Philippine Ballet Theatre

The Philippine Ballet Theatre is a classical ballet company in the Philippines. The Philippine Ballet Theatre was founded in 1987 out of an alliance of leading dance groups. It quickly won recognition as a resident ballet company of the Cultural Center of the Philippines.[1]

The Philippine Ballet Theatre pursues the goal of bringing the art of dance to the general appreciation of Filipino audiences. With its concurrent preservation of the classical story ballets,[2] such as Swan Lake, Giselle, The Nutcracker, and Raymonda, the theatre also launches contemporary ballets like Carmina Burana[3] by David Campos. The company has travelled in national and international tours presenting its Filipino and Western repertoire.[4]
