LEGAZPI CITY: The country’s oldest epic showcasing ancient heroes will be brought to life anew in the month-long Ibalong Festival that features Tanghalang Pilipino artists led by Janine Desiderio of Miss Saigon. “Ibalong” which celebrates the myths and legends of the country’s sole epic long before the colonizers came will be plied today by the Legazpeños where dancers from all sectors of the society, government agencies and schools will be showcasing its prowess to the public with the plea of taking care of environment here. “Our festival [Ibalong] is different from other festivals in the country as we’re engaging with climate change long before the impact we’re going through today. This epic even captivated the artists of Tanghalang Pilipino and they’re staging the country’s oldest epic at no cost to the city government of Legazpi,” Mayor Noel Rosal told reporters in a press briefing here.
