|Florante at Laura||Florante at Laura by Francisco Balagtas
UP Centennial Edition
Editor: National Artist Virgilio S. Almario
Translator: Marne L. Kilates
Published by the UPD Office of the Chancellor, (c) 2008
The epic poetry of Balagtas is best exemplified in Florante at Laura. A love story set in Albania against a backdrop of conflict between Christians and Muslims in an ancient era, it has withstood the test of time, and still sparks the imagination of those who read it. Today, it continues to enjoy numerous retellings in stage plays, movies, exhibitions and even animation.
Joining the ever-growing list is this UP Centennial Edition which is made special by several significant features, primarily the reconstruction of Balagtas’ text by National Artist Virgilio S. Almario. It also bares a new translation in English by award-winning poet Marne L. Kilates. Placed side by side with the reconstructed Filipino text, the translation offers fresh insights to a Philippine literary classic.
This book also features artworks created for the Florante at Laura exhibition which was presented as part of the Komedya Fiesta 2008 1st National Festival held in UP Diliman.

This gift of music is inspired by the evocation of place and song by youth. The place is the university town of Diliman, coddled by trees and gardens, the art and architecture of National Artists, and the passions of scholars. And the songs form a lively repertoire of Filipino and foreign titles, running the range of classical, folk, and popular expression.
We celebrate this sense of place in song through the voices of the University’s finest choirs: The UP Concert Chorus, UP Madrigals, and the UP Singing Ambassadors.
