Lisa Macuja channels ‘Queen Mother mode’ in Ballet Manila’s Swan Lake
It was time for prima ballerina Lisa Macuja Elizalde to pass Swan Lake on to the next generation of dancers.
The wife of broadcasting magnate Fred Elizalde was a regal sight during Ballet Manila’s Swan Lake at Aliw Theater. As the Queen Mother, she rallied her dancers from her esteemed ballet institution to a resounding and well-deserved applause.
“Passing down Swan Lake to our next generation of dancers! @katherine_barkman YOU WERE an AMAZING SWAN QUEEN tonight! Well [email protected] hands down has the best corps and soloists and principals for this classical warhorse of a ballet! What a spectacular Swan Lake we had tonight! And a generous standing ovation to mark our premiere,” @lisamacuja shared on Instagram.
Ballet Manila will again perform Swan Lake at Aliw Theater on Oct. 14 at 6pm and Oct. 15 at 3pm.
Hail, Queen Mother Lisa! Congratulations, Ballet Manila! #
