The Philippine Opera Company, home of the country’s premiere opera singers, proudly presents “Harana” on August 28, 2008, 8 p.m. at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati City.
Featuring sopranos Ana Feleo, Deeda Barretto, Karla Gutierrez and Florence Aguilar with tenors, Glen Gaerlan, Sherwin Sozon and baritones Jack Salud and Lawrence Jatayna, “Harana” promises to take its audience to a spectacular musical journey showcasing the very best of Philippine music. From indigenous and pre-colonial to contemporary and fusion, each musical suite is theatrically presented with authenticity, originality and visual excitement.
“Harana” is Philippine Opera Company’s newest addition to its exciting line up of show packages. The word “Harana” is the Tagalog name of a traditional form of courtship in which a man woos a woman’s affection by singing underneath her window. The creation of each “Harana” suite is a product of thorough research with the commitment to preserve indigenous Philippine music and its appropriate dance and folklore. It also aims to restructure and enhance these research findings to evolve repertoires suited to the demands of contemporary theater, and to promote international goodwill through performances at home and abroad.
