LAPULAPU Ang Datu ng Mactan

October 24, 2021

A musical production set to mark a milestone in the country’s theater scene is the staging of “Lapulapu Ang Datu ng Mactan” written by Nicolas B. Pichay (ACC 2009, Ma-Yi Theater Company), with set and costume design by Gino Gonzales (ACC 1998-2000).

The stage production is a fitting tribute to the victory of local hero Lapulapu (La/pù la/pù) against Colonial Spain’s “attempts to subjugate a number of the tribes then living in the islands in 1521.” The National Historical Institute of the Philippines leads the celebration that also coincides with the 500th year anniversary of the circumnavigation of the globe.

Coincidentally, the play is made more significant as the chosen show to reopen the newly refurbished and restored major architectural structure in the heart of Manila, the 1931 built Metropolitan Theater.
