Amid today’s din and drudgery, Ephesus Teatron Group comes out like a breeze from the desert with Timeless — a journey to love and life. Not just to dream but to inspire.
Come aboard the carpet, a repertoire of unforgettable songs of love, of praise. Not performed but interpreted with the heart and finesse of the country’s major talents: Sweet Samaniego Buchanan, Steven Hotchkiss, Margarita Roco, Red Nuestro, and Terence Guillermo.
But only three curtain calls, the first at 7:00 pm, Friday, May 4th and 3:00 pm then 7:00 pm, Saturday, March 5th at the Function Hall, Venice Luxury Residences, McKinley Hill, Taguig City.
Timeless is a fusion of cultures, a coalition of taste from Italian and Neapolitan love songs, the gumption of arias, the coyness of kundiman, and the soaring of the spirit with oratorio, sacred songs of praise.
