In this 3 part story, Ballet Manila intelligently presents how each of the stories relate with the Filipino culture and how good character has been inculcated to young minds. Good manners and right conduct has always been the main ingredient of Severino Reyes' stories.

From start to end, I was amazed with the production as it was so grand it can be compared to international production sets. Each scene is packed with great sceneries added with perfect sound arrangements and lighting. Costumes are also commendable and surely audiences will enjoy the colorful and unique designs suited for each character. I haven't stopped saying wow every time the curtain goes up or after the lights turned on scene after scene.
