I have been a fan of theater, but like most of Filipinos, I don't have the money to spend for tickets. I remember in college, I would watch the free staging of plays and musicals by Intramuros Administration at the many venues within the historical walled city. I have heard about the musical Rak of Aegis last year. Being a fan of the group, I am instantly drawn to watching it and curious on how a story develops from their popular songs I would attempt to sing along.
Now, I am very fortunate to belong in a company that supports Filipino Music, Theater and Artists. Victoria Court have help sponsor concerts of big artists like Regine, Ogie and Musicals like Full Monty, and Rock of Ages. I literally jumped off my office chair when I found out that, we are also sponsoring Rak of Aegis. It was a different Marketing team that handled the project, and I was texting and emailing non-stop to secure myself a seat. I got an Orchestra seat for the 8PM show last March 5.
In the audience were the officers of the Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit that included Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez to name a few.
I was laughing and crying with the different characters in the story, top billed by Aicelle Santos. It was about the struggles of girl who lives in a flooded area of the City who dreams of making it by posting a video on youtube hoping it would go viral and be invited on Ellen Degeneres show. I will just name the more popular cast members that included Robert Sena and Isay Alvarez, but all of them gave a stellar performance.
After the curtain call, and the standing ovation, I was on my feet again, when the actual group Aegis entered the stage and performed their classic hits. I was singing on top my lungs not caring to hit the high notes. I would have posted pics, but my battery gave up on me. I am close to tears hearing them perform live. Now I know how it feels to be a fan and seeing your idol up close.
After the show, I waited at the entrances so I could have a photo of them. I so love Aegis!!!
