PHILIPPINE Ballet Theatre, Inc. (PBT) a Resident Company of the Cultural Center of the Philippines will present the classic all-family Christmas favorite, “The Nutcracker” on November 13-15 at the CCP Main Theatre.
By popular demand, the “Golden Boy of Ballet”, Joseph Phillips, will return to Manila from Russia to perform the role of the Nutcracker Prince, partnering PBT’s home grown ballerinas, Veronica Ylagan. Lobreza Pimentel and Regine Magbitang will take on the roles of Clara and the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Joseph Phillips has won more gold medals than any American male dancer and is currently one of only two American danseurs in Russia as principal dancers. The State Primorsky Opera and Ballet Theatre where Joseph performs multiple roles has recently become a part of the Mariinsky Ballet Company.
