Opening Dulaang UP’s 35th season is the restaging of Francisco Baltazar’s Orosman at Zafira.

The contemporary adaptation directed and choreographed by Dexter M. Santos and original music by Carol Bello garnered nominations for both Best Musical Production and Best Stage Director at the 21st Aliw Awards. It also received acclamation from various renowned critics and artists.

Baltazar’s Orosman at Zafira is about the enmity due to thirst for power and the beliefs of the three tribes – the Marruecos, Tedenst and Duquela. In the midst of hate and war whence two individuals find love, this adaptation highlights its women characters in their unyielding strength. This production also celebrates the Philippine heritage through its ethno-linguistic music and the fusion of modern and cultural movements.

This adaptation includes in its roster of casts bright and promising actors in the persons of Delphine Buencamino, Tasy Garrucha, Jerson Lafuente, Joel Molina, Reuben Uy, Jean Judith Javier, Tao Aves, Roeder Camanag, Kevin Concepcion, Gabs Santos, Acey Aguilar, JM De Guzman, Jacinta Remulla, Natasha Cabrera, Jules Dela Paz, Ronnie Martinez and the Dulaang UP Ensemble.
