Philippine Opera Company’s “Harana”, a Cultural Journey



Everyone in UE is invited to the UE Theater this Wednesday, August 12, 2015, as the UE Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA) brings to us the Philippine Opera Company’s Harana. The show starts at 2 p.m. Free admission to the UE community!

Harana, which is the Philippine word for “serenade,” represents the official cultural arm of the Phiippine Opera Company. Per the Company, Harana is composed of eight highly celebrated singers, each an accomplished soloist in his and her own right.

To quote further from the Philippine Opera Company: This presentation is aimed at showcasing the evolution of Philippine music through song, movement and drama. The repertoire is composed of six suites, each suite to be theatrically presented replete with authenticity, originality and visual excitement.

Each suite was borne out of thorough research, with the commitment to preserve indigenous Philippine music and its appropriate dance and folklore. The entire presentation is also aimed at restructuring and enhancing such research findings to evolve repertoires suited to the demands of contemporary theater and to promote international goodwill through performances at home and abroad. The result is an absolute feast to the sense.

Catch this cultural feast, Warriors!
