Florante at Laura

The Philippine Heritage Council of Manitoba presents the masterpiece of Philippine literature, ‘Florante at Laura’ on Saturday August 26th.

Francisco Balagtas, known as the “Prince of Filipino Poets” and the “Filipino Shakespeare”, completed his epic in 1838 and it is one of the foundational pillars of Philippine Literature. This is the first time Florante at Laura is being read in full in Canada or in the US.

This production being led by visionary director Ronald Mervin Sison and is a collaboration between The Philippine Heritage Council of Manitoba through President Perla Javate, members of the Manitoba Association of Filipino Teachers Inc (MAFTI) represented by Gennalyn Tan and Vicky Cabrera, and Magdaragat Philippines Inc led by Goldie Garcia. The company cast is composed of local Filipino talent who have selflessly volunteered their time and effort to make this production a reality.
