A week after I watched Wicked, here I am back in the theater, as a spectator, to see Ballet Philippines and Cultural Center of the Philippines' production of Swan Lake. My friends and I watched on the night of Feb. 25, 2017, on its International Gala, with Candice Adea and Joseph Phillips as Odette and Siegfried. The Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Maestro Yoshikazu Fukumura, accompanied the ballet. Also, Ms. Margie Moran Floirendo, President of Ballet Philippines Foundation Inc, also participated in the production.
