The crowds from Legaspi City’s universities again filled up the large Albay Astrodome in the MSU-IIT Integrated Performing Arts Guild’s (IPAG) 2nd visit in two months to this city famous for the majestic Mayon.

IPAG performed two shows of “Tales From Mindanao” last Feb. 4 and, expectedly, the audiences went gaga. Fans immediately swarmed the stage after both performances seeking photo ops and autographs from the artists.

The Director Steven Patrick C. Fernandez obliged to requests for an impromptu lecture to graduate students in Philippine Music of the Bicol University and for autographs on his book on theatre.

“Tales” has never failed to enthral audiences around the country and the world. Besides being IPAG’s most acclaimed international production, this dance-music production of Mindanao vignettes claims to be Philippine Theatre’s most travelled and performed show. A million audiences have watched “Tales” since this production premiered in 1991.

IPAG’s “Tales” ushered in Legaspi’s Arts Month celebrations and was the Guild’s own opening salvo for its road shows in February’s Philippine Arts Festival.
