National Artist for Dance, Agnes Locsin’s award-winning Filipino dance masterwork, ENCANTADA, returns for a brand new 2023 Dance Season. A collaboration with Joey Ayala for Music, Al Santos for the libretto, and National Artist Salvador Bernal for Production Design, ENCANTADA is a showcase of Locsin’s Neo-Ethnic Dance Style as she masterfully utilizes it to move audiences with a poignant, relevant, and timeless story of man’s destruction of nature and the repercussions that follow.

Presented by the Metropolitan Theater, the Cultural Center of the Philippines, and Carmen D. Locsin Foundation, this production features the artists of CCP’s Professional Artist Support Program and Alice Reyes Dance Philippines.

Last staged in 2011, the production garnered 10 Gawad Buhay Awards, including Best Modern Dance Production, Best Choreography, Best Musical Composition, Best Production Design, as well as citations for Georgette Sanchez for Female Lead Performance in a Modern Dance Production and Carissa Adea for Female Featured Performance in a Modern Dance Production, both of whom will be reprising their roles for the current 2023 production.
