After a pause I’m back in the production with a major role, the emperor Kublai Khan 8the son of Genghis Khan).
Hopefully you watched the previous runs of Marco Polo where I played Baron Tegan, the main antagonist to Marco Polo’s quest conquering the heart of Princess Kogajin.
Yeah, I love playing the bad guys 😀
It’s an honor to be back in the production with this role with several solo songs, a lot of weight… it’s a big challenge.
The notes are high and demanding, the acting too coz I’ll be playing a father and an emperor nevertheless.
I’ll work hard to give you the best.
And this is the preview of the latest version of the libretto and instrumentation. It has been bettered from last run at Meralco Theater.
Now we move to the most prestigious theater in the Philippines, to the CCP. All Pinoy performers respect performances at the main theater of the Cultural Center of the Philippines. So here also goes some pressure on our shoulders.
Here a pic of our last performance where I played bad ass Baron Tegan: Baron Tegan by Kuya Manzano in Marco Polo the Musical.
On stage as my wife will be the great Pinky Marques, what an honor. And legendary theater actor Chingoy Alonso as the Narrator. Princess Kogajin will be played by Stephanie Reese (Miss Saigon in Germany), my daughter.
See you in March 2015 at the CCP.
