Der Kaufmann (Shakespeare's "Merchant of Venice") at the CCP from September 27 - October 13, 2013

Hey guys! Here is an interesting take on William Shakespeare's "Merchant of Venice." It's set during the Holocaust, the time when Nazis were terrorizing Abraham's children, plus Antonio is portrayed as a homosexual. The first few minutes of the play, already brought tears to my eyes.  All the actors are superb! My personal favorites are Portia (Regina de Vera how can you memorize all those complicated lines? Bilib!), Antonio (Marco Viana I feel your pain) and Shylock's youngest daughter (you have a bright future in theater dear Trixie Esteban =) I just wish the dialogues used easy to understand Filipino words. Nosebleed ako!

I watched "Der Kaufmann" on opening night, thanks to Lorelei Celestino, marketing and sales associate of Tanghalang Pilipino =) Terno pa kami ng suot, mukhang sasayaw hehe =) (Translation: Our clothes match in color, looks like we're going to perform a dance number =)

About the Show: (Source: TicketWorld)

Directed by Rody Vera and Tuxqs Rutaquio 

Written by renowned English poet and playwright William Shakespeare, the Merchant of Venice is often considered as a romantic comedy in Shakespeare’s compilation of plays known as the “First Folio,” but has been more regarded for its dramatic take on religion and mercy.

The play is about a bitter and detested Jewish moneylender who seeks revenge against a Christian merchant who has defaulted on a loan. TP’s version will be a departure from the usual interpretation. A play within a play, it will be set at the time of the Holocaust, with Nazis directing the Jewish “actors” and will underscore the dehumanizing effect of racism and intolerance. In this adaption, the viewers will choose between love for a friend and love for money.

This innovative take on Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice, as translated by National Artist Rolando Tinio, will showcase Rody Vera’s adaptation and direction and TJ Ramos’ sound design.

"Monsters, mayhem and music highlight new theatrical show
In the midst of a great war between mortals and monsters, a serpentine creature falls for a man, leading to the birth of a new civilization.
Tanghalang Pilipino caps its 26th season with a dance-theatre musical interpretation of the Bicolano epic, “Ibalon,” adapted for the stage by prolific playwright Rody Vera and directed by Tuxqs Rutaquio with Carol Bello’s musical direction, Alden Lugnasin’s choreography and costume design by Leeroy New.
Using elaborate costumes, energetic fight choreography, and haunting music, Tanghalang Pilipino promises audiences of all ages an enthralling theatre experience rarely seen in original Filipino theatre." - TicketWorld Website
