The opera was composed by two National Artists: The music is by Felipe Padilla de Leon, known for translating the Philippine National Anthem from Spanish to Tagalog, while the libretto is by Guillermo Tolentino, sculptor of the state university's "Oblation." The story, of course, is adapted from Jose Rizal's novel of the same title, giving us a peek into the struggles of the Filipino people during the Spanish colonial era.
