Noli Me Tangere

Date: 5 Mar 2019

José Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere is widely regarded as the great novel of the Philippines.

A passionate love story set against a tragic and unforgiving political background of oppression, torture, and murder, Noli Me Tangere (Tuch Me Not) led to Rizal becoming a beacon of hope and model of strength for the revolution that would eventuate.

This musical adaptation tells the tale of Crisostomo Ibarra, a mixed-race man who returns home after spending several years in Europe, his mind is filled with ideas about how to better the lives and futures of his people.

Against him are ranged the forces of a frequently barbaric Spanish colonial administration and the Catholic Church – specifically Padre Damaso, the parish priest who refused to give Ibarra’s father a Catholic burial and is intent on Ibarra’s demise.

Directed by industry veteran Aarne Neeme, this production features a cast of celebrated and emerging Filipino actors including Miguel Castro, Susana Downes, Marcus Rivera and Lena Cruz.
