M. BUTTERFLY NATIONAL TOUR 2019
SETS FINAL PERFORMANCES IN CEBU MAR. 14 - 17


The M. BUTTERFLY National Tour 2019 will spread its wings for their final performances in SM SEASIDE CEBU from March 14 - 17.

Presented by Tony and Grammy award winning producer Jhett Tolentino and FRONTROW Entertainment (producer of highly-acclaimed independent films BhoyIntsik and Bwaya), the M. BUTTERFLY National Tour 2019 was decided upon by the producers to bring this world-class masterpiece to those who did not have the opportunity to catch its 2018 Manila run. After all, location should not limit one’s exposure to the arts and culture.

Most theater companies in our country whose successful productions in Manila are often hindered from bringing their projects to other key cities because of the many challenges and technical details involved. And this is why Jhett Tolentino and FRONTROW Entertainment are taking this bolder step to carry on their mission and advocacy in the performing arts and to further enhance audience development throughout the Philippine archipelago.

The schedule of performances of M. BUTTERFLY in CEBU CITY are as follows:
Mar. 14 - Thursday - Opening Night - 7pm
Mar. 15 - Friday - 7pm
Mar. 16 - Saturday - 2pm / 7pm
Mar. 17 - Sunday - 2pm / 7pm
VENUE : SM Seaside City Centerstage
Tickets: SM Tickets through any SM Mall or SMTickets.com

This revival production of David Henry Hwang’s M. BUTTERFLY is the winner of the 2018 ALIW AWARDS for Best Play, Best Actor and Best Director and nominations for The Best Featured Actress in a Play.

Synopsis:

René Gallimard is a member of the French embassy in China. René is mild mannered and considers himself to be poor with women. He meets and falls in love with Chinese opera star Song Liling, a woman whom he considers to be the embodiment of the perfect woman, Madame Butterfly. But when West meets East, everything is not what it seems….

Targeting audiences between ages 18and beyond, the producers are hoping that this classic drama, inspired by Giaccomo Puccini'sopera ‘Madame Butterfly’, will likewise resonate to theater audiences from Luzon, Vizayas and Mindanao that “ love, power and deception holds no boundaries – whether this be in a rural or urban setting.”

RS FRANCISCO, the 2018 Aliw Award Best Actor for M. Butterfly shall reprise his iconic portrayal of Song Liling, the Chinese opera singer who is Gallimard’s object of affection and seduces him through his biases of the East then exploits their intimacy to collect classified information for agents of the Chinese Communist Party.
            
           RS first essayed this role in May 1990 for Dulaang UP, opposite veteran actor, writer and critic Behn Cervantes. On its debut, M. Butterfly immediately rose to critical acclaim with packed houses and box office success in over 100 performances throughout the Philippines.

In the many years thereafter, RS Francisco’s theater credits in numerous productions and variety of roles continued to hone his craft as a compleat artist. In films, his most awards include the SINAG MAYNILA Best Actor, the STAR AWARDS Movie Actor of the Year and the SUBIC BAY INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL Best Actor.

When M. BUTTERFLY was revived recently on Broadway, RS had thought of bringing it to life once again to the new theater audiences of today. After all, this is the only ‘one’ role that continues to remain as closest to his heart.

To add a diverse twist to the M. Butterfly National Tour 2019, young actor AIRA IGARTA will step into the role of Song Lilingas alternate in certain performances. As an original member of the Kurogo ensemble of the play’s 2018 Manila run, Aira is a stage and film actor from the Theatre Arts Program of UP Diliman where he took part in several Dulaang UP and DulaangLabortoryo productions. Trained by the likes of Tony Fabella and Luther Perez, Aira was originally a dance and voice scholar at Quezon City Performing Arts Foundation (QCPADFI).

French actor OLIVIER BORTEN shall essay the role of Rene Gallimard, a former French diplomat, who relates the story of his passionate, disastrous affair with Song Liling from his cell in a Paris prison, where he is serving a long sentence for treason.
Philippine theater royalty JENINE DESIDERIO, who among many other theater, film, television and recording credits, assumed the lead role as Kim in the West End’s original Miss Saigon, will portray Gallimard’s wife – Helga. The pair married as a matter of convenience; Helga’s father had diplomatic connections that helped Gallimard ascend in his career.

After 25 years of stage acting experience in the United Kingdom, Scottish NORM MCLEOD has stepped in the Philippine stage as Manuel Toulon, the French Ambassador to China who also happens to be the dominant and strong-willed superior of Gallimard at the embassy in Beijing. Toulon promotes Gallimard to vice-consul and charges him with collecting information to aid the American war in Vietnam.

Trilingual American actor LEE O’BRIAN will once more personify Marc, the sexually unapologetic best friend of Gallimard. He encourages Gallimard to take sexual advantage of the women around him without regard for their feelings or even their consent. Although M. Butterfly was Lee’s first theatrical endeavor, his acting skills have already been tried and tested in international films “Edsa Woolworth” and “Forgive Me Father”. O’Brian also portrays Sharpless in M. Butterfly for a brief while.

Portraying the different roles of Suzuki, Comrade Chin and Shu Fang is powerful and well-rounded artist MAYEN ESTAÑERO. Her impressive performance in the 2018 run of M. Butterfly landed her an Aliw Awards nomination for Best Featured Actress. Mayen’s previous theater credits include Dalanghita Production’s Corazon Negro, An Operetta as Maestra, Virgin Labfest’sMulasaKulimliman as Leila and Sugid Production’s Buwan at Baril as Asawa. Comrade Chin is a member of the Red Guards, a paramilitary arm of the Communist Party in China. Song communicates with Comrade Chin often, to pass on the classified information he gathers from Gallimard.

Twice a finalist as Best Actress for the Aliw Awards, MAYA ENCILA receives her third nomination as Best Featured Actress for her unique characterization of Renee and Pin-Up Girl in M. Butterfly. The stunning Arizona native plays a young, sexually liberated Danish woman with whom Gallimard has an affair. Renee’s boldness presents a stark contrast to Song’s modesty, which Gallimard finds both exciting and obnoxious. A true expert in performing arts, Maya has taken the stage countless times as Mary Lennox for The Secret Garden, as Belle for Repertory Philippines’ Beauty and the Beast musical and as Lara for Philippine Stagers’ KATIPS, to name a few.
Rising soprano star JASMIN SALVO will be the new Opera Singer for the national tour.

The members of the ensemble playing the role of Kurogo are as follows: PHEITH IENA BALLUG, ULLYSES BASA, SASA CABALQUINTO, FRANCO FERRER and JOHN PAUL ORTENERO.

The artistic team of M. Butterfly are as follows: Jhett Tolentino and RS Francisco (Producers), Ohm David (Set), Eric Pineda (Costume), John Batalla (Lighting), Jethro Joaquin (Sound),Joed Balsamo (Music) and Carissa Adea (Choreography).
The M. BUTTERFLY NATIONAL TOUR 2019 will benefit the following charitable institutions namely: Iloilo Prima Galaw, Philippine National Red Cross Iloilo Chapter, The Children of Cebu Foundation, Silliman University Culture and Arts Council and the Arts Council of Cebu Foundation.

Live a quality life. Live in VISTANA - PEARL RESIDENCES (Sikatuna)

Live a quality life. Live in VISTANA - PEARL RESIDENCES (Sikatuna)
True to its promise, the Vistana - Pearl Residences has finally opened its doors at the heart of Sikatuna Street in Cebu City.
This mid-rise 10-storey commercial and residential building is perfectly situated just beside Zapatera Elementary School and a short distance from major Cebu universities: University of San Carlos, University of the Visayas and Velez College.

The Vistana - Pearl Residences is aimed at providing quality life to working parents who need to send their children to school everyday

In the usual scene, a family with schoolchildren will need at least three hours a day for preparation at home and travel to work - that is just on top of another two hours in going back to the house at the end of the day. That’s an average of five wasted hours.

Imagine the five hours you will save if your house is just across your children’s school? You will only need to wake up a few minutes before school starts because the school is just near. This saves you and the kids hours, which you will then use for cooking meals for the kids or watching a television show with them after dinner.
If you want a quick night swim, Vistana - Pearl Residences has a swimming pool for that kind of whim. There is also a playground if your children feel like running around; or a fitness gym if everyone decides to do yoga or zumba before dinner. Vistana - Pearl Residences is not just a residential building, it is your home. The developer also makes sure that the place will not become crowded so everyone will get to enjoy quality time together.
By 2021, Vistana will have the complete 65 studio units and five 1-bedroom units, of which prices range from P2.3M to P4.2M.
Vistana - Pearl Residences chose to build its latest project at the heart of Cebu City to help the Cebuano families attain a quality of life.
Once you’re in Vistana, there will be no more late meetings or running to and from school like a pendulum.
Visit Vistana - Pearl Residences in Sikatuna and see the kind of life you will give to yourself and your family.
To know more about Vistana - Pearl Residences, contact BG Summit, Inc. at 253 4964. Or visit them at the Capitol Square in Escario St., Cebu City
