What price do we pay.. when everything is for sale?

What happens to a society that is overrun by greed and materialism? By shifting moral values and by acquisitive desires?

Collection, the much-awaited new work from acclaimed playwright Floy Quintos is a dark comedy that paints a disturbing picture of society obsessed with conspicuous consumption, surface glamour, and the endless, unsatisfying pursuit of the Next Big Thing. Collection closes Dulaang UP‘s 37th Season.

In this artistic vision of a materialist hell, a fictional government agency, the National Commission on the Disposal of Philippine Patrimony, has sanctioned the sale of historical and national treasures like the Banaue Rice Terraces, the Chocolate Hills and the Malolos Constitution. The proceeds go to a national lottery designed to alleviate poverty through dole outs.

The restaging of the musical treat of 2011, Noli Me Tangere: The Opera kicks off Dulaang U.P.’s new season. The critically-acclaimed operatic retelling of Rizal’s opus by National Artist Felipe Padilla de Leon with libretto by another National Artist Guillermo Tolentino comes hot on the heels of its sold out four-week run last November. It is directed by DUP Artistic Director Alexander Cortez, with music direction by Camille Lopez-Molina and features some of the country’s finest classically-trained singers. It is also the birth centennial tribute for National Artist Felipe de Leon with libretto by another National Artist, Guillermo Tolentino.

Noli Me Tangere: The Opera returns on stage from July 18 to August 12, 2012 and is also DUP’s tribute to Padilla de Leon’s birth centennial.

The show will run from July 18 to August 12; 7pm on Wednesdays to Fridays, 10am and 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, 2nd flr. Palma Hall, UP Diliman, Q.C.
