Since the show opened in 2014, Rak of Aegis has taken Manila, figuratively and literally, by storm! The original Pinoy musical brought one of the greatest OPM icons, The Aegis Band, to the spotlight by featuring their powerful hits and karaoke favorites “Halik,” “Sinta,” “Basang Basa sa Ulan,” and more.
Rak of Aegis was also one of the first Filipino productions which ushered in the trend of jukebox musicals, giving birth to a newfound appreciation for theater and original Pinoy music that crosses all boundaries of social class and age. Today, Rak of Aegis is the longest-running original Pinoy musical in contemporary Philippine theater.

Set in three periods of Philippine history, Dolorosa tells the story of a family whose devotion arms the women to face the tides of historical change. During the Spanish occupation, a wooden statue of the Mater Dolorosa, crafted by a master sculptor from Paete, Laguna, is mysteriously lost. In the Japanese era, Pilar, the sculptor’s granddaughter, discovers her powers of astral projection and is visited in an apparition by the Sorrowful Mother, tasking her to search for the missing statue.
The show will go onstage at the Doreen Black Box (Areté, Ateneo de Manila University) from August 15 to August 31, 2019, from Thursday to Saturday. Thursday and Friday shows will be at 7:30PM, while Saturday shows will be at 2:30PM and 7:30PM.
