rizal's timeless character.

Watch them gracefully jump, tiptoe, pirouette, and pliƩ live on October 15, 16, and 17 at the CCP Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino.

Padre Damaso will probably make an appearance. I'm not sure if Carlos Celdran will do the same.

Tickets are priced at Php 500 for 10am and 3pm performances and Php 800 for 8pm shows.

Bring a friend.
