Pinocchio

“TFM sat down with the cast and artistic team of Ballet Manila’s upcoming show Pinocchio. Its original production was staged back in 2002, with seasoned dancer Alvin Santos playing the title character at the ripe age of 17. Thirteen years later, he reprises his role with musical theater actress Tippy Dos Santos playing the Pink Fairy. The Pink Fairy tells the story of Pinocchio in the eyes of her best friend — the Blue Fairy.”

Fatima Leana: “It was such an unexpected and amazing experience. Ms. Menchu truly inspired me beyond words.”

“During the first few minutes, we were all a bit tense because… who wouldn’t be? But she was the type of person who would make anyone feel instantly comfortable, with no ego, no air in sight.”
