Rama, Hari Captivates Miriam College

First-year, BA Communication students of Miriam College recently enjoyed the privilege of watching the renowned theatrical masterpiece, “Rama, Hari,” on February 24, 2024 at the Samsung Performing Arts Theater.

The show began with a background and tribute to all who were involved by the director and choreographer, Alice Reyes. She described it as a “rock opera ballet show” and gave special credit to the execution of its latest revival to four of her fellow national artists. Namely, Ryan Cayabyab for the score, Bienvenido Lumbera for the libretto or vocal text, Salvador Bernal for the production design, and Rolando Tinio for the English supertitles. 

Divided into two acts, “Rama, Hari” is based on the Indian epic, Ramayana, and tells the story of the titular character’s journey to prove himself a worthy ruler of his kingdom by conquering the evil forces which plague him and his loved ones. It is true to the source material that is described as, “a cosmic battle between good and evil.”   

“Rama, Hari,” most recent run similarly pursues good since the money earned will be going to different charities as said by one of the stars, Karylle Tatlonghari-Yuson. The Orchestra of the Filipino Youth, which provided the score under Toma Cayabyab, was said to be one of the beneficiaries. Tatlonghari-Yuson fittingly ended with the sentiment, “artist for artist, always.”   

Exhibition spanned six days, from February 16 to 18, and February 23 to 25. It was presented by the Cultural Center of the Philippines, performed by Alice Reyes Dance Philippines and RCS Singers, and starred some of the biggest names in Philippine theater.

At 44-years in production, “Rama, Hari” is a testament to the enduring beauty and appeal of performing arts in the Philippines. Its artistic value and timeless themes of courage, virtue, and love have gone on to persistently renew interest in Filipino theater throughout the generations. All these and more cement it as a national treasure.
