“Awitin Mo at Isasayaw Ko” is a story of forbidden love between Teresa, a kolehiyala and Victor, a construction worker amidst the backdrop of the Philippines in the late 70’s – burning with disco fever but chilled by the horrors of Martial Law. They are separated in life but are united in heaven and once again dance up a storm. They will be featuring the songs of Manila Sound legend VST & Co. The show is in collaboration with the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Maestro Gerard Salonga.
