Siddhartha the Musical

About

Cebu's longest-running original musical, Siddhartha is based on the life and work of Siddhartha Gautama, a historic figure in the old 600 B.C. India who renounced his royal life, achieved enlightenment, and became the Buddha. He espoused the practice and propagation of The Noble Path, setting in motion one of the oldest and richest religious traditions of all time.

Presented by the Fo Guang Shan (FGS) Chu Un Temple and the Buddha's Light International Association (BLIA)-Cebu, Siddhartha recently celebrated its 100th show in late December 2016. While it has traveled the world with performances in the U.S., New Zealand, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, and Australia, it is a proudly homegrown production with an all-Bisaya cast, crew, and production team.
