In its best moments, the production has a hypnotic, phantasmagorical feel to it, summoning through the power of words and music a lost world that is unmistakably Filipino. Where character and plot development matter most— and where tragedy presents itself as an opportunity to be mined, especially in the first act—Deldoc tends to pull back. As such, the main points of conflict come across as cop-outs. It is admirable how this production wisely plays to its strengths.

No notes for slide. A Summary… 4. Centuries ago, there was a great warrior who was widely known in Ilocos as a hero who fought the Igorots. When Lam-ang was born, he had the most unusual ability to speak immediately at birth. He asks where his father was, and, upon being told that his father was killed by Igorots, Lam-ang vows revenge; a vendeta is born.
Lam-ang grows up immediately, and goes up into the mountains to take his vengeance. Alone, he fights off dozens of Igorot warriors, defeating them all. He cuts off the ears of the warriors, as trophies, and returns to Ilocos. He then meets and is captivated by a beautiful woman named Ines, and he immediately falls in love.
He pledges to her all of his gold, land, and livestock. As the most beautiful woman in the province, Ines has many suitors, but all quietly gave way to Lam-ang, since they knew that they could not compete with him for her affections. All, except for a giant of a man named Sumarang, who would not yield.
Lam-ang and Sumarang fight and Lam-ang wins, easily defeating Sumarang. Lam-ang and Ines are married in the largest wedding feast that ever been seen in the province. Other versions say that Lam-ang went to catch a rare fish called rarang. Lam-ang dives into the sea and on his way down, is eaten by a fearsome fish called the Berkaken.
Heartbroken, Ines goes into mourning, as did most of the town, as Lam- ang was their hero. Namongan gave birth to Lam-ang. Lam-ang made revenge to the Igorots for his father.

Christian Cultural Elements Biag ni Lam-ang and Hudhud hi Aliguyon Nationhood is not manifested in the story because the Filipinos were not united and tribal wars still occur. Tribal wars also existed in the story. The battle was between Aliguyon and Pumbakhayon.
They have the same strength and it is the reason why the war lasted for 3 years. They cannot defeat each other. But, in the end, both their tribes agreed to be at peace. Thus, nationhood can be seen in the story because the tribes united in the end. Just the same with other epics, men are considered superior because of the existence of battles. But unlike Hudhud hi Aliguyun, a more formal way of courtship was emphasized which manifests a great respect to women. Patriarchal system is also observed.
Men are considered superior. It is because they are the one who go to battles. This tradition is manifested in the scene where Aliguyon curses his mother and at the same time he didn. You just clipped your first slide!

‘Lam-ang’: Filipino musical theater’s needed return to legend
It is notable for being the first Philippine folk epic to be recorded in written form, and was one of only two folk epics documented during the Philippines' Spanish Colonial period, along with the Bicolano epic of Handiong. As oral literature, the poem is believed to have originated in pre-colonial times, evolving as it is passed on from poet to poet and generation to generation. Arsenio Manuel instead attributes its first written documentation to Fr. Blanco of Narvacan, working with the publicist and folklorist Isabelo de los Reyes. The poem is sometimes attributed to the blind Ilocano poet-preacher Pedro Bucaneg , who supposedly dictated it so that it could be written down. Some texts, such as Celedonio Aguilar's Readings in Philippine Literature Rex Bookstore, even state that this transcription occurred in  - long after Bukaneg is believed to have died. Instead, historian E.
Biag ni Lam-ang
The story was handed down orally for generations before it was written down around assumedly by a blind Ilokano bard named Pedro Bucaneg. They had a son named Lam-ang. Before Lam-ang was born, Don Juan went to the mountains in order to punish a group of their Igorot enemies. While he was away, his son Lam-ang was born. It took four people to help Namongan give birth. As soon as the baby boy popped out, he spoke and asked that he be given the name Lam-ang. He also chose his godparents and asked where his father was.

The epic was very long, written versions of it available today seem to show that it was close to stanzas. It is believed to be the work of several poets of different generations, each poet making his own alterations or additions until the 17th century when Pedro Bukaneg, father of Ilocano poetry put it down in writing for the first time about in both Ilokano and Spanish versions were later written by Canuto and Medina Ruiz, the Parayno Hermanos, Isabelo de los Reyes, and Leopoldo Yabes. However, the Bukaneg version seems to be the basis of all other versions. Bukaneg had retouched the story and put in some Christian material. At the time Namongan was getting ready to deliver her first born, Don Juan had to go to the mountains to punish an Igorot band. While the husband was away, Namongan gave birth to a baby boy. The boy was very strange because he could talk from the moment he was born and even he told his mother that he should be named Lam-ang.
