Iza Calzado returns to the stage for re-run of Sabel this August

Iza Calzado (in photo) will once again star in Sabel: Love & Passion. This theatrical production is a brainchild of BBC broadcaster and art collector Rico Hizon who was inspired by the moving depictions of National Artist Ben Cabrera of a madwoman in the streets.

Iza Calzado will once again narrate and perform as National Artist Benedicto “BenCab” Cabrera’s infamous madwoman of the streets.

She will lead the cast members of Sabel: Love & Passion, which is being restaged at the Music Museum on August 11 and 12, 2015.

Sabel is a show that defies classification (Stage musical? Ballet recital? Pop concert?).

Inspired by National Artist Ben Cabrera’s famous paintings of a madwoman of the streets, Sabel: Love & Passion stars the beautiful Iza Calzado who narrates the entire show while acting in the title role.

It is a musical cum ballet recital cum pop concert (cum teleserye) all packed into one hour and thirty minutes and performed without an intermission.

Intriguing to say the least, this production is inspired by the paintings of National Artist Ben Cabrera featuring a madwoman of the streets. Narrating the show as well as performing in the title role is actress Iza Calzado, acting for the first time ever on stage.

Dancing out the whole story to the choreography of Ronilo Jaynario is the Philippine Ballet Theater while the songs are performed by concert singers Aicelle Santos, Bo Cerrudo, Joaquin Pedro Valdes and Timmy Pavino.

Renowned pop hitmaker Louie Ocampo handles the Music and Musical Direction while Aliw Awards Hall of Fame Director Freddie Santos is in charge of the lyrics, script and stage direction.

Featuring an abstract set designed by Joe Tecson, the show also serves as a canvas for high-tech video mapping as designed and executed by Video Sonic.
