About the Show:
This production is in cooperation with the Cultural Center of the Philippines in honor of Ms. Fides Cuyugan-Asensio, who penned the libretto and lyrics of the Song of Joseph, for her dedication to music theater for 60 years.
“Song of Joseph”, the Musical, is a music-theater masterpiece born out of love and devotion for the man who “took care of the interests” of Mary and Jesus. It is the life, the love and the glorious death of St. Joseph put into beautiful libretto and lyrics of Fides Asensio inspired from the bible and other little facts known about Saint Joseph. The music of the libretto was a team work of husband and wife Jeannelle and Raymond Roldan as their debut in music composition. It depicts the enduring love of Joseph for Mary, its joys and sorrows and the reward of a glorious death for having lived faithfully his divine call to be Mary’s and Jesus’ protector.
It is the first original Filipino full length musical on Saint Joseph, produced by Fr. Rony Alkonga, OSJ (Oblates of St. Joseph) in collaboration with Music Theater Foundation Philippines for the 100th year anniversary of the Oblates of Joseph in the Philippines. The music arrangements were created in collaboration with Jun Latonio, Paulo Zarate, Gino Cruz, Jungee Marcelo, and Alvin Nunez.
Family life, love and unity are the themes of The ‘Song of Joseph’ making it appropriate for the Christmas Season.
