Dulaang UP’s second offering on its 37th Season, The Seagull/Ang Tagak, is a compelling discourse about art, life, and love presented through intricate characters and situations in what is widely considered to be master dramatist Anton Chekhov’s greatest work. In the middle of these romantic and artistic conflicts are more elaborately developed characters, a staple of Chekhov’s works. This comedy in four acts effectively discusses themes in art and life that remain relevant in this day and age.

The Seagull/Ang Tagak is directed by the venerable Tony Mabesa. The production stars theater veterans Ana Abad Santos, Frances Makil-Ignacio, Ces Quesada, Leo Rialp, Menggie Cobarrubias, Jeremy Domingo, Alfonso Deza, Stella Cañete Balucas and promising actors Carlo Tarobal, Zafrullah Masahud, Nadine Samonte, and Karen Gaerlan.

It was staged both in English (translation by Tom Stoppard) and Filipino (translated by Rolando Tinio). The production is on its last run this week.

Here are some production photos from the Filipino version October 3rd. (The entire set is HERE.)

Miranda Beloto, wife of Governor Bingo Beloto is obsessed with the idea of bringing to her impoverished province the first staging of a full length opera. As she prepares to face her corrupt, insensitive husband, she must also deal with the pressure from her own manipulative mother. It seems that Miranda’s foolhardy vision of beauty is all she can cling to in the face of so much brutality. Or is she herself a crucial part of the vicious cycle of corruption?
