Noli Me Tangere: from the print to the stage
Noli Me Tangere, Latin for ‘touch me not’, is a story originally written by Filipino national hero José Rizal during the Spanish colonisation of the Philippines. Originally written in Spanish, the novel was first published in the Philippines in 1899. Although copies of the story had been smuggled into the country years before, it quickly became the country’s national epic, and in turn was studied in schools and turned into a theatre performance. Perhaps not as famous as other operas such as Verdi’s "La Traviata", Wagner’s "Der Ring des Nibelungen", or Puccini’s "La Boheme", "Noli Me Tangere" depicts the situation in the Philippines at the time perfectly. It goes into detail about how the local population was exploited, and even sometimes killed, by the Spanish who laid claim to the country by the Catholic Church.
