Aside from birthdays, Christmas is one of the most anticipated occasion for kids because of the grand display of lights and decors, the tummy filling sweets and delicious dishes and most of all the gifts they receive.
But for Mytyl and Tyltyl, Christmas gave them more reasons to complain. No fancy gifts, no delicious food served, not even a Christmas tree. Something is missing, happiness?or is it them that’s lost?
Together with their loyal dog Tylo, their cat Tylette, and Light; Myltyl and Tyltyl went on an adventure in search of the Bluebird of Happiness.
Trumpets’ created a classic with The Bluebird of Happiness, a proudly Filipino musical adaptation of the Belgian play by Maurice Maeterlinck. From the stage setting to the costumes, everything was well thought of.
Accompanied by the lyrics of the director Jaime del Mundo, the music by Rony Fortich was well crafted, it delivered the right feel for each scene.
I have nothing but praises for all actors. The kids did an excellent job as Myltyl and Tyltyl; hitting the notes, delivering their lines and displaying the emotion needed which was felt in the entire theater.
I will give a special mention to Night (Joel Trinidad), he is very good Night(wink). The level of entertainment that his character gave was superb.
The Bluebird of Happiness has made up for lost time when Trumpets hibernated and Trumpets created a classic that will guide viewers in their search of happiness.
