The show marks two important milestones in her life - her 50th birthday and her 30th anniversary as a professional ballerina. I'm grateful, and my daughter was more than grateful for seeing this one-night only special concert.

Such a great performance!
We saw her perform Juliet in Romeo and Juliet with Ballet Manila principal Rudy de Dios. Wow! She's still in her best form... and that's perfection at its finest!
Everything - from the guest artists from Ballet Manila, Philippine Madrigal Singers and ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Gerard Salonga - complements the classical theme beautifully.
Lisa Macuja then performed the role of Princess Aurora in Marius Petipa’s Sleeping Beauty Divertissement. Her partner, guest dancer Mikhail Martynyuk (as Prince Desire) of the Kremlim Ballet Theater was exceptional as well.
At the curtain call, the prima ballerina came out on stage in her glittery golden long gown. There, everyone joined in singing the Happy Birthday song.
People who bought Lisa Macuja's pointe shoes get to meet and greet the prima ballerina after the show.So lucky!

And our brief yet golden moments with the prima ballerina!
|happy to meet you Ms. Lisa... may you continue to dance, inspire and touch lives :)|
Thank you so much Papa John's Pizza Philippines for the VIP tickets! We wouldn't be there without you. :)
