The theater located in Pasay City first shut its doors after the fire incident last October 2019
In October 2019, a tragedy took place in Pasay City as its famous arts and entertainment sites were burned. Amusement park Star City and playhouses Star Theater and Aliw Theater were devoured by flames, pushing them to close their doors. After three years and the setbacks caused by the pandemic, Star City opened earlier this year. Following that is the unveiling of the Aliw Theater, which took place on Aug. 10, 2022.
“The journey to has been bittersweet,” the prima ballerina says during her speech. “When the fire happened we have a bigger vision of what we are going to be… [we are] leaner but stronger, leaner but meaner, smaller but better. We start over again more determined and passionate… Ballet Manila can finally return to its home and mount a series of live performances starting in October 2022.”
